When a person breaks a tooth it may not be hurting right now but it is an emergency to them whether you have time on the appointment book or not. You need to be ready to work hard everyday and be able to leave your problems at home, or wait until lunch to talk with the other employees. Be a good listener, and be patient. You will have the time to finish what you are doing when the patient get finished talking. Have a smile on your face and be ready to work with the patients that call the office. You may have to eat lunch at your desk like I do but my job means the world to me because I love the patients that come to us but it will be worth it. Always pay the bills on time it is someone else credit you are keeping not yours. Most of all have FUN everyday if you do not enjoy working from the time you walk through the door you do not want this job.
