What does your team focus on?

Posted on Updated on

Dr Mark HassedOver the past 6 years I’ve been fortunate to have worked as a locum dentist in a lot of offices. Some were easy and highly productive and some were difficult and frustratingly unproductive.

Why the difference? In a word the answer is “focus”.

Teams that focus on tasks and procedures and treat the dentist like a cog in the machine are frustrating and unproductive to work with. The dentist is constantly hitting road blocks and chasing after team members to ask for things.

Teams that focus on the dentist and assisting him or her are a pleasure to work with and make you highly productive. The team watch you and give constant support.

What does your team focus on? If you’re feeling tired and beaten up at the end of the day I can tell you for sure that your team are focussing on tasks and procedures.

    Dear Mark,

    Finally bought a Canon Powershot S120 WiFi camera. Can’t find the settings that you gave us at the Melbourne course. Could you please send the settings so that we can get it up & running?

    Hope this finds you well. Kind regards, Neil

      Hi Neil
      Set the camera on Macro and make sure to zoom so that it moves you back away from the person which gives the flash a chance to light up the whole area.
