Dental Front Desk Organization & Efficiency
Dental front desk organization improves your mood. And not just your productivity and efficiency. Too much clutter and chaos on your desktop can leave you feeling blue. Desk clutter can contribute to feelings of stress and anxiety and even bring on feelings of unnecessary guilt.
Make the Time!
Take the time to clean up your desk. Reorganize your workspace and rejuvenate yourself. You may find increased energy and enthusiasm for your day! What have you got to lose? Let’s get you started! But where do we begin?
Three Tray System
Use a 3-tray system on your desk. The tiered trays work great! The top basket should be designated as your “in-box”. The middle basket you can set as your “in-process” space. I recommend prioritizing papers as you move them from your “in-box” to your “in process” basket.
Try to Handle a Document Just Once!
However, you want to handle papers as few times as possible. In fact, try to handle paper as you pick it up. But some things you may need to come back to. Then the bottom basket can be “out-going” or “completed” items waiting to be filed and passed on.
Keep Items Off the Desk
Keep items off the desk when possible. The fewer office supplies you keep on your desk, the better. Keep pens in your drawer. You don’t need a whole bucket load of pens on your desk. How many can you really use at once? Keep a few pens that you really enjoy using in your drawer. And try not to let them pile up in there!
Integrate Weekly Management Systems
Now that you are all cleaned up, let’s add stronger business systems! Or reintroduce them if they’ve slipped away. And it’s so easy to do.
The day can get so busy. And one day can truly roll into another. Then before you know it, it is the beginning of a whole new month.
