Managing and Supervising Licensed Staff

Managing and Supervising Licensed Staff

Most dental practices employ additional licensed professionals other than their associates. These licensed dental professionals must be managed by a licensed dentist in a structured manner. 
 
Before hiring licensed staff members, it is vital to confirm that their license is current within the state of your practice. Also confirm that there are no limitations or revocations of the license. After it is determined that the staff member's license is current with the State and without restrictions, the supervising dentist should articulate professional expectations in writing.
 
Dentists should make sure their licensed staff members are capable of performing all procedures. If the staff member requires additional training or supervision is needed, it should be provided.
 
If the licensed staff member has continual problems providing safe, uncomplicated care, the supervising dentist should consider a plan of corrective action and outline expectations for improvement within a specific time frame.
 
Termination may and should be considered if the improvements requested are not accomplished or sustained by the licensed professional.
