Staffing Up
Today's job market is different: COVID-19 has forever raised the bar on recruiting and retaining good people.
As Scheduling Institute founder and CEO Jay Geier explains, if dentists expect to attract and keep the level
of talent they need to run a profitable and growing practice, they'll need to step up their people game.
66 | KEEP YOUR STORY STRAIGHT
When it comes to employee separations, firings are, by far, the
riskiest. HR expert Paul Edwards explains how practice owners
can help control the narrative of employee termination through
preventive action, risk assessment, accurate communication
and more.
72 | PLAY YOUR CARDS RIGHT
Overhead is a fact of life for dentists-lab bills, utilities, supplies
and repair costs all add up. Some dentists, including Dr. Jason
Annan, have been leveraging such overhead costs to earn
hundreds of thousands of credit card points, then converting
the points into truly valuable assets. This Townie shares some
of his top tips and advice so readers can parlay their own bills
into bonus miles and other benefits.
