For this month’s Partner Spotlight, we caught up with Drs.

It was author Eric Dickey who coined the phrase, early is on time, on time is late, and late is unacceptable. Despite our access to multiple devices with alarms and reminders, many of us still find ourselves dashing into work, uttering a breathless apology to our colleagues and patients – who notably arrived on time. Why does this continue to happen?
Today we shine the Support Centre Spotlight on Jordan Bauman, Director, Corporate Development, who talks with us about the impact that team sports as had in his life, and what not to do when stopped at the border.
An industry best-practice is to book your patients for their next dental appointment before they leave your clinic. Ideally, this is done through the dental hygienist in the operatory. This practice ensures that your patients are kept on track to receive optimal patient care. Establishing a culture of prioritizing pre-appointments can be achieved by reviewing pre-appointment numbers with all practice team members and holding staff accountable for pre-booking their patients.
We’re kicking off our first Partner Spotlight of the year with Newfoundland based dentist Dr. Greg Elliott. We sat down with Greg to discuss his journey into dentistry, his practice teams’ commitment to giving back, and the importance of getting to know patients in close-knit communities.
