This is a great time of year to start reflecting on where you are at professionally and/or in your practice in 2021 so that can start to make plans for a) to acquire or master a new skillset or increase your knowledge b) to get a project complete for 2021 or c) have a plan set to implement a program or protocol in 2022.
Reflect on these questions...
Are you feeling happy in your practice?
Do you like the practice where you are working and feel your voice is getting heard?
How are your communication skills with your team and your clients?
Have you been able to fully implement programs or initiatives successfully in your practice this year? Or has a program fallen through the cracks that perhaps was implemented before and you would like to revitalize it?
Have you been wanting to add Soft-Tissue Diode Laser to your practice to really Level-up your periodontal therapy protocols and enhance client outcomes?
Have you successfully implemented the Classifications for Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions?
Are you still struggling with your instrument maintenance and would like to set up a system to ensure that you are always using optimal instruments?
Are you screening your clients for Sleep Apnea and have implemented a protocol for your entire office to follow?
Are you totally confident in your Oral Cancer Screening techniques and documentation of findings?
The list could go on and on...
Now is the time to reflect on where you are at and where you would like to be by the end of the year or the end of next year!
Create a goal, and then a learning plan to help you achieve this goal. Find a mentor or a coach or look for courses that can help you get to where you would like to be.
Growth = Professional Confidence and Satisfaction = Happiness
