  1. It’s important to do a task analysis to see what tasks can be delegated to other team members so that you as a dentist have more time for your patients.

    One point that was crucial to me was “Make sure to give clear and detailed instructions…and trust that they’ll be able to do the task delegated to them”. So true! I have to implement this more instead of expecting the person to ‘just know’. Thanks.

      Thank you for your response Dr. Nelson!

      Yes, giving clear and detailed instructions, allowing others to be creative and trusting that they will be able to do the delegated tasks is key! Instructions ensure the desired or better results. Team members know what is expected and can work toward the goal. In addition, when your team knows that you are confident in their ability, they will consistently perform.
