Maximising a Hygiene / OHT Department : COVID-19 & Beyond
Hygienist and OHT’s are a great source of support for the dentist, and revenue for the practice. These team members contribute greatly to getting patients who may not require any treatment to return every 6 months for their regular check-up. However, it can be fraught with cancellations and no shows if this department is not seamlessly integrated into the practice.
With the aim of helping practices maximise the collaboration between dentists and hygienists/OHT, this session will help you…
- Discuss how COVID-19 may change the ways you work with your hygienist
- Discover how to seamlessly implement and refine the “five fundamental systems” to maximise your Hygiene/OHT Department.
- Learn the essential communication skills you need to have your patients asking to see your hygienist/OHT.
- Ensure the dentist and hygienist/OHT are aligned around practice treatment philosophies and diagnoses.
- Increase patient participation in your practice’s Active Maintenance Program.
