How to Form Staff
You’ve finally made the decision to start your own dental care! It’s been a long process of research, planning and preparation. Now it’s time for you to choose your staff. You have two options: hire an independent contractor or hire employees. Complete Dental Care of Fishers will discuss how to form staff for your private practice. There are some key points that you need to consider before hiring someone, so take a moment and read over this article before making any decisions on who will be working with you!
The first thing to consider is the legalities of forming staff. For example, can you hire independent contractors or will you need to make them employees? Do they require a different type of insurance than what your business already offers?
It’s important to have everyone on board with this decision too. Your current employees are going to want some input when it comes time for hiring new people and that makes sense! It also shows how much trust there is in their relationship with each other. When hiring an employee instead of an independent contractor, you have certain rights over their employment depending on the state where your office resides. Make sure everything is set up before moving forward so no one gets surprised later down the road! If possible, get yourself familiarized with HR laws in your state or hire an HR consultant to do it for you.
If hiring employees, then the next step is setting up their benefits and wages. Talk with them about what they need in terms of insurance coverage, vacation time and sick days (if applicable).
As part of forming staff, if you plan on working with patients directly, make sure everyone understands how this works! You should have a meeting to discuss patient expectations as well as your employee’s role within the office. This will help prevent any misunderstandings down the road which can lead to issues like lawsuits against either party involved. If anyone has trouble understanding what needs done during direct patient care times, don’t be afraid to go over these things multiple times until everyone is satisfied.
