You Know the Drill . . .Tips by Brittany Young

 Brittany Young is the practice manager at Weissburg Endodontics in Laurel, Maryland. She started as a dental assistant but quickly learned that she loves office management. Brittany is committed to changing the public’s perception that visiting a dentist is optional, and that every dental office is the same. She believes that when practices find their niche and “brand” themselves, they will succeed in building a solid business, not just a practice. Making her dental practice run as efficiently as possible is something Brittany enjoys, and on workdays she spends time strolling around the office to ensure everyone is staying on task, and having fun! She is a member of the American Association of Dental Office Managers, and is currently pursuing an associate degree in business management. In her free time Brittany loves to travel and spend time outdoors with her family.
