The Very Dental Podcast Network

When Missy Fryer and Mary Beth Bajornas joined us last year to talk about their new Dental Office Survival Manual it was one of the most downloaded episodes of the entire podcast! Well, they're back. And they're better than ever!

Mary Beth and Missy talked with Jason and Alan about how important it is to have a really well trained team and how it's an ongoing process. We discussed:

  • How hiring is becoming more of a struggle and it's getting WORSE rather than better
  • Strategies for hiring a great team member
  • Why employees and doctors get mad about each other and how to fix it (hint: it's about training)
  • Why delegating and allowing your team to work at the top of their training is best for everyone
  • Some innovative internal marketing strategies that involve the team

Everyone has those instruments that you’re glad to have, but maybe you don’t use them every day. Or maybe even every week. You paid a bunch for them and you want to take good care of them, but they don’t really fit in any particular regular set up or cassette. Our friends at Zirc have you covered!
