Is poor communication leading to low morale, misunderstandings, and missed opportunities?

In this course you will discover the systems and strategies that high-performing dental practices utilize to level up.

Realize the benefits of the internal study club meeting – where your dental team becomes its own study club – to educate and ensure every team member understands why you do what you do and how you communicate between your team and patients. Determine how to generate high-functioning huddles and team meetings. Sharpen your telephone skills with strategies that build rapport, prevent cancellation, and boost the schedule.
