Dental assistants face a variety of challenges in their job. How those challenges are met can affect the professional and personal lives of these valuable team members. In this course, dental assistants will learn how to identify the issues that “get under their skin” and how to deal with them.
We’ll explore the typical dental assistant’s four main job-related concerns (money, respect, teamwork and attitude) and identify steps to embracing one’s own potential and leadership mindset. Additionally, dental assistants will learn what they can do to not only enhance their own careers, but also the bottom line of the business.
- Identify on-the-job challenges that could affect performance and happiness
- Understand the steps that can be taken to minimize the effects of those challenges
- Explore how to have a more productive and fulfilling career as a dental assistant
