For those of you saying well they should just not come in if they don't feel good, keep in mind, at a doctor's office that could mean potentially rescheduling 10 or more patients if they can't find someone to fill in, so you're inconveniencing a lot more people than just the boss when you pull this. If the same patient happens to be rescheduled a couple times, they might get fed up with that and find a different office (wouldn't you?). To me that's the biggest issue with staff not being able to commit to being at work routinely. To be sure, if you have a fever or are puking or blowing your nose every 2 minutes, do NOT come in, but surely people don't get sick with those kinds of things twice every month, and it's not cool to inconvenience like 10 people because of a mild/non contagious ailment.
People all over the country abuse their sick time. I've seen it, and I've seen people fired for it. Everybody gets sick. Everybody gets sick enough to where they have to miss work because of it. So, I do believe employees should have sick time, PTO time, how ever you want to do it. However, getting sick every month means you are either: 1) abusing the system, or 2) a drunk, or 3) have cancer or something. I've been sick off and on all winter with this damn cold, but since Thanksgiving I think I've missed a total of 8 hours.
Its five o'clock somewhere.
It's not tough to comprehend that you don't like to work many hours. 35 hours a week and then 1-3 doing business stuff? Wow, it's no wonder your business is not successful enough to provide a good benefits package to your employees. I've got a buddy whose a dentist here in GR, has his own practice, guy puts in 50+ hours on a slow week, also probably has one of the bigger practices in town now, it's not hard to figure out why.
It's hard to comprehend that a business owner would think they can only work 36-38 hours a week. Honestly, you need to ask some questions of yourself and your own work ethic before you question anyone else.

So instead of taking the necessary time off to get better, you continue to be sick and potentially expose others to it. Brilliant.
Just read this and started cracking up
Everyone I work with has had the sniffles all winter. We'd have to close up the place for a month. Its Michigan. We have a cold and soldier on. Not the flu. A little cold.
In your job, do you typically have your face within 2 feet of dozens of random customers each day, while sticking your fingers in their mouth?
My skills are quick like a ninja. Started at 7 today. Already did 4 crowns, 10 fillings, 2 root canals, 12 exams, 3 wisdom teeth extractions. I only work 35 hours/week, but I work efficiently and pack the schedule.
hoke- to alter or manipulate so as to give a deceptively or superficially improved quality or value.
And made how many posts on here, while your employees were busting their ass?
Oh yeah, and I don't believe for a second that you did all of that, along with all of your posting here, in 4 or 5 hours (depending on whatever the F time zone Arizona decided to be in during DST). That or I hope your patients get a good lawyer when they realized what shitty work you must have done so that you could hurry up and rush back to argue on the internet.

How about people who don't know the difference bewteen I, me, and myself? Do you get frustrated with them?
Speed has nothing to do with quality. If you were getting an operation done, would you rather have the surgeon who is slow, putzes around, and only does 2-3 a week, or the guy who is fast, efficient and works with an all-star team who does 2-3 a day with 4 times as many patients because of such a stellar reputation? With excellent repetition comes greater excellence. Only jelous losers associate slow speed with quality.

holy crap, no wonder you're only a dentist......

Not necessarily. If you have the right people in place you have most of the business running for you. I know many successful dentist, orthodontists and oral surgeons who have very large practices and work less than 40 hours a week.
35 hr work weeks as a business owner are for chumps or the very rich. I don't believe you fall into category #2
My family is more important than my job, so I make a respectable living, but prefer to spend the rest of my time with them. You can't get that time back. You only need so much money to be happy.
That person must have had terrible teeth.
meh, just called in for tomorrow.....got roundball flu apparently.

This guy is a douche.
I'd prefer a surgeon who spends most of his work day doing surgeries, consults, reading medical journals, etc, as opposed to arguing on an internet message board.
