Last month, I shared part of a presentation I did in front of my fellow peers at SCN’s (Speaking Consulting Networking) annual convention in Orlando. I relayed a story about a patient who challenged me early on in my hygiene career. That challenging conversation changed my ‘mantra’ moving forward with treating all of my patients as if they could leave and go somewhere else tomorrow. What would that new hygienist or doctor say to my patient, aka family member, about the care they had been receiving from me?
Today’s video is a second part of that same presentation. I share how I took that previous experience and allowed it to change my mindset of mouth maid to trueHEALTH CARE PROVIDER for my patients. I also recount a story of a different patient that demonstrates how we all can and DO “Save Lives….One Mouth at a Time”!
If you or your team members are STUCK in the Mouth Maid mentality, reach out to me and let’s discuss how I can help you get UNSTUCK!

Although most offices have it, and many team members are familiar it, for many of us, 3rd party financing; how it works and when it should be used remains a mystery. During this webinar, we will demystify the use of 3rd party financing while covering a variety of important topics such as:

Is your team asleep at the wheel when it comes to clinical notes? A lack of clear and detailed clinical notes, made in an efficient manner, can make or break your practice in so many ways. When a dentist is charged with malpractice, the clinical notes are one of the first pieces of investigation.
Hopefully, you’ll never be faced with that situation and yet just as important are the role of clinical notes if you’re trying to improve insurance reimbursements, calibrate your hygienists or improve efficiency of your admin systems.
In this quick video, I’ll share the pros and cons of clinical note templates and how even this very useful tool can sometimes be misused.
