Creating the Ultimate Doctor-Hygiene Patient Exam

July 30, 2020
8:30 am – 11:30 am
  • Karen Davis, RDH, BSDH

Learn how to prevent the “I’ll give you a call” response from patients following treatment recommendations in the dental hygiene appointment. Capitalize on that magical 5 to 7 minute exam, using continuity between the dental hygienist and dentist, without running everyone’s schedules behind. Strategic screenings provide the pathway for comprehensive diagnosis and treatment enrollment. Learn the art of prioritization and the value of a “triangle of communication” between the dentist, dental hygienist and the patient.

Learning Objectives:
1) Distinguish screenings that can save lives and save smiles.
2) Recognize strategies to overcome common objections to treatment recommendations.
3) Appraise technologies to work smarter, not harder.
