Prerequisites: None
You are the Expert: PART III
Using C.S.I. (Clinical Screening Investigations) For Exceptional Patient Care

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 III of You are the Expert singles out the periodontal screening. While a comprehensive periodontal charting should be completed once per year, how often and in what way should our patients be screened for periodontal disease and its complications? This program outlines a step by step protocol for a brief periodontal assessment including tissue response and the verbal skills to effectively communicate the importance of this screening and the significance of the results.

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 periodontal disease activity.
*Utilize the intra oral camera with good time management at each visit to demonstrate disease activity.
*Learn verbal skills to begin to transition patients from continuing care to the appropriate periodontal treatment
