Module: Successful Appointment Transitions for New Dental Hygienists

Module Description: Successful Appointment Transitions for New Dental Hygienists
By Karen Davis, RDH, BSDH, RDHMP

Moving from the academic arena to private practice for dental hygienists new to the profession is exciting, yet potentially filled with numerous frustrations. This course is specifically designed to assist dental hygienists in making that transition smoothly and preventing some of the pitfalls that can happen early on such as running behind all day; feeling like you can’t get it all accomplished; worrying about whether or not you are being profitable; and concern about patients not accepting treatment recommendations! The profession of dental hygiene can be amazingly rewarding for those who set their standards high, and have a vision on how to succeed. This program will inspire and equip new dental hygienists on how to do just that.

Program Objectives for Participants:

• Identify necessary components to prepare for timely appointments
• Identify necessary components to prioritize the dental hygiene appointment
• Equip participants with practical tips to make a smooth transition
• Equip participants to make a profitable contribution to the practice
