The article discusses how dental practitioners can make their practice more efficient. It mentions that a dental practice may face bottlenecks that slow down the practice and make it inefficient - the reason for this bottleneck could be the dental team or sometimes even the dentists themselves. Therefore, dentists should learn to delegate tasks to ease the burden on themselves; this could energize and motivate dental team members and could result in a more efficient office.
