Practice Management Stand-Alone Meeting

A one-day continuing education course held once a year independent of the AAOMS Annual Meeting and held in conjunction with the Beyond the Basics coding workshop and Advanced Protocols for Medical Emergencies Course for Assistants.

Join AAOMS for "Make Progress on Purpose," a workshop focused on improving relationships and communication to enhance the most valuable resources in your OMS practice – the people!

Studies have shown that relationships are crucial to achievement. It’s difficult to build an effective team in an environment where words can unknowingly prevent or sabotage strong work relationships. Speaker Dave Weber will show you how positive communication can improve the culture and climate of your practice.

When relationships and communication in the workplace are strong:

• Employees feel empowered and are inclined to work as a team, resulting in reduced absenteeism and staff turnover.
• Dentists feel confident referring patients to an OMS practice known for its supportive and effective team, solidifying a predictable referral base.
• Patients are more at ease and better able to trust in the patient-doctor relationship.

You will gain a fresh understanding of how to evaluate situations, choose positive words, and build solid relationships to increase productivity in the workplace. Make progress on purpose – the result is a better and more profitable practice.
