Improve Teamwork

Throughout the consultation period, we will work with the doctor to be an inspiring, motivating leader of his/her team and an efficient & effective manager of people.

Teamwork is the foundation of any successful dental practice. The quality of teamwork in your office can dramatically impact your practice’s productivity. Even if you have strong staff in place, if each staff member is doing their own thing with little coordinated effort, then productivity will be limited.

Signs of poor teamwork can include one or more of the following:

  • Lack of coordinated effort toward a common goal, everyone does their own thing

  • Drama, office gossip and/or cliques among your staff

  • Seemingly unmotivated and uninspired staff

  • Inconsistent productivity from day to day

  • Important tasks perpetually fall through the cracks and are left undone

  • Dentist's frustration with overall staff performance

  • Staff showing low initiative, wasting time or needing to be told what to do


Crucial to good teamwork is communication.  Your practice’s performance will be limited by your team’s ability and willingness to communicate with each other in a professional, positive manner. Communication can be constructive, empowering and action-oriented.  Lack of communication often results in sarcasm, negative body language, unresolved staff conflict, or worse, unwanted staff turnover. 

At The Ledbetter Group we know that for our consulting to work we must win the staff over. Then, we can coach them to perform as an effective team and incentivize them to go the extra mile for the practice and each other.
