I’m Robyn Reis, Director of Hiring for All-Star Dental Academy. And today’s hiring tip is about a question that I get asked probably the most often, and that is, do I need a job description? A lot of doctors tell me that the assumption is that a dental assistant or a dental hygienist or a front office person in a dental practice just knows what they need to do.
in order to function in their position. And my question to you would be, doctor, would you offer treatment to a patient without having a treatment plan in place outlining the desired results you want? And I would like to think the resounding answer is no, but what we want to make sure is that you create this recipe for success for any…
role on your team. The best way somebody is going to know what to do in their job is to make sure that expectations are clear and understood in order for them to be able to do what they do best. So doctors and office managers and team members, if you’re out there recruiting for somebody to join your team, here’s a great opportunity for you all to get together, sit down,
and write out what does it mean to be a member of your team. Find out what those characteristics are, what skills are needed, what experience might be needed. And yes, there are universal responsibilities that a dental assistant will typically be able to perform and a hygienist will typically be able to perform.
But you wanna make sure that whoever joins your team, that they have a clear understanding of what would it take, what are the expectations for them to be a member of your team, not just any team. So join me on Dental All-Stars podcast for more information and more in-depth information on all things hiring.
