Holladay Dental Office Earns Prestigious Management Certification

HOLLADAY, UTAH – A Holladay dental staff recently completed a special training program focused on team building and better management practices.

Kolbe Concept training is designed to help businesses better communicate and maximize employee potential. The training program focuses on employees’ natural strengths and how those skills can improve the production of the team.

“A strong team includes the right mix of instinctive talents in the right roles. Kolbe identifies this formula for success with an extraordinary level of accuracy and detail,” said Dr. Andrew Ericksen, who operates Holladay Dental Studio.

The Holladay dental office completed the training on Sept. 21. Each staff member took the test and was given a rating based on their strengths. Once the Holladay Dental Studio team established its strengths, the Kolbe training helped employees discover how to better communicate as a team.

The Kolbe Concept has been used by successful businesses across the world and has been cited in scientific studies and scholarly articles. The Kolbe creative process works in five stages: motivation, instincts, will, reason and conation. Conation allows workers to guide their creative instincts and become better team members.

Dr. Ericksen said since earning the certification, he has found strengths in staff members that would have otherwise gone unnoticed, which is a true benefit to his patients.

“Kolbe benefits patients because it not only helps our team communicate better with each other, but also with our patients,” Dr. Ericksen said. “By asking just a few questions, we can better relay information to our patients and get better treatment results.”

Holladay Dental Studio, 2160 E. 4500 S., Ste. 3, is a comprehensive dental practice located in a newly remodeled office with four operatories. The practice handles general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry, restorative dentistry, orthodontics and dental implant cases. The practice uses dental implants to replace individual missing teeth or to stabilize patients’ dentures. Holladay Dental Studio also treats patients with Invisalign, a special orthodontic method that uses clear aligners to straighten teeth instead of uncomfortable brackets and wires. Invisalign aligners are removable and virtually invisible.

Dr. Ericksen is a Holladay native who attended Olympus High School and later graduated from the University of Utah with an undergraduate degree in international studies. He earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from Creighton University in 2011 and took over at Holladay Dental Studio in 2012. Before acquiring Holladay Dental Studio, Dr. Ericksen worked at Premier Dental Care in West Valley City.

Dr. Ericksen also completed a dental implant residency at the Whitecap Institute, and he is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry and the American Academy of Implant Dentistry.
