Get Started with Patient Reactivation

When it comes to winning the “don’t let them slip through the cracks” game in respect to our patients and recare, it is no easy task. Continuous scrambling to fill what was once a full schedule the day before and now has more holes than a slice of Swiss cheese makes it very difficult to create a sound system. While it is important and necessary that the hygiene team help enlist their past due patients when they have open time, it still isn’t a consistent option either.

Watch the short video below on how implementing just a few simple steps will help keep less patients from “slipping through the cracks” while helping our scheduling coordinators stay a little saner!

Putting CAMBRA to Work Part 2:
My Patient is at Risk for Caries, Now What?
with special guest
Donna Brogan, RDH, BS

You’ve determined your adult patient is at an elevated risk for developing caries, how do you decide what the next step should be? Luckily CAMBRA takes us beyond the classification stage and gives customizable intervention and treatment choices. As with classification, professional judgement is encouraged and individual protocols can vary depending on how the patient presents. This course will take you through multiple intervention strategies including fluoride varnish, Xylitol, and several home products. You will also be introduced to CDT codes you can put to use immediately.

After the course you will be able to…

1) Explain the advantages of fluoride varnish for your patients and your preventive practice

2) Establish and implement personalized protocols for caries prevention

3) Use CDT codes to encourage future assistance from insurance companies

[Quick Video Tip] But They Can’t Have Treatment

Our words define our actions…and often the actions of others. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve heard ‘They can’t have that treatment, their insurance doesn’t cover it’.

In this week’s Quick Video Tip I’ll share some ideas on how to overcome this limiting belief and find the courage to share the best treatment with your patients and let THEM decide.
