You and your staff are only human, and there will always be limits to the human memory. But what if you could compensate for those human limitations with something as simple as a daily checklist? A checklist can be a game changer when it comes to healthcare, helping to create incredible efficiency and stability in busy dental practices.


Create checklists for every practice area. Checklists can help keep staff members from forgetting steps that can cause costly mistakes. Excellent systems supported by checklists increase efficiency, decrease stress, and ensure practice success.


Don't forget to get every team member's input on practice checklists. Get feedback from all of your team members on practice checklists. They can provide valuable insights that will ensure that all of your lists are comprehensive.
