Course Description

Being effective in incorporating periodontics into the practice of dentistry can be a challenge in today’s environment. However, adhering to a mission of quality patient care, enhanced mental/physical well-being, with positive financial growth can overcome any respective hurdles.

We examine effective strategies to create a workflow that results in positive periodontal case acceptance. Current relationships between periodontal diseases and susceptibility to viral infections is demonstrated. By building on a growth area in periodontics from nonsurgical to surgical procedures especially with the “over 55” population produces net gain with reduced overhead. Being discriminate on technology assets with a selection producing value added revenue results in a unique practice niche that adds new patients and retains existing patients.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this lecture, participants will be able to:

  • Utilize the perio systemic link to get positive patient return and case acceptance with focus on their overall health.
  • Introduce the dental hygienist as the new patient coordinator from data collection to debridement in one appointment.
  • Create strategies and implement an oral hygiene product market center
  • Take a mundane recall appointment and turn it into one of the most valuable 45-60 minutes spent in the practice.
