One of the most common hiring mistakes a dental employer can make is to hire someone who does not have enough dental experience. Most often, this scenario occurs as a knee-jerk or panic reaction when someone in a dental employer’s office unexpectedly quits or has been let go. Take a Front Desk worker, for example. If a dental employer hires a generic front desk or receptionist worker with no dental field experience, they will have to make up that lack of dental experience in extra training, which can include: • Training to have a working knowledge of dental insurance, including claims, preparing claim forms and billing. • Training on dental terminology, procedures and diagnoses. • Training on dental computer software. • If the Front Desk worker has no medical experience, whatsoever, they will also need to be trained on HIPAA and other patient privacy laws. All of this extra training costs money. The Sasha Corporation averaged the results of 15 studies that determined average costs to replace just one eight dollars per hour employee, and that figure turned out to be $9,444.47 per turnover.
