Have you ever watched a professional basketball team? They move up and down the court as if they are one entity, anticipating every movement, every play, even every failed attempt.
Of course, professional basketball teams are only one example. Watch any professional team and it is easy to see that each member is committed to working with the others to accomplish the goal of winning.
A good team works tirelessly to create and keep critical synchronization. It doesn’t just happen.
If one team member is out with an injury or is not in sync with the rest of the team, the entire dynamic is changed. The team becomes inefficient and does not produce the desired results.
Is this so different from the practice of dentistry? A productive and efficient team is a healthy one. If one of the team members is forced to sit on the bench or has to reduce his/her playing time because of health concerns, how much does that effect the team? Every member of your dental team has a specific purpose and is incredibly important.
Professional sports teams mandate healthy routines for their players to ensure the highest level of performance. Creating a healthy environment for your team by encourage healthy eating, exercise, ergonomic education and so forth will produce a stronger and more productive team.
And who doesn’t want to be part of a strong and productive team?
