Motivating and Managing Staff for Success

by Danielle Apostolon, Senior SNS Project Manager

Hiring the right staff is a key factor to building a successful safety net dental practice. Recruiting providers and staff can be challenging and once you find the right person it is important to make sure they are satisfied and stay motivated! Programs with leadership who foster open communication, pay attention to staff morale, and provide feedback will be better poised to implement change and achieve their goals. Effective leaders set roles, goals and expectations for each individual staff member and for the dental department as a whole.
