Treating People, Not Patients – Having Patients Say Yes to Treatment: Exam, Diagnosis, Treatment Planning and Delivery of Comprehensive Dental Care
Credits: 7.00
A healthy periodontium is the foundation of a healthy mouth, and thus the foundation of all dentistry. A comprehensive examination is an essential first step in the performance of ideal dental care, but getting a patient to “say yes” to treatment involves more than just reporting one's findings.

In this course, Dr. Sonick will review the important patient communication techniques that have enabled him to build a successful practice where over 90% of his patients say yes to comprehensive dental treatment – and keep his practice fully booked 2-3 months in advance!
