Dental practitioners and their staff will find this engaging story an easy and fun way to learn how to implement powerful, scientifically based project management principles into their practice. The story provides a relatable way to understand the approach presented, which encourages dentists and their staff to resist complicated management strategies and cost-cutting techniques and instead implement commonsense measures based on an understanding of the cause and effect that occurs when changes are made in a practice."
