Dental Team Building Ideas and Office Management Reminders for June 2024

Hello Friends,

As we approach the halfway mark of 2024, focusing on strategies that will boost productivity, profitability, happiness, and accuracy in your dental office is crucial.

Here are some practical tips, ideas, and reminders to help you and your team finish the year’s first half on a strong note.

Practice Management Reminders

Daily and Weekly Reports

Daily Reports

  • Review Procedures, Codes, Clinical Notes, Narratives & Attachments, Providers, and Adjustments

Ensure every detail is accurate to avoid issues later. Consistent daily reviews maintain high standards and prevent errors.

Weekly Reports

  • Outstanding Insurance Claims

Follow up on all claims over 30 days old to ensure timely payments.

  • Patient Balances Over 30 Days Old

Develop a strategy for collecting overdue balances.

  • Unscheduled Restorative Treatment Plans

Identify and reach out to patients with unscheduled or incomplete treatments.

  • Past-Due and Upcoming-Due Unscheduled Hygiene Patients

Keep your schedule full by contacting and staying in touch with these patients.

Insurance Renewal

Some insurance companies renew their maximum on June 1st. Identify unscheduled patients with renewed benefits and encourage them to schedule their hygiene wellness visits or restorative treatments.

Office Appearance Matters

Your office’s appearance significantly impacts both current and potential patients. With warmer weather, ensure your office’s exterior is clean, weed-free, and appealing. Clean windows and doors also contribute to a positive perception. Do you have curb appeal? Are you attracting positive attention?

Team Building and Appreciation

Celebrating Milestones

Do any of your employees have a work anniversary this month? Recognize and celebrate employee work anniversaries to foster a positive and appreciative work environment.

National Fresh Fruit and Vegetables Month

Encourage healthy snacking by bringing in fresh fruits and vegetables for your team.

Doughnut Day (June 7-8)

Balance healthy snacks with a sweet treat—bring in donuts for the team to enjoy.

Leadership Tips

Leadership is not something that is done to people, like fixing your teeth. Leadership is unlocking people’s potential to become better.” – Bill Bradley

Vision, Mission, and Core Values

Believe in a better future by having a clearly defined vision, mission, and core values. Ensure your team is aware and aligned with them.

Regular Communication

Frequent communication with your team is vital. While not everything can be shared, the more informed they are, the more they can contribute to achieving the vision, mission, and core values. Good communication also reduces gossip.

Transparency and Honesty

Maintain openness and honesty with your team. Transparency fosters trust and encourages feedback, which is essential for growth.

Support Your Team

Go out of your way to help your team succeed. Provide the tools and support they need to thrive.

Remember, a happy and motivated team is key to providing exceptional care, so don’t overlook the importance of regular training and team-building activities.
