The ADA Center for Professional Success recommended some ways for new dentists to pick up practice management skills from the comfort of their own office or home, and earn continuing education credits at the same time.
- Improve your own organization: Use the SMART goal process to learn to set organizational objectives to help improve the efficiency of your office. Evaluate your external and internal strengths and obstacles that factor in your goal attainment. Develop new habits and processes that will result in a smoother, more efficient work environment each and every day. It’s free for ADA members. To learn more, click here.
- Interested in peer review? Peer review is a way to address the issues of quality oral health care for our patients in a self-regulating manner. It is a dispute resolution program that is based on our ethical obligations as dentists to provide our patients with the best care possible in each situation. This course outlines the administrative aspects, the differences among different systems and an overall look at how to best structure a system that is confidential, consistent and easily accessible. It is free for ADA members. To learn more, click here.
