4 Key Strategies in Managing a Periodontal Patient in a Changing Practice Environment - ACDE Joint Webinar Series

Sunday, May 23, 2021 from 10:00AM - 12:00PM


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.

Learning Objectives:

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

1. Utilize the perio systemic link to get positive patient return and case acceptance with focus on their overall health.

  1. Introduce the dental hygienist as the new patient coordinator from data collection to debridement in one appointment.
  2. Create strategies and implement an oral hygiene product market center
  3. Take a mundane recall appointment and turn it into one of the most valuable 45-60 minutes spent in the practice.
