I need structural/hierarchical advice for smaller dentistry clinics.
- 1-2 dentists (one of them the owner)
- 0-1 dental hygienists
- 1-3 dental assistants.
If you want to choose one setup of personnel I believe the data shows the most prevalent composition (in Denmark) is:
- 2 dentists
- 1 dental hygienist
- 3 dental assistants
By hierarchical/structural advice I mean who would manage whom? Would you make the owner the manager of all. Or would you have the owner manage the dentists and dental hygienist and just one dental assistant - who would then be managing the rest of the dental assistants?
What would be the breaking point between the models, i.e. when would you choose to structure it differently?
Looking forward to your answers
