Helpful Hint of the Month - November 

There are many important things dental assistants must know to excel at their careers.

Here are three professional development tips to help you stand out as a leader in your field: 

  • One of the most valuable traits a dental assistant can have is flexibility. Being flexible will help the team environment, setting the tone for your practice.
  • The second trait that is important for a dental assistant to have is self-motivation. Self- motivated people notice what needs to be done, doing it without being asked.
  • The third trait that a dental assistant needs is having initiative. Meaning that you have initiative to complete a task without constant supervision.

 Of course it takes a good attitude to gain these traits and to model them.  An excellent book for other tips for lessons in leadership is “The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People”, by    Stephen R. Covey.
