One of the greatest rewards I saw as dentist was in the growth and development of my staff. Finding ways to foster this development can be a challenge. Our weekly staff meetings always had time allotted for staff education. Finding materials that were applicable and geared directly to the staff was sometimes a challenge. Of course there are mandatory topics such as OSHA training, CPR and first aide recertification and HIPPA training. Other topics were discussed on an as needed basis. The availability of the online publication “Dental Assisting Digest” provides a valuable resource in staff development. It covers such topics as infection control, technology, and x-ray techniques.
