It was bound to happen. With Twitter, Facebook and other social networking sites gaining such incredible popularity and with the prevalence of smartphones, we’ve had out first calls from dentists asking if we can add verbiage to their policy & procedures manuals to specifically outlaw tweets, texting and facebooking during work. You might think that this is unnecessary and simple common sense, but then you’d probably be the next “shocked” dentist or office manager to call and report this happening. Cell phones should be be off and stored with employees’ personal belongings during work hours and only turned on during breaks and meal periods. Period. End of discussion.
