DA in Avon Lake, Ohio

I am a DA working a 30 hr. work week. The dentist I work for has 1 DA, 1 EFDA, and 2 HYG. Last week we had several cancellations and I was told not to come in until after lunch. Is this typical behavior in today's dental offices?

Unfortunately, yes. When production is low, it is a normal for hours to be cut back or even down-size staff. Some dental offices have gone from opening 5 days a week to 4 or even 3 days a week (in some cases) because business is slow. Private practices do this all the time.

Unfortunately, yes. if production is low, it is normal for dental offices to cut back hours or down-size staff. In a lot of areas, business is slow. Some offices have gone for opening 5 or 6 days a week to 4 or even 3 days a week (in some cases). Private practices do this all the time.
