A Dental Office Manager keeps the dental practice running smoothly and efficiently. If you’re the type who likes to run the show, keeping people and supplies organized, you’ll excel in this position.
Keen attention to detail is vital to the role of Dental Office Manager. Overseeing the schedule for employees (assigning workers to shifts and approving time off) as well as patient follow-up visits (including reminder calls) requires tremendous organization. Other supervisory duties include hiring and managing part-time employees, including contract workers like collection, cleaning, and outdoor maintenance (lawn mowing and snow removal) personnel.
Put your business acumen to work as you manage the monthly accounts payable and receivable (bills to pay and money that comes in). Tracking this financial information provides data necessary for making recommendations on reducing expenditures through inventory control.
Other clerical duties of the Dental Office Manager include monitoring office supplies (and reordering when necessary), along with coordinating payroll. Whether payroll is processed in-house or through an agency, it’s up to you to make sure it’s right. You also ensure that all taxes (city, state, and federal) are paid and reported accurately. This is essential to overall business performance.
Keeping supplies on the shelf, patients in the chair, and paychecks coming regularly are your main priorities in this position. To complete these tasks, you use your excellent communication skills. If you do it all with a smile, you’re sure to see employees, Supervisors, and patients smiling back.
