The Importance of Staff Meetings

Regularly scheduled staff meetings are essential to maintaining the effective day to day operations of a dental practice as well provide for the ongoing development of a dental practice. 

Staff meetings provide an important forum for problem solving and correcting day to day operational problems which are impossible to get in the middle of your day.  The ongoing correction of problem areas is essential to:

  • Maintaining high standards of patient treatment, service and care.
  • Maintaining high standards of teamwork and communication.

Staff meetings also provide the opportunity to work on the development of practice systems free from day to day operating pressures which is key to developing effective systems.   Developing effective systems also requires that teams follow planning, decision making and change management processes in order to effectively incorporate change.
