Does this sound familiar:
“We’ve had a lot of cancellations and I don’t want to pay my hygienist during down time”
Some of you may lean towards doing this. In fact, the hygienist may HATE this so your hygienist has to look or act busy so you won't deduct their pay.
Do NOT do this anymore! Your hygienist AND you (the practice owner) deserve a full schedule always.
In this episode Sandy Pardue tells us exactly how to do this. Remember, hygienists want to see patients and they want a full schedule! It’s the practice that doesn’t put enough pressure, enough urgency, on the front office to fill that schedule.
