When it comes to success in the dental field, each unique department requires the attention of a skilled leader such as you. As a dentist and dental consultant in the Portland area, I’ve seen first-hand how a well-oiled hygiene department can be the backbone of success for a practice.
When reaching to meet its potential, a hygiene department can accomplish so much more than just pump out SRPs and prophy appointments. Hygienists can take the time and effort to effectively educate their patients, whose rapt attention is ensured thanks to a good-ole Gracie curette. Such kind and meaningful education can help your patient base perceive the value of their dental health, increasing treatment plan acceptance and lowering the number of broken appointments.
For your hygiene department to flourish, an effective recall strategy is crucial. Recall is delicate, too heavy-handed and your practice can alienate patients, too gentle and they may forget about you. When executed properly, your office recall is truly beneficial to both patients and to your practice.
If your hygiene department hasn’t shown growth in years, or if your rate of patient attrition seems too high, consider building up your hygiene department to build your practice for success! Contact DentistCEO, your dental consultant for Portland area dentists today.
