Past Seminars

Establishing a Patient Centric Practice
Tracy Butler CRDH,MFT
This program is the first in a series of educational sessions, designed to elevate all dental team members as key partners in care. This interactive workshop emphasizes the interdisciplinary approach to ultimate patient care. Understanding your customer is critical to creating a successful practice. More importantly, defining your practice and developing strategies to achieve your ideal day is what it takes to go from “good” to great. Patients have many options when choosing a dental provider, and differentiating your practice is essential to surviving a challenging economic environment. Collaboration among the dental team is elementary to creating a positive and lasting patient experience.

In today's economy patients are looking for long-term, predictable results when making decisions on treatment options. Early detection is key when treating any disease process and especially in the treatment of periodontal disease to keep your dentistry looking greater longer. Collaboration among the entire dental team is elementary to increased case acceptance. Regenerative therapies have significantly impacted clinical practice on a number of levels. Building upon bone grafting and guided tissue regeneration techniques, emphasis will be placed on biologic modifiers, particularly enamel matrix derivative. This discussion will focus on regeneration vs. repair and the role of these progressive therapies in the decision making process. Evidence-based research and clinical cases will be presented.
