So what makes a good dentist or dental technician? Some of the obvious traits include having extensive technical and anatomical knowledge, being good at problem-solving, and being a great leader. But here are key traits that we think are even more important…
A pleasant and agreeable personality can be the difference between patient loss and retention.
It takes confidence to work as a dentist or dental professional, but your ego should be left at the door. Because the way you interact with your clients will be key to your success.
Communication is a vital tool if you want to help your clients improve their dental health and hygiene. Explaining complex procedures requires patience, and this means you have to be able to understand things from their perspective.
Patience, empathy, good verbal and non-verbal communication, and a friendly and gentle approach are a must if you want to make a difference.
