As a dental hygienist myself I know how important it is to empower hygienists to take on an expanded role in the dental office and pride themselves on the ability to identify and discuss treatment opportunities is crucial to the success of integrating orthodontics into your general dental practice.
Do all of your team members have straight teeth?
If not, it might be time to make them an advocate for the treatment you want to sell. If any of your team members could benefit from short term ortho, consider investing in their smile to get patients interested in treatment.
If you’re looking for patients who have opportunities for esthetic changes, the best place to start is in the group of patients that you already have. In this post, I discuss a common blind spot that may be preventing you from getting patients to “Say yes.”
We all get caught up every once in a while in the business of running a dental practice. It’s easy to notice things that you wish were improved when it comes to how your team members work, but far more difficult to remember and work to change them.
“You are kidding, RIGHT??? Now I Have To Add WHAT Into The Hygiene Visit?”
Do you ever cringe when the dentist/owner announces she is going to an educational workshop to learn a new technique or procedure? Let’s be honest: you may get anxious not because you are against professional development or an enhanced service mix, but because you think, “Now what else am I going to be told to cram into a hygiene appointment?”
