Patients arrive at your office with various expectations based on their previous dental experiences. Their own stories may be positive, frustrating, or even demotivating, yet each encounter gives us the ability to create a new perception of oral healthcare. Your patient rapport is just as important as the therapies you recommend, especially when you’re trying to modify patient behavior in an effort to achieve oral health.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Compare and contrast rapport versus relationships
  • Identify common communication barriers
  • Use saliva as a conversation generator
  • Gain commitment from “non-compliant” patients
Recommended Audience: Assistant, Dentist, Hygienist
