The webinar highlights and reinforces the best things about dentistry, but notes that 17% of the dentists who participated reported that they would not choose a career in dentistry if they had their time again. From that, some of dentists’ occupational stresses are explored. The webinar is not just a lecture but explains a series of activities that can enhance a dentist’s well-being. The book contained 21 exercises and activities. The webinar has fewer but addresses the importance of values and goals for your practice; ways to monitor musculoskeletal pain, and recreational alcohol and drugs; how to make your practice environment subliminally satisfying; and some time management tips. Mentoring, positive networks, and supervision, are discussed and recommended. Who is looking out for you? You are.

Adding Value to the Patient and the Practice through the Dental Hygiene Appointment

Presenter:

Debra Seidel-Bittke

Course Overview:
As dental professionals we have a legal and ethical responsibility to our patients. We must be legally responsible and practice within a standard of care that does not take detours around treating our patients with optimal care. Optimal care includes the diagnosis of periodontal disease. Diagnosis of periodontal disease begins with a full-mouth periodontal exam. This process of care also includes legal documentation or our findings, treatment completed diagnoses and future treatment recommendations.
The course is intended for the participant to create a “Down-to-a-Science” time management system to complete optimal care for each individual patient dependent upon their specific needs.
Course Objectives:
After completing this course the participant will be able to identify challenges that affect time management. Each participant should be able to discover how to optimize their time by utilizing a specific chart audit prior to seating their patient for treatment. Participants will create a “Down-to-a-Science” time management system to use in their dental hygiene department. After completing this course, each participant will be able to elegantly and effectively communicate the patient’s treatment plan for improved case acceptance. All these ethical and legal responsibilities can be easily accomplished when you create a strategic plan to be efficient. This is where efficiency meeting proficiency

Oral Appliance therapy for OSA and oral appliances - DME provision from the dental perspective - PART 1

Presenter:

Chris Kelly - Sleep Technician, Dental Prosthetist

First published 15th September 2015 - Review date 15th September 2018.
                                                                                                                                        Obstructive Sleep Apnoea (OSA) is still a largely undiagnosed issue (80%) which affects a decent percentage of the adult population.
Therapies for OSA are in the main divided into two groups, depending on severity of the disease and tolerance of the patient.
Mild to moderate OSA can use oral appliance therapy (OAT) TO HOLD THEIR AIRWAY OPEN AT NIGHT (MOUTH SPLINT THERAPY)
Moderate to severe OSA may need CPAP TO HOLD THEIR AIRWAY OPEN AT NIGHT (AIR SPLINT THERAPY)
As this field matures, education is the key to staying relevant ; even for the manufacture of devices.
The dental team has a critical role to play in the field as OSA has A LOT to do with the same physiology that the dental teams looks at every day. The opportunities now available to help patients can become a new vocation for professionals looking for a challenging role that is a close cousin to their core clinical task set.
What you will learn;

The functions of the different member of the sleep medicine dental team
The clinical pathway
The extended pathways for a differential diagnostic requirement
The basic definitions within sleep medicine, with a focus on the area of Obstructive sleep apnoea.
The “tools of trade” used to identify and screen patients will be revealed and discussed.
Paperwork - all the relevant paperwork will be shown and explained.
DME providers- who are they and what do they do? CPAP and the options explained.
Oral appliance  designs explained and critiqued
The freedom MRD; an advanced and comprehensive Mandibular repositioning device (MRD), will be explained in detail- Chris Kelly is the inventor of the Freedom MRD.

Sub Lingual Crescent Extension: A Solution for Loose Lower Dentures-A case report

Presenter:

Nishna Pradeep and Jinsa P Devassy

First published August 22, 2015; Next review date August 22, 2018

Mandibular complete dentures frequently lack retention and stability and offer less denture-supporting area than maxillary dentures. In case of severely resorbed ridges retention is highly compromised. Extending the anterior lingual flange of the lower denture sublingually makes it possible to achieve satisfactory retention in severely resorbed ridges.

This clinical report describes a simpler method to achieve retention during impression making and thus help to maintain the retention and stability of lower dentures during function.

Presenter:

Ala Omar Ali, Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, Boston, MA, USA

First published August 22, 2015; next review date August 22, 2018


Objective: This study aimed to compare the accuracy of digital impressions obtained from various digital impression systems.

Material and methods: A typodont was prepared for a three-unit bridge, and an epoxy resin model of this preparation was designed as a reference model. A lab scanner was then used to record a digital copy of the reference model. The different systems (3M Lava C.O.S., 3Shape D900, Cadent iTero, CEREC Bluecam, and E4D Dentist) were used to scan the epoxy resin reference model and create five digital impressions each (n=5). Using computer software, the differences in spatial measurements between the digital reference model and digital impressions and were calculated. The accuracy was evaluated based on the mean difference and standard deviation in micrometers (?m) for each system’s set of five digital impressions.

First reviewed 15th May 2015 - Next review date 15th May 2018 = 1 CLINICAL CPDCourse Outline Trauma to the mouth involves not only the teeth but also the dental pulp, the periodontal ligament, bone, gingiva and other associated structures. There are many different types of injuries with varying severity in each case and often more than one injury to a tooth at the same time. Hence, there are many different potential responses of the various tissues following trauma. The responses are inter-related and dependent on each other, which results in many potential consequences of trauma to the teeth. It is imperative that dentists have a thorough understanding of the possible tissue responses so appropriate treatment can be provided to minimise the consequences of trauma. This lecture will outline the common and most severe consequences, and ways to reduce them. In particular, discussion will focus on when you should and when you should not start root canal treatmentCourse Learning Objectives:

Following this presentation, participants should be able to:

1. Outline the various favourable and unfavourable tissue responses to trauma
 2. Discuss the main consequences of trauma to the teeth.
 3. Discuss how to minimise the consequences of trauma to the teeth.
 4. Know when root canal treatment is indicated for traumatized teeth.
 5. Know the details of the various emergency procedures that are required to manage traumatized teeth when the patient first presents after the injury as well as in the medium and long term.

The Aetiology of Malocclusion

I will show what success I have had influencing these patterns in the growing child.
The orthodontic teaching that I received as an undergraduate was based on the assumption that the shape and size of the jaws is fixed and any attempt to change that will only result in relapse and disappointment for the patient and practitioner.
Orthodontics is limited to moving teeth within the jaws. Over the last twenty years I have become familiar with teachers who say the bones of the jaws and skull are part of a complex balance of muscles and bones supported on the vertebral column which itself is supported on the hips and feet. An imbalance anywhere in the system will be reflected throughout the system.

Restoration of Endodontically Treated Teeth - Part 3 - Final Do's and Don'ts

Presenter:

Dr Harish Gulati BDS DDS CAGS Boston USA

First Reviewed 15th May 2015; Next Review date 15th May 2018 = 1 CLINICAL CPDCourse Outline
Do you find restoration of an endodontically treated tooth to be a dilemma, or a challenge? With a plethora of post system available, it is difficult for a dentist to decide which one to use. In Addition, new post systems are being introduced without the existing ones being thoroughly evaluated.
This course will review, assess and identify the pros and cons of different post systems, in terms of strength, weakness, research and other important clinical considerations.
In addition the course will also cover fundamental principles of post and core systems and the reasons for having more than one post system in your practice.
Although ultimately the choice of a post and core system for many dentists is driven by personal preference, there are certain pitfalls to be aware of and avoid.

As new technology, loading protocol, surgical techniques and implant restorative material emerge, it is easy to forget the basics. These are the all important "when to" and "when not to" provide implant treatment. This presentation will remind us how to focus on the fundamental issues of case selection and avoid being swept along by the tide of information and be become trapped into providing treatment that never should have started.

Last Review Date 30th June 2015; Next Review date 30th June 2018                                                                                           Learning Objectives:                                                                                           The identification, evaluation, control and neutralization of worsening factors in a developing malocclusion. Review of facial growth patterns and a rational choice of diagnostic and therapeutic orthodontic treatment procedures. Doctors will be shown how to minimize skeletal, dentoalveolar and muscular problems, by the end of the transition to the permanent dentition. Program Outline:

Interceptive orthodontics
Growth modification
Patient co-operation
Early treatment philosophy
Age 3-7 diagnosis and treatment
Oral habits: thumb, tongue, pacifier
Posterior cross bite
Anterior cross bite
Allergies, adenoids and airways
Eruption problems
2x4 straightwire appliance in mixed dentition
Harmonizing width of the dental arches
Improving speech problems
Simplifying and/or shorting treatment time for later corrective orthodontics
Reducing the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth

Maintaining early treatment changes as the face matures
Interceptive therapies in Class III malocclusions
Planas direct tracks technique
Treatment and prevention of craniomandibular disorders in paediatric dentistry
Prevention and treatment of periodontal problems in interceptive orthodontics
Prevention and treatment of dental trauma

WHY TREAT EARLY?
Leeway space can be used to advantage in the mixed dentition.
Maxillary first molars can be derotated and distalised before the eruption of the second molars.
Spontaneous drift is also more effective in the developing dentition and functional appliances can be used during a period of favourable growth.
Understanding when to treat is based on the identification, evaluation, control and neutralization of worsening factors of an initial malocclusion. This requires a knowledge of factors such as growth patterns and a rational choice of diagnostic and therapeutic treatment procedures. The orthodontic practitioner must have a thorough understanding of craniofacial growth and of the development of the dental arches in order to provide the patient with the most effective and efficient regimen of treatment.
The concept of early treatment must be defined further within the context of overall orthodontic intervention to derive principles to guide the clinician in providing effective early treatment. It is the goal of early treatment to minimize or eliminate skeletal, dentoalveolar and muscular problems by the end of the transition to the permanent dentition. At this time, it is hoped that skeletal imbalances have been resolved in all three planes of space and that major abnormalities in the occlusion may be corrected so that a relatively straight-forward final fixed appliance phase can resolve the remaining problems.



BENEFITS OF EARLY TREATMENT
Influence jaw growth in a positive manner
Harmonize width of the dental arches
Improve eruption patterns
Lower risk of trauma to protruded upper incisors
Correct harmful oral habits
Improve aesthetics and self esteem
Simplify and/or shorten treatment time for later corrective orthodontics

Treating Snoring and Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) with Oral Appliances

Presenter:

Dr Derek Mahony

Last reviewed 9th May 2015: Next review date 9th May 2018                                                                                                                                          Snoring and obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) have plagued the human race throughouthistory. Snoring has featured as a laughable, comical condition for hundreds of years butonly now is the general public starting to understand the risks of snoring and itsrelationship with OSA.
SLEEP disorders affect 1.2 million Australians – six per cent of the population – at a costof $10.3 billion a year to the economy1. The total health costs of sleep disorders – ofwhich Obstructive Sleep Apnea OSA is the biggest problem – is said to be $628 million ayear; equal to the cost of asthma.
Co-morbidities of OSA include hypertension, coronary atherosclerosis, heart failure,stroke, diabetes, obesity and gastroesophageal reflux disease.
And, as levels of obesity continue to rise across the Western world, levels of snoring andOSA – along with the co-morbidities - continue to rise alongside it.It is already an epidemic.

Interceptive Treatment for the Class III Malocclusion

Presenter:

Dr Derek Mahony

Last Review Date 9th May 2015; Next Review date 9th May 2018                                                                                                                                            A developing Class III malocclusion is one of the most challenging problems confronting an orthodontic clinician. If left untreated the Class III malocclusion may worsen, with the majority of these patients ultimately requiring orthognathic surgery, as adults. For this reason, I recommend early interceptive orthodontic treatment to reduce the percentage need for surgery. Unfortunately, when interceptive Class III treatment is initiated at the appropriate age, there is often a significant amount of time between the end of facemask treatment and the beginning of “definitive” orthodontics. I have written this article in an attempt to clarify the correct treatment protocol for Class III patients and to suggest methods of retention during their continued period of facial growth. A developing Class III malocclusion can present with maxillary skeletal retrusion, mandibular skeletal protrusion, or a combination of the two. In addition to these sagittal problems there may also be posterior and anterior crossbites present. Dental compensation, such as maxillary dentoalveolar protrusion and mandibular dentoalveolar retrusion tend to produce poor facial profiles with midface deficiencies often apparent. The prevalence of Class III malocclusion is approximately 5% in the Caucasian population, rising to as much as 50% in the Japanese and Korean population.

The most important trait, natural or cultivated, on a group trip is cheerfulness. Whether you do so now, I would ask that each of you begin to practice and cultivate cheerfulness at all times no matter what happens. You will need to be physically, emotionally, and mentally in shape for the trip, and you should be training for all of these, but in the end, when the inevitable fatigue sets in, when expectations are disappointed, when culture shock begins to have its way with you, cheerfulness keeps the ship right. Lack of cheerfulness, or false cheerfulness, is poison. Please begin to examine yourself in terms of cheer. It will matter at 7 am sometime about July 4th, I promise.

Perio Disease Diagnosis, Causality and Risk Factors

Presenter:

Dr Richard Nagelberg

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                         There are significant differences between diagnosis, causality and risk factors, all of which play a role in treatment planning, the predictability of treatment outcomes and managing less than ideal results.
All clinical situations in dentistry do not require the identification of the specific causality to arrive at a satisfactory clinical outcome. When there is a diagnosis of a carious lesion, identifying the bacteria responsible for the caries does not impact treatment decisions.
We have arrived at the endpoint of therapy when removal of the decayed tooth structure and placement of a restoration is completed. In other words, it is sufficient in the case of caries to achieve treatment success without identifying the specific bacteria that caused the lesion.

Perio-Systemic Thoughts

Dr Richard Nagelberg

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                        The oral systemic links or mouth-body connections are now well established concepts in the dental and medical professions. I speak about these links in my presentations all the time. Sometimes we are all able to step back from the minute details of the events and factors involved in these relationships, and see the whole forest, not just the individual trees. When a person has diabetes, there is not a concept that the areas of the body that are commonly affected, such as the feet, or the kidneys or the eyes are not connected to the rest of the body. They are just parts of the body. Even though we now accept oral systemic linkages, the very concept implies that the oral cavity is, to some extent, separate from the rest of the body.

Therapeutic Endpoint

Presenter:

Dr Richard Nagelberg

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                               We have historically defined the endpoint of periodontal treatment as clinical resolution, primarily manifesting as reduction in several parameters including pocket depth, bleeding, swelling, redness, and increases in others such as bone and gingival attachment levels. When we achieve favorable results we conclude that the endpoint of therapy has been achieved and place the patient on a 3 month maintenance interval because periodontal disease is a chronic, non-curable bacterial infection, requiring on-going therapy.
We have not; however, looked at the pre and post-op levels of the bacteria that started the disease process in the first place. How do we know if we have achieved reduction in bacteria levels and distribution? Clinical improvement is not necessarily accompanied by bacterial reduction or increases in the level of other pathogens.

This popular children’s song summarises what many dentists face when it comes to their superannuation retirement savings.
There are many dentists who believe they are doing the right thing by contributing into their super fund, in the belief that it will provide an adequate retirement nest egg. The big question is, how much is actually going towards wealth creation? Obviously, there are fees to be deducted ? and of course there’s the matter of what investment markets might do!
However this article focuses on one of the less obvious costs ? insurance premiums. My concern is that because of these leakages, retirement savings are not going to accumulate to the projections provided by online calculators. Many Australians are going to get a rude shock when it’s too late to do anything about it.

Mouth-breathing, malocclusion and the restoration of nasal breathing

Presenter:

Dr Derek Mahony

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                      Most dentists and orthodontists are aware of the impact that mouth breathing has on the development of the maxilla. Most are also aware of the fact that even after successful realignment of teeth, unless a retainer is used, relapse usually occurs.
The tongue is nature's retainer and at the lateral force exertion of 500Gm provides the balance required against the inward force pull of the cheek muscles, at also around 500Gm.

Refining Occlusion with Muscle Balance to Enhance Long-term Orthodontic Stability

Presenter:

Dr Derek Mahony

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                            The primary objective of orthodontic treatment is the movement of teeth into a more ideal relationship, not only for aesthetic, but also for functional considerations. Another very important objective, often not given enough consideration, is the need to finish the case with the muscles of mastication in equilibrium. If muscle balance is not achieved, an endless procession of retainers, is required for retention. In simple terms, if the occlusal forces in maximum intercuspation are unevenly distributed around the arch, tooth movement will most likely occur. However, today it is possible to precisely measure the relative force of each occlusal contact, the timing of the occlusal contacts and specific muscle contraction levels, all simultaneously. This technological breakthrough represents a new opportunity for orthodontists everywhere.

The airway, breathing and orthodontics

Dr Derek Mahony

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                      Dentists need to play a bigger role in managing airway development and craniofacial formation even though the relationship between the airway, breathing and malocclusion remains quite controversial. Certainly, the airway, mode of breathing, and craniofacial formation are so inter-related during growth and development that form can follow function and function can follow form. So, it is imperative to normalize form and function as early as possible, so that function is optimized for life.

Early in his career Dr Mahony learned from leading clinicians the dramatic effect functional appliance therapy can afford patients in orthodontic treatment. He has been combining the fixed and functional appliance approach ever since. His lectures are based on the positive impact such a combined treatment approach has had on his orthodontic results and the benefits this philosophy provides from a practice management viewpoint.
After completing his Dental Degree at the University of Sydney Dr Mahony proceeded to the United Kingdom where he completed his Masters Degree in Orthodontics at the Eastman Dental Hospital, Institute of Dental Surgery, London.
Further studies led to the successful completion of a Diploma in Orthodontics at the Royal College of Surgeons, Edinburgh. Dr. Mahony has also passed the Royal College of Dentists in Canada post graduate examination in the field of orthodontics.
Dr Mahony has passed examinations leading to a postgraduate qualification in Dentofacial Orthopaedics from the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Glasgow. He has also attained his Membership in Orthodontics qualification from the Royal College of Surgeons, England.
Dr Mahony has been seeing an average of 250 patients per week for the last decade and has gained a vast amount of experience which he can pass on to clinicians so that they can come to appreciate the key elements of his combined treatment approach. He currently has over 3000 orthodontic patients in active treatment and has been a key note speaker at the International Orthodontic Summit meetings, the International Association of Orthodontics meetings, and the American Association of Functional Orthodontics meetings. He is considered by some to be the “next leading lecturer on functional/fixed orthodontics.” Dr Mahony will provide a stimulating presentation for clinicians wishing to advance their treatment results via a simplistic step by step approach.
Dr Mahony approaches his orthodontic diagnosis from a “facial profile” point of view. He sets his treatment goals to create not just straight teeth, but beautiful faces and healthy temporomandibular joints.
Dr Mahony is a contributing editor to the Journal of Clinical Paediatric Dentistry, International Orthodontic Journal and Spanish Journal of Dentofacial Orthopaedics.

Interceptive Orthodontic Treatment in the Mixed Dentition PART 1

Presenter:

Dr Derek Mahony





Last Review Date 15th May 2015; Next Review date 15th May 2018                                                                                                                                    Learning Objectives: The identification, evaluation, control and neutralization of worsening factors in a developing malocclusion. Review of facial growth patterns and a rational choice of diagnostic and therapeutic orthodontic treatment procedures. Doctors will be shown how to minimize skeletal, dentoalveolar and muscular problems, by the end of the transition to the permanent dentition. Program Outline:

Interceptive orthodontics
Growth modification
Patient co-operation
Early treatment philosophy
Age 3-7 diagnosis and treatment
Oral habits: thumb, tongue, pacifier
Posterior cross bite
Anterior cross bite
Allergies, adenoids and airways
Eruption problems
2x4 straightwire appliance in mixed dentition
Harmonizing width of the dental arches
Improving speech problems
Simplifying and/or shorting treatment time for later corrective orthodontics
Reducing the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth
Maintaining leeway space
Myo-functional therapy
Maintaining early treatment changes as the face matures
Interceptive therapies in Class III malocclusions
Planas direct tracks technique
Treatment and prevention of craniomandibular disorders in paediatric dentistry
Prevention and treatment of periodontal problems in interceptive orthodontics
Prevention and treatment of dental trauma

WHY TREAT EARLY?
Leeway space can be used to advantage in the mixed dentition.
Maxillary first molars can be derotated and distalised before the eruption of the second molars.
Spontaneous drift is also more effective in the developing dentition and functional appliances can be used during a period of favourable growth.
Understanding when to treat is based on the identification, evaluation, control and neutralization of worsening factors of an initial malocclusion. This requires a knowledge of factors such as growth patterns and a rational choice of diagnostic and therapeutic treatment procedures. The orthodontic practitioner must have a thorough understanding of craniofacial growth and of the development of the dental arches in order to provide the patient with the most effective and efficient regimen of treatment.
The concept of early treatment must be defined further within the context of overall orthodontic intervention to derive principles to guide the clinician in providing effective early treatment. It is the goal of early treatment to minimize or eliminate skeletal, dentoalveolar and muscular problems by the end of the transition to the permanent dentition. At this time, it is hoped that skeletal imbalances have been resolved in all three planes of space and that major abnormalities in the occlusion may be corrected so that a relatively straight-forward final fixed appliance phase can resolve the remaining problems.



BENEFITS OF EARLY TREATMENT                                                                                                                                      Influence jaw growth in a positive manner
Harmonize width of the dental arches
Improve eruption patterns
Lower risk of trauma to protruded upper incisors
Correct harmful oral habits
Improve aesthetics and self esteem
Simplify and/or shorten treatment time for later corrective orthodontics
Reduce the likelihood of impacted permanent teeth
Improve some speech problems
Preserve or gain space for erupting permanent teeth

They can be classified in a variety of ways, most usefully on the basis of the size of the filler particles. Resin composite is now the materials of choice for many restorations, including most occlusal cavities. The successful use of resin composite requires meticulous attention to enamel bonding, which will be described. In the long term, resin composite will have an increasing use in posterior approximal cavities, not only because of patient demands but also because of environmental concerns regarding mercury. This program will focus particularly on the use of resin composite in posterior teeth, by identifying the main problems and describing clinical strategies to overcome these problems. The clinical performance of resin composites in posterior teeth will be discussed.
This program consists of approximately 45 slides which describe resin composites and their successful use, particularly in posterior teeth. LEARNING OBJECTIVESAt the end of the lecture, participants will be able to:

understand the classification of resin composites
understand the rationale and techniques of bonding to enamel
identify the main problems of using resin composite inposterior teeth
be familiar with strategies to overcome these problems.

Who's pulling your adviser's strings?

Phillip Win

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                    Who controls the financial advice that’s being given to Australians? If you don’t think this is important, you might not realise the massive dominance of advice in this country by a few major financial institutions. By controlling advice, these institutions also control the products that are being recommended to you. And because of loose regulations around branding, many clients don’t even know whether their adviser is aligned with an institution. We think it’s very important that people understand who’s behind the advice they are receiving, and how that might affect what products they are being offered.

Breaking the Barriers to Success

Presenter:

Kathleen McKellar & Alex Hayden

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018
                                                                                                                                                  Last week I was speaking with one of my favorite clients (friends). This client/friend is in the middle of negotiating to buy a practice, run his own practice, hire staff, expand the present premises and be responsible for, not only himself; but six other practice members.
When he called, he said right off the bat, “I am starting to worry that I had some sort of unconscious barrier to success. That I am subconsciously holding myself back. We have been through the business plan, we have the financials, we are looking at staff, we are putting in the systems, procedures and policies, we are eighty percent there and I feel as if I am not able to reach the goal line.”
A constant pattern with people who have success barriers is they make it eighty percent of the way. They start their projects with gusto and then Boom. Something internal prevents them for accomplishing. I have been here often with my clients.

Managing Patient Behaviour for Success

Presenter:

Kathleen McKellar & Alex Hayden

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                                   This is a tough one and very few of us have the natural gift of Managing Patient Behaviour for Success. Most of us have to work very hard to be successful in this arena. The reason is, that each one of us has different and individual personalities, characteristics, behaviour, values, attitudes, perceptions, stress levels, energy levels, beliefs and itinerates. Because of this individualism; even when we have been raised in the same household, by the same patients, attended the same schools, played the same sports, etc., we are adherently different from one another.
Managing patient behaviour for success is hard; however it is not impossible. For true Leaders it is relatively easy to manage patient behaviour for success; however the more of a follower and introvert we are, the harder it is for us to manage patient behaviour.
The characteristics of a True Leader are: speaks with authority, strengthens others, optimistic, enthusiastic, focuses on the objectives - not obstacles, empowers, takes initiative, good judgment, cultivates loyalty, has empathy for others, his conscience is clear, he is definite and decisive, does not abdicate, knows his calling, knows his limitations, is resilient, passionate, trustworthy, forward thinking, set an example, keeps others informed, seek self improvement, develop

The Importance of Treatment Planning

Presenter:

Kathleen McKellar & Alex Hayden

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                             Dentistry is both an art and a science. The treatment plan is important as it organizes the dentist’s thoughts, communicates to the rest of the practice what can be done for this patient and allows the front desk to make solid financial arrangements and scheduled effectively. Most importantly a comprehensive treatment plan “Wows” and educates your patients in the best dentistry available.
A good treatment plan comes about as the outcome of taking carefully considered systems and procedures. One: Building a relationship with the patient and learning their wants and desires. Two: A complete medical and dental health history. Three: A comprehensive clinical examination. These are the most important aspects of the patient treatment planning process. It is only possible to build an excellent treatment plan by combining and collating these procedures.

The Steps to Treatment Planning

Presenter:

Kathleen McKellar & Alex Hayden

Last review Date May 2015, Next review date May 2018                                                                                                                                             Previously, the sheer volume of patients made a dental practice successful. Today, with high competition, we need to create value for our dentistry and make sure the patient understand every concept of the treatment we are recommending.
As we need to encourage the greatest number of patients to accept the optimum dental treatments. It is important to follow the steps of treatment planning.
After a comprehensive new patient experience, a treatment plan is written up for the patient. If we have listened to our patients wants, needs and desires, it is unlikely we will have to write more than two treatment plans. The less we know our patients, the more treatment plans we tend to present.
