Jason and Alan had the privilege of speaking with Dr. Gary DeWood from Spear Education about what we can expect during the Coronavirus crisis. Gary's message is one that we all could use right now and we're grateful for him giving us some time. Some of the things we discussed:

  • What do you do when you find yourself at the edge of the cliff and you don't know what to do?
  • This is a "government mandated" economic downturn which makes it interesting and scary
  • What should we be doing with our teams? What about the potential bill being passed?
  • Tax credits vs. tax "cut"
  • Do a 4 week "break even"
  • Own the fear/angst
  • "It's hard to make a plan when you don't know what the rules are"
  • Furlough vs. layoff
  • What should we expect with regard to infection control? Are "universal precautions" still universal?
  • testing and how many people actually have the virus?
  • hopeful information about this virus
  • what's a the story on the n95 mask
  • How is coronavirus like a horrible game of telephone

It's useful and it's low risk! Zirc has a process that they call ZOBE. That stands for Zirc’s Organizational Box of Efficiency. They send a big box full of their different instrument organization options to YOUR OFFICE. You get to try it all out. Snap the tops on the tubs. Put cassettes in your own sterilizer. Try out YOUR instruments in whatever cassette you like! Plus, Zirc sets you up with your own organizational expert like Kay to help you determine what’s right for you. Most importantly, the ZOBE process is FREE. It doesn't cost you anything to learn about Zirc's clinical systems. It's a perfect thing for you to do while you've got some down time! Plus, if you do a ZOBE consultation by April 17, 2020…you’ll be in the running for a $300 Amazon gift card! Find out more at dentalhacks.com/ZOBE!
