More than a decade ago the Michigan Dental Association asked human resources consultant Toni Talbot to begin a series of columns in the MDA Journal dealing with common human resources situations that might be encountered in the average dental office. Talbot had been writing a similar human resources question-and-answer column for the Michigan Chamber of Commerce, and it was an easy jump for her to begin what became known as the Staff Matters® column in the Journal.

The 50 Most-Asked Human Resource Questions book is a collection of some of the most-relevant of the Staff Matters columns previously published in the MDA Journal. These are the types of questions received over and over again from MDA dental offices. All of them are based on actual situations. The MDA is pleased to bring this collection of columns into print in book form.
