Outta Steam? Build Back the Team!

Presented by Dr. Brad Guyton and Ms. Kelli Clifton Ogunsanya

Join us live, in-person with your dental teams for best practices in recruitment, development and retention of “right-fit” people for your dental team. We will dive into the legal and cultural aspects of how to hire and fire, motivate and mentor, and “train so they remain.” We also will focus on the critical components of building a high-performing team and culture. This course is designed for all team members with a focus for dentists and office managers.

After attending this course, the participant will be able to:

  • Define mission-critical techniques for attraction, development and retention of the best candidates and employees.
  • Discover the legal dos and don'ts in building back your team.
  • List the advantages and attributes of a dental practice focused on mentorship and training.
  • Discuss the core essentials of a high-performing team.
  • Describe the critical attributes and what to look for in new employees.
  • Share best practices of what works in today’s very tight labor market.

For your convenience, we have free parking in two retail garages within the Beauvallon building (east-facing side). Both garages are accessed from Lincoln Street between 9th and 10th Avenues. Parking in these garages is available on a first-come, first-served basis. **If you are attending a large course/event at the MWDI, we recommend arriving early in case the garages fill and alternative parking must be secured. Be aware - the garages come up quickly after you cross 9th Avenue and both have left lane entrances. All numbered spaces within both retail parking garages (without "Reserved" signs) are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Do not park in any spaces with a red sign that says "Matrix" or “KCNC.” Do not park in the residential parking. Residential garages are at the back of the retail garages. The north and south garages are not connected. Both have open parking available.
