In team sports like football, members of the team gather before and during competitions for a huddle. It’s during these huddles that a team makes a plan of action or changes a previous plan based on how things are going during the game. A dental team should be no different. Take the time each day to huddle up: make plans, review how things went yesterday and strategize for the remainder of the day and the coming month.
Amy Morgan, CEO of Pride Institute, has said, “The morning huddle is the only way a team can feel informed, focused, and productive. If you want to deliver the very best service and care to your patients in the most efficient manner, then you and your team have to plan for the day. There is no better solution for organizing chaos and confusion.”
The Daily Huddle Report, available in Dentrix G4 Productivity Pack 8 or newer, provides practices with a blueprint for their daily huddle sessions. The report shows a quick snapshot of how the practice did the day before on production, collections, case acceptance, new patients, and scheduling, and shows how the practice is progressing toward goals for today and the remainder of the month.
