Tracey Lennemann, USA, Carole Brennan, UK

This combined programme has been structured to provide implant education specifically for the entire dental implant team at all levels of experience:- hygienist, nurse, practice manager and receptionist.

The course will

  • review various aspects of practice management and team involvement
  • increase understanding of aspects of communication and how choices are made
  • enable personality types to be discovered and how this relates to the team

Have you ever wondered why some people are highly motivated and some are not?

Why some of your patients have perfect compliance but others not?

Perhaps you used to be motivated but now are in a phase that nothing is quite as fun, exciting or fulfilling as it used to be?

Has your profession turned into just a job?

Everyday in our lives, communication plays an essential role. What we say, how we say it, the body language we use and what we think, affects the outcome of the conversations we have.

A successful dental implant practice includes a team-based communication system and a fully functioning, profitable dental hygiene department that incorporates the latest clinical concepts. Different components such as; office management, employee management, patient management, marketing and clinical skill management are essential for a high quality, up-to-date dental practice.

The entire Dental Team plays the most important role in implementation of these aspects.

This fun, entertaining and thought provoking presentation for the entire dental team, will challenge you to think about the various aspects of a successful implant practice, to creating a solid foundation to grow from and showing you the possibilities of how to increase profits, productivity, and patient satisfaction through team support and integration of sales, communication and customer service.

Techniques of understanding our patients needs, how they process information and what motivates them to invest time and money into dental health will be introduced. We will focus on how to build better relationships with patients by improving communication skills for motivating patients to accept treatment and improve their dental health. And last but not least, this course will challenge you to take a look into your own life and how you communicate and motivate yourself and others for future success at work and in your private life.

This course will challenge you to think about the following:

  • Practice Vision and Image; where am I now, where do I want to be?
