Welcome to Episode 27 of the re-launched Dental Boss Lady Leadership Academy Podcast with Dr. Terri Pukanich. In today's episode we will be discussing the pros and cons of having an Office Manager. I will share my first experience with an Office Manager and an alternative to that role that I think might work better in some cases. We will also talk about why you should define the role clearly before hiring and whether or not you really need an Office Manager in the first place. Keep in mind that having an Office Manager is not going to drop your stress: In order to change the way you feel, you have to change the way you think about your practice. All this and much more, up next.
