Episode : #702: Calibrate New Docs and Hygienists Like a Boss

Podcast Description

Tiff and Dana are talking about a shift they’re seeing in a lot of practices these days: Practices adding providers! The best way to bring on new folks means making sure everyone is on the page, and Tiff and Dana dive into proper calibration for both new doctors and new hygienists.

On the hygienist side (which you need to add if you’re bringing on new docs), consider scheduling regular meetings and getting perio protocols in place. For new doctors, establish those monthly calibrations and how exam flow will work.

The most important note is having systems in place to allow new hires to come on as seamlessly as possible.
