Mea culpa. I was wrong!

Posted on Updated on

Dr Mark HassedA while ago I published a blog post about becoming more efficient and how people often ask me what is the one big thing they can do to improve.

I said that there is not one big thing, but rather a whole lot of little things.

Well, that is not exactly correct.

If you are looking to boost your productivity there is one thing you can do that will boost your productivity more than anything else.

That thing is to master 6-handed dentistry.

Please let me tell you a personal story. Some years ago a participant in a chat line I subscribed to asked a question about 6-handed dentistry. At that time I thought that I had productivity pretty well mastered and replied that I did not see how working 6-handed would improve things. But, being an inquisitive person, I decided to give it a go anyway.

It was a revelation.

6-handed dentistry cut my treatment times by around 40%. I could scarcely believe what my watch was telling me. Fillings that used to take 40 minutes were now done in 25.

So, the bottom line is this. If you value your personal time and want to become more productive then you must learn and master 6-handed dentistry.

Toni recently joined the team at The Relaxed Dentist and she is an expert in 6-handed dentistry.

If you want to get 6-handed dentistry running in your office then spending a day or two with Toni could be the best investment you have ever made.

Don’t sit on the fence any longer.

Once you try 6-handed dentistry you will wonder why you ever waited.

    Mark has got me onto this.

    We’re not working on every appointment yet 6 handed , we are mastering our skills on a few.

    Now I’m one of those ” finish the job & finish of properly ” dentists .. I have run chronocslly late for 15 years and in the last ten years, I run to time about 70 % of the time .

    But the other day just as I had finished a six handed molar endo, thre patient had exited & i was checking notes before charging out the treatment .. My next nurse told me something I don’T think I have heard before

    Malcolm you’re running 20 minutes ahead of schedule

    I can tell you, that feels damn good !
