The hygiene department plays a major role in the health of a practice, some may even say it is the heart of a dental practice. Knowing and improving your hygiene department vital signs can be critical to overall practice success. Hygienists are in unique positions, typically having the most one-on-one contact with the patients. They are typically first in line to present the benefits of preventive, restorative or aesthetic dentistry, providing suggestions and assisting with the decision process, setting the stage for case acceptance. Besides the direct patient care and helping patients understand the best treatment for their wants or conditions, there is also the business side of the profession – what does hygiene contribute to the financial success of the practice? A hygienist who understands the value of their position, the hygiene vital signs and thus the business side of their department can then be prepared for discussions with their employer regarding incorporation of new technology or even wage increases. This CE webinar will provide the participant with the tools and techniques to identify the vital signs of a health hygiene department, show how a successful hygienist can help improve the health of the practice, the health of the patients and promote the value they bring to the table.

Following this CE webinar participants will:
• Understand the value and business side of the hygiene department
• Recognize key Vital Signs to a healthy hygiene department
• Identify steps to create an ROI spreadsheet for incorporating new technology, treatment methodologies or additional procedures into practice   ( disclaimer , AGD PACE Statement )
