In order for this to happen, not only must the dentist’s technical abilities grow, but so must the organizational, managerial and communication of the entire team.
This course is designed so that the clinical and business team come home with a unified vision of how to schedule appointments, the specific roles of each team member in the new patient examination process, the verbal skills to communicate with patients and a programmed approach to case presentation.
