Holiday Blues: Navigating Patients’ Loneliness

Oral health and mental health issues cannot ....

Leveraging New Technologies to Enhance Patient Experience and Increase Patient Retention

Posted Nov 25th, 2019 in the wire

The dental patients we once knew are a thing of the past – much like your old flip phone.  Today’s patients are tech savvy, well educated and likely to have researched all of their symptoms and dental treatments prior to arriving in your chair. In today’s competitive landscape, dental care professionals need to inform and engage patients in a way we never could before.

The Business of Dental Hygiene

The Business of Dental Hygiene

Posted Nov 20th, 2019 in the wire

As a practicing dental hygienist, I focused on the delivery of patient-centred care, avoided the financial and operational aspects of a dental practice, and had no need for business acumen. Over time working in dental clinics, my interests and horizons expanded, and I became more and more fascinated by the economic underpinnings of an oral health care clinic.

Posted Oct 24th, 2019 in the wire, thought leadership

In July 2017, Public Health Ontario closed the first dental practice in Ontario due to an Infection Prevention and Control (IPAC) lapse. Dental offices had not yet faced this kind of IPAC audit, and the regulatory bodies were caught off guard as well. The Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario (RCDSO) and the College of Dental Hygienists of Ontario (CDHO) were alerted to the fact that regulated health professionals had been involved in the delivery of instruments that may not have been ...
