For dental office managers: 3 spring cleaning tips

I’m not talking about Windex and Lysol! Every spring, it feels like I need to do something different in the office. It’s time to rid myself of clutter and review my notes on my yearly goals. Allow me to share my tips with you:

1. Go through those journals! My office is full of industry journals some read and some flipped through. I start out with good intentions of reading every article but there are just not enough hours in the day! The good articles are torn out and read and the rest of the magazine goes. I read the articles right then, not just put them away for later. I’ll just find them again next year if I do that.

2. Set those goals! We set goals for ourselves here at AADOM. Every team member has his or her goals, plus we have an overall set for the organization. I pull out those goals and pay close attention to the ones which I haven’t started yet. Are they truly attainable or was I on a “goal high” when I set it? I also congratulate myself and the team on the projects that have significant progress. Positive reinforcement is the name of the game!

3. Go through the piles. Could you do away with some of the paper piles in your office? I know that paperless doesn’t always mean paper-free. I’m sure that you have documents that you are holding onto “just in case.” Put them in a file titled “just in case” and move them off your desk!

I hope that this season brings you productivity and success the clutter-free way!
