Do you find that patients often undervalue the services provided during a comprehensive exam or dental hygiene visit? Are you challenged with time management when trying to collect the essential data needed to prepare a comprehensive treatment plan? You are not alone, and we can help you!

This practical “how-to” program will increase your patient’s perceived value of their dental visit while ensuring the inclusion of Clinical Screening Investigations to consistently deliver exceptional patient care. Each of the programs delivers a step by step protocol for data collection and case presentation from the dental chair for an existing patient of record.

Part II of You are the Expert features techniques and verbal skills specifically designed to address patient concerns with restorative aesthetic treatment considerations. While applicable to all team members, those sitting chairside will learn to comfortably discuss treatment options, handle insurance questions and build value for comprehensive care. These verbal skills are essential to all of today’s Dental Professionals.

Each of these programs stand alone based on their content. The participants of all three courses will notice how the data builds from one screening to the next providing the clinician with a ‘big picture’ in only a few short minutes. Experience the benefits of adding this new dimension to your clinical standards by including these five Clinical Screening Investigations for your patients. Those benefits include: fewer cancellations, increased referrals, greater patient value and increased case acceptance, just to name a few.

Course Objectives:
* Equip the clinician with a consistent reproducible screening protocol for restorative and aesthetic needs.
* Utilize the intra oral camera with good time management at each visit to reinforce or initiate restorative / aesthetic conversations
* Learn verbal skills to assist with case presentation and comfortably handle patient objections to treatment
