When Levin Group surveys orthodontists about their pain points, stress ranks second only to inadequate production (which, of course, contributes to stress). Even if you’re doing well in every other regard, daily stress and tension at the office can make work life very unpleasant for you and your staff.
Contrary to what you may think, staff conflict, missed appointments, parent complaints, and aggressive competitors do not cause the greatest amount of stress. The real culprit? Outdated, inefficient practice management systems.
