Running a practice can be stressful with all of the responsibilities that go with it. Your staff is looking for you to lead and make decisions by doing everything necessary to keep the practice going and growing. It seems like there’s never 1 more thing to do, there’s always 10 more things to do. Here are 3 ways to reduce stress and increase your procedural confidence at the same time.
1. Invest in yourself and your team.
Get out of your bubble and attend live CE events to learn from others and become acquainted with other clinicians.
You have a lot in common with other clinicians – more than you think and probably don’t compete for the exact same patients. There is no substitute to the increased knowledge gained from live training.
2. Use high quality products that have been proven.
Komet rotary instruments have been around for more than 95 years and are the #1 selling bur around the world. These products have been tested in a laboratory and in the real world and you know they’re going to work. If you’re not sure about a product, don’t just go online and read a review that may or may not be legit. Asking a colleague might sound old school, but people are less likely to exaggerate or be dishonest in person.
3. Get to know the sales reps for the products you depend on day in and day out.
There are some companies that have sales reps that just ‘take orders’. But a handful of premium companies invest in their sales team because clinicians depend on useful information and scientific research to ensure they are using the right product for the right procedure. Komet sales reps only sell rotary instruments – so they know correct product application, can make procedure-specific recommendations based on what they’ve learned from product testing and doctor testimonials, and so much more. Their information is both free and priceless at the same time.
There’s a lot that goes into being successful, but after you’ve been in practice long enough, you learn to live with the ups and downs that go with running a business. Reducing stress and Increasing your confidence should be at the top of your list to stay healthy, happy and productive in the future.
