Time Management Techniques to Implement in Your Dental Office

Alarm clockTime management can be tough to learn and manage, especially as a busy dentist trying to run a successful practice. Even if you start your day off with a list of things you need to, it’s easy to watch that list fall apart as emergencies arise and interruptions occur. The best thing to learn is proper time management techniques.

Tips on Time Management

The three best ways to better manage your time in your dental office are:

  • Schedule – When learning to properly schedule, start small. Schedule for the hour or the afternoon. Block this time for a specific task and be clear about what you’d like the outcome to be. A good rule of thumb is to make a list with the most important or difficult items at the top. The items will become easier and easier to cross off the list, increasing motivation!
  • Commitment – As you’re working through your list, it’s common for your mind to wander or to think of other things you need to be doing. But no matter what, stick with the plan and the stress will soon begin to subside.
  • Follow-Through – Sticking with your plan and proving to yourself that you can follow through will not only boost your motivation but will also improve the way your dental practice runs. Another added bonus is that you’ll be setting a great example for your staff, and their time management skills will improve as well!
