Researcher Daniel Goleman studied 3,000 executives over the course of three years to develop a model of six leadership styles. The original report was published by Harvard Business Review (registration required) but many blogs have referenced his work since the original was published in 2000.
The six styles Goleman identified are:
Coercive leaders demand immediate obedience. Do what I tell you.
Pace-setting leaders expect excellence and self-direction. Do as I do, now.
Authoritative leaders move people towards a vision. Come with me.
Affiliative leaders value and create emotional bonds and harmony. People come first.
Democratic leaders build consensus through participation and collaboration. What do you think?
Coaching leaders will develop people, allowing them to try different approaches in an open way. Try it.
If you’d like to increase your leadership skills, no matter what your style, please join us at the ADA 28th New Dentist Conference taking place in Kansas City, Missouri July 17-19, 2014 at Sheraton Kansas City, Crown Center (mark your calendar). In addition to a full day of leadership development, the Conference includes:

The American Dental Association is proud to be one of the founding members of the Ad Council’s Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives. As part of its successful Kids’ Healthy Mouths campaign, the Partnership recently released Toothsavers, a new, free mobile gaming app. This interactive game encourages kids to save friendly fairy tale characters from the evil, cavity-creating sorceress who cast a wicked, tooth-rotting spell on the kingdom. The goal of the game is to motivate children to save their own teeth by brushing their teeth two minutes, twice a day.

On occasion, you may wish to terminate a contract that you feel is not working for you. In many cases, it would be best to fulfill your obligations under the contract and then elect not to renew it at the end of the contract term. But in some cases, you may decide that you would like to get out of the contract before the end date.
By the time you’ve navigated your way through the pages of a contract you might have given yourself a headache. It’s important you understand what you’re signing. But it’s also important to understand there is help available.
The ADA Contract Analysis Service provides members with information about a proposed contract to make it easier to analyze its terms. The service analyzes:
dental provider contracts with third party payers
dental management service organization contracts
contracts that offer dental school students scholarships or loans in exchange for a commitment for future employment
The analysis is not a substitute for legal advice.
Utilize this free ADA member benefit by submitting an unsigned copy of the contract and a request for analysis to your state dental society.
The article includes suggestions for safety in the home — one suggestion is to program the poison control number (800.222.1222) into your phone’s contact list. The article also includes suggestions for keeping medicine from being abused, including keeping track of the amount of medicine that should be in a bottle.

Yesterday we posted about the ADA Foundation Bud Tarrson Dental School Student Community Leadership Award which recognizes dental student outreach to vulnerable communities within the U.S.
The ADA Foundation also recognizes one dental school student program each year for demonstrating excellence in providing services to underserved populations outside of the U.S. through the Dr. Thomas J. Zwemer Award. Established in 2012, the Zwemer Award provides $5,000 to one dental school on behalf of the students’ winning outreach program.
The ADA Foundation increased the number of awards from one to six after a gift from ADA Business Resources Inc. (ADABEI).
Students at accredited dental schools across the U.S. submitted nomination materials in the fall of 2013. The applications are reviewed and scored, and the winners are selected, by ADA Foundation volunteer leadership with the final decision authority resting with the ADA Foundation Board.
Congratulations to these hardworking dental students for making a difference!

The peer review system is a voluntary process for resolving disputes between a patient and a dentist outside of a legal venue or the “court of public opinion.” The ADA promotes peer review as an option to the public at MouthHealthy.org, and dentists may encourage dissatisfied patients to consider initiating the process as a way of settling a disagreement.
