Don't Forget Your Visual Aids

Don't Forget Your Visual Aids

As a dental professional sometimes we forget our job includes education.  Even though many patients are aware of what we do, they don’t always practice it.  It is important that we make a lasting impression on our patients so that we see positive results and progress at their next visit.  

The biggest assets that we have in our arsenal are our visual aids.  That may not look the same for every office, however whether you are using an Intraoral camera, mouth models, Xrays or pictures; it is imperative that we relay the importance of one's dental health so that the patient is able to visualize the urgency of what we are diagnosing.

Good patient health begins with good patient education

With oral cancers, decay and periodontal disease all serious health issues, it is necessary that we convey the importance to the patient of the seriousness of their oral health status.
