CELEBRATING THE RE-OPENING OF DENTISTRY
iRONMAN COMMUNICATION TIP
CREATE A POSITIVE EMOTIONAL EXPERIENCE FOR EVERYONE
There’s a new sheriff in town…named COVID-19!
Throughout history…Disruption has lead to creativity. Start thinking outside the box of how to interact, communicate, lead in person and virtually to set ourselves up for second half success.
First and foremost, our teams need to feel safe and supported when returning to the practice. The main goal is to control the aerosols created in dentistry. Keep in mind, every state and every office has varying guidelines.
I have done the resource footwork for you!
Click HERE for access to an extensive resource guide I have created that provides current (as of 5-18-20) information and links to sites for the latest interim guidelines.
I will continue to update this document as we transition through COVID-19.
HINT: Make www.OSAP.org your first stop.
A website for rapid and timely updates collaborated from multiple resources.
ARE YOU GETTING TO THE ROOT OF YOUR PROBLEM?
Think about the COVID-19 crisis as an opportunity to implement new processes that will improve our office efficiency and productivity.
A blank canvas that we can paint anything we want!
Reflect on what we have done in the past, and what needs to change moving forward. This is a list I developed for my Dental Crisis Communications CE to get you thinking about changes ahead.
WHERE IN THE WORLD IS LISA?
We are staying home in beautiful Park City, UT.
As many of you know, we moved here a year ago.
My husband and I both work from home so nothing unusual for us on the work front, however, neither of us has traveled for several months. I have to say, I really miss it.
Just as we have a blank slate to plan and start new processes in our dental practices, we have done the same with home improvement projects.
Here’s what we have accomplished in just a few months:
- ·Painted house trim
- Designed and partially planted back yard garden
- Hanging flowers, hummingbird feeder, and wind chimes
Normally these tasks would have taken the entire summer to complete.
But since we had time, a plan, and a list, we were able to make progress much faster.
As you collaborate with your dental team,make a list, strategically plan, focus on people’s strengths, and execute with efficiency.
Your practice will not only survive, you will thrive in the future.
Good Luck, I am routing for you!
