About this Wiki
This wiki is designed to document the jobs and processes involved in running the Thousand Smiles clinics. It is maintained by volunteers of Thousand Smiles.
A wiki is an online encyclopedia, one that you can edit and contribute to. For those of you who know how things are done at Thousand Smiles, your job is to log into the wiki, and write down what you know. Changes will be monitored for accuracy, and you will need to sign up for an account on the wiki in order to edit. For those of you who want to know how things work, the wiki is your resource for anything and everything about how clinics are run.
As things change, it is vital that we document these changes on the wiki. There is too much information about Thousand Smiles for any one person to know, and if we are to survive in the future, it is essential that the stakeholders of Thousand Smiles contribute what they know, so that it can be passed along to others.
