Overview

Creating superior diagnostics results in more efficient methodologies that leads to better decision making and ultimately a higher quality of care and long-term success. Ultimately these diagnostics can lower the costs to the patient by creating more customized approaches to their dental care and equally create the ideal treatment plans for long term success. This course will take the participant into modern day general dentistry and demonstrate why the general practitioner must be in control of how their treatments are integrated with specialists. Dr. Graham will present the latest software technologies and “actionable analytics” to demonstrate clear pathways in creating office/hygiene growth. This is a great team course and is designed with common sense approaches to drive your office forward.

Learning Objectives

  • Creating the ideal initial exam, customized per patient and how it intertwines with your in office dental plan
  • How transillumination, fluorescence, digital imaging and CBCT technology truly supplement your explorers and 2D x-rays
  • Today’s recall exam, why it is the health of your practice
  • New protocols that challenge traditional dentistry
  • Today’s initial exam and why CBCT imaging will be replacing the FMX
  • Personalizing your communications, why it is not an option!

  • Why KPI’s are becoming essential to your practice and which analytics are the keys to your office’s growth
