Pearls of Wisdom
We come to see you or look at your numbers to gather information and give you personalized feed back in areas that could be fixed, improved, or changed in your hygiene department to make things better for all involved in your office.
This is the main area for hygienists when it comes to continued care for their patients. We work on prevention every day. We help to remind hygienists of their skill set, and work on 3 steps to turn around their prevention conversation with patients. We not only teach hygienists to feel more confident in themselves but teach hygienists how to increase their prevention services.
Finding periodontal disease is the easy part, but knowing how to maximize return that benefits you and the patient is the hard part. We have solutions for insurance issues, using the right codes that are involved in Perio therapy, and dealing with those difficult prophylaxis cases. We help you navigate getting paid for the work that is completed.
Does your office have a mission statement or core values? We help the team work together for a common goal. We elevate communication between departments and guide the office to run smoother by digging a little deeper. We assist in training of management to create a cohesive working environment and use tools to help develop understanding and leadership in your office.
Ever wonder if you could pay your hygienist by production but don't have the time with your busy schedule? Maybe you want to transition into an incentive pay, but don't know where to start. We help go over personalized options that would work best for your office, and assist in understanding how to maintain the momentum.
We also assist in training of management and new hygienists and work with the dentist to alleviate some of the stress in his/her life by delegating some responsibilities.
Move past the limitations in your mind and unlock your dreams.
