`"$Benefits and payment."`
Every day is an adventure. You have the ability to make the best out of your day and your team when working as a team player. A dental office is the best place to be in. Helping people and having the ability to coordinate health professionals to achieve the highest standards of care is priceless. Always push for more, you will be happy you did. People can do great things when incentivated properly. Even the patients !!! Always have daily, weekly and monthly goals. Remember in the daily huddle what they are, and set the right mind set to achieve them as a team. Health is not an insurance or economical option. Patients need to be guided in what is the best option for them. We tend to confuse with different treatments plans and no clear financial options.

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.

Dental Office Manager in Rochester:
`"$Only you can advance your own career."`
Advance yourself and educate yourself early on. Find a mentor in the same size office and same scenario as you to learn more as your doctors won't typically be able to help you with questions.
