Mobile phones are a great technology, but they have become a burden in many dental offices. The use of mobile phones during work hours is a disruption and can lead to many issues. These include slower employee production, an increase in overtime hours, a lack of quality work, and above all, the appearance that your office has no respect for patients’ time or presence.

This is why dental practices should have a mobile phone policy available for all staff members to acknowledge and sign. This will lead to no misunderstandings if and when an employee is reprimanded for using his or her phone while on the job.

Before your practice uses this form, be sure you update your office’s employee policy manual. Also, be sure that the policy does not interfere with any of your state or local laws.
