Does Your Dental Staff Need a Bonding Retreat?

Posted by on Thursday, May 8th, 2014

You should always strive to have the best people working for you, but that doesn’t mean your top-notch staff won’t face the occasional bout of burnout. When that happens, you might consider a company retreat to reboot, refresh, and realign your staff.
