Topic:  Communicating with Confidence
Presenter:  Lisa Mayo RDH, BSDH, MHA--Central Region Clinical Educator for Dentsply Sirona
Understanding the importance of relationships and the steps involved in creating an environment of trust and confidence between patient and practitioner are essential factors in helping patients feel comfortable when making dental decisions. This course will review factors that influence dental patient’s decision making and discuss the basic concepts of effective communication and relationship building. The importance of collaboration, co-diagnosis, and communication between the doctor and the hygienist will be highlighted including tips for implementing an efficient, consistent, and productive hygiene examination
Topic:  Improving Oral Health, Getting the Best From Your Patients

This course will explore the concepts behind behavior change.  What are the obstacles to changing behavior, and what we can do to enhance our oral care conversation with our patients to facilitate their innate motivation to change? We will also review an online program to help support your oral health conversation, the Gum Health Physical.
