How To Cope With Noise In The Dentist Office

– Rebecca K. Horton, RDA
If your job involves talking on the phone, then you already know how annoying it is to have a noisy environment. Your stress goes way up.

1.2 Exhaustion ensues.
Effectiveness plummets. You run the risk of making people dislike you. Then you need a psychiatrist. And need meds. Your life is ruined! Or at least your day.
Very few of us have the privilege of a private office and even if we do, printers, fans, and outside noises will infringe.
If you’re like me, I work in an open dental office setting, subject to all the noise of the drills, suction, conversations, children playing (crying), doorbells ringing and miscellaneous machines such as vacuum former, vacuum cleaner, etc. My job demands that I be polite and charming.
I do not want to offend anyone. My nerves need to be real good.
