Does your team work together when presenting treatment? Do you know your acceptance ratio?

As clinicians, the dental team views the treatment as the primary concern when presenting treatment plans to the patient. As a consumer, patients need to know the benefit when deciding on need vs want. As professionals, we need to present the topic as a course of action that will provide benefit to the patient. Bringing the two together is what creates the mindset that both sides need to help your patients find the path to a healthy mouth.

Treatment plan presentations are a vital part of any dental office. Let’s discuss in detail all the situations going on that prevent your patients from saying yes to that needed treatment. We will review the 4 critical steps for an effective handoff, successful ways to overcome the many objections that come up and finally keeping your pulse on the acceptance of all treatment diagnosed.

Learning Objectives

  • To effectively organize the presentation
  • Learn how to communicate with the patient
  • Stay on topic
