Course Description (Lecture Style Webinar)
Recruiting and retaining a great hygiene team is one of the greatest stressors for dentists going into 2022. Once you have the team, having the appropriate business model for your prevention center is critical. A well-run hygiene and prevention program can easily add 30K per full time hygienist, per month to your top line revenue, while delivering a higher quality of care and improving your patient’s overall health. In this course we will talk about three different hygiene practice models and what they mean to your top line; how to attract and retain talented hygienists and the 8 vital behaviors for a productive hygiene program focused on whole body health. Today’s dental practice is evolving fast with greater consumer demands, strain on dental teams, and stagnant reimbursement rates. Join us to discuss innovative ways to find the best people and leverage them to help build the best prevention department in your market.

1. Distinguish between accelerated hygiene vs. assisted hygiene and how that compares to the traditional hygiene practice model.
2. Define best practices to attract and retain talented hygienists and understand why it’s not always about the money.
3. Identify the eight vital behaviors for a productive hygiene department.
