Good Morning Mary,
I think it is great that you are trying to find an economical way to attend RDH Under One Roof 2010. You are correct, expenses add up quickly when traveling. I would suggest posting a request in the UOR Alumni Group here on Dentistry IQ or visiting Amy Nieves lister site at www.amyrdh.com which is a very active group. We look forward to seeing you in Orlando. If you have additional questions I may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.RDH-UOR 2010 logo.jpg
I totally agree..if you could only be a silent little butterfly in my office for even a morning, you would understand. The manager is not dentally oriented at all..she was chosen by a CEO for her supposed business sense..I am waiting to see that emerge. Thank you for the support and again, I am sure in other offices, the follow through is much better. I do whatever I can and at times, I feel I am abandoning my patient to her ineptitude. I am not giving up yet.
Its my belief that you shouldn't have to "follow -up" to be sure that the tx actually gets scheduled. Through patient education, the dr. (and clinical) staff instilling the sense of urgency with the patient, and simply reiteration to the patient of said tx on the way up to the front desk/hand-off, many times the patient will be scheduling. The creation and utilization of the perfect hand off really does not mean adding more time/work to the hygienist schedule. It's just utilizing the time you have now in just a different format. Follow up can be caught up on at the morning huddles - what worked, what didn't, who scheduled, etc.
That is true. Our term starts in two weeks time & already we are in full blast.
Our dental school is 7 years old so we are still processing the best means of imparting knowledge for the generation of ME.
Thank you Mary, I appreciate your kind comments and support. Yes, there is much pain in our world, and being in the dental profession as long as I have, I know the nature of it and the challenges it can bring. And yes I have had all the "Mary Jane" jokes!
