Ten Ways to Get More Bang for the Hygiene Buck
  1. Change your practice philosophy and focus more time on client wellness which includes an evidence-based approach to oral/systemic links.

  2. Adopt evidence-based principles in dental hygiene and command more respect from your clients.

  3. Determine if your RDH/DDS can assess and correctly treatment plan gingival and periodontal diseases.

  4. Measure your hygiene department busyness (e.g., open slots) and compare perio-related revenue to non-perio adult prophy revenue.

  5. Monitor hygiene clinical treatment intensity (e.g., comprehensive hygiene treatment).

  6. Perform risk assessment for dental caries and periodontal diseases and implement the CAMBRA dental caries protocol.

  7. Devote significant staff time to your recare system and monitor its effectiveness.

  8. Strongly consider an assisted hygiene model for greater efficiency and clinical excellence.

  9. Empower your hygienist(s) to lead the hygiene department and give them the provider status and respect they deserve.

  10. For advanced periodontal therapy, consider Perioscopy technology as a NEW non-surgical option with a significant increase in hygiene production.

Many U.S. Adults are Perio Patients. Is Your Dental Hygiene Department Busy Serving Them?

The majority of the U.S. adult population exbibit a mild, chronic periodontitis and it remains a significant social, economic and overall health-related concern. Periodontal services are among the most profitable and the most needed hygiene services that a dental office can provide. These services include: 

  • Periodontal disease risk assessment;
  • Early diagnosis of gingival and periodontal diseases;
  • Non-surgical periodontal therapy;
  • Systemic and local-delivery antimicrobials;
  • Effective self-care program;
  • Periodontal maintenance.

Advancing beyond traditional dental hygiene into non-surgically focused periodontal therapy

If your dental hygiene department is not busy offering these periodontal services effectively and efficiently, your dental practice and your dental patients are missing out.

We teach dentists and hygienists how to turn their hygiene department into a valuable profit center for their dental practice and an essential component of dental patients' overall health and wellness.

NEW!NEW! Personalized telephone hourly mentoring for dentists and dental hygienists who wish to learn evidence-based dental hygiene and apply these principles to clinical hygiene excellence.
