Dental Manager Network Society™

The Dental Manager Network Society™ association provides a networking, mentorship, and educational forum to support the professional needs of dental managers.


Robyn Stevens was our speaker at our 6/21/18 meeting. She provided great information on Feng Shui - and how we can implement it in our personal as well as work lives to reduce stress. 

Some highlights included:

  • Chi is the energy you can feel and it needs to flow through your home and within your office. 
  • It's not where you live so much as it is how you live in your space.
  • Take an outsider's view of how your space is arranged and determine if changes need to be made. Such as:
    • Do you have old magazines that are stacked, which you will never read? - Recycle them.  
    • Do you have dead plants that have no chance of surviving? - Throw away and replace with live plants.
    • What is the feel of your office when a patient walks in?  Pleasant, happy, relaxing?  Or, is it tense, staff's attention focused on the phones rather than with the patient, or a loud TV program is playing?  
    • What signs do you have posted in your office - are they inviting or not?   Examples: No shows $50 charge.  Must present insurance card or not be seen
