A Simple Math Solution for a High Performing Team

by Dr. Ron Arndt

A Simple Math Solution for a High Performing Dental TeamEveryone in the dental practice must work as a “team”, with each team member contributing their skills and abilities to the overall success of the practice.

I blend my clinical, executive and coaching experience as THE DENTAL COACH©, and have learned a thing or two in my day. Teams progress through several stages before they reach the stage of high performance and achieve true synergy. It has been proven that synergistic teams achieve more than individuals working alone.

2 + 2 can truly = 5.

When staff members work as a team, they:

  • support one another
  • commit to acting responsibly and honestly toward one another
  • find ways to solve problems more quickly

Leaders who value their teams must manage the individual relationships, as well as the group process. They must:

  • support brainstorming sessions
  • help foster new ideas
  • host problem solving sessions

In turn, team members willingly set high standards and create self-sustaining systems to exceed patient satisfaction.

What does 2 + 2 equal in your office? Is your office truly working as a team?
