All dental practices face challenges, and running one is the biggest challenge of all. Of course, our primary concern is our patients’ oral health, but we also need to be thinking about managing our team, staying up-to-date on changes in the dental profession, and dealing with the latest changes and recommendations concerning the COVID pandemic. It is a lot for anybody to do, and it shines a light on the challenges facing every dental practice as we begin 2021. For dental practices in the United States to succeed, we must provide top-notch care to our patients. That means not letting the issues we face get in the way of optimizing the patient experience to ensure that our patients stay happy and return.
