Be a True Dental Professional

  • Patients will be more likely to come back to your practice if they feel as if the team is filled with people who look at dentistry as a career, and not just a job.

    We would like to encourage you to always keep moving forward in your career. You should NEVER think you know everything there is to know about working in dentistry, because that isn’t true. Dentistry is changing at such a rapid rate, and the best team members are always trying to learn more and do more for their patients.

  • A true dental professional never stops learning.

    If a doctor has to do continuing education, why shouldn’t the rest of the team?

  • A true dental professional understands that even after many years in the profession, there are still so many things to learn.

    If you think you have nothing left to learn, you should probably leave the field of dentistry.

  • A true dental professional seeks out learning on his/her own.

    We are lucky enough to live in a time where all of our dental questions can be answered by searching reputable sources on the internet. Dr. Oz is not a reputable dental source.

  • A true dental professional joins other online and/or local dental communities for networking and professional growth.

    There’s a big dental world out there. See what other people are doing. Look past your own practice’s walls to see what improvements can be made in your practice.

    Take an interest in the industry. Ask questions. Don’t just wonder, “why”; seek “why.”

  • A true dental professional shares his/her wisdom gained with those in the eld who may need help.

    You will reach a point in your career when you can give back to your industry. That’s where Mary Beth and I are today. That’s why we created the Survival Guide series.

  • A true dental professional understands the vision and direction of the business and supports those ideas.

    If you do not know the vision and direction of the office you are working in, then please find out. If you do not know how the owner wants the practice to grow, then you cannot help the practice to grow.
