LVI: Hygiene: Advanced Technologies

Aug 12-14, 2015

This course is designed to optimize your LVI journey by identifying missing links in your practice and enhancing the return on your LVI educational investment by boosting your practice’s hygiene efficiency.

The ”mouth body” connection can take your practice to the next level, by presenting opportunities to streamline your hygiene department while integrating the ultimate in comprehensive patient care.

Ask yourself:

  • What does the Ultimate hygiene department look like?
  • Is your hygienist frustrated with ”not enough” time to do everything you ask her to do?
  • Would you like to have patients that no longer bleed even just a ’little bit’?
  • How strong is your hygienist in restorative pre-diagnostic and case presentation skills?
  • How can you merge healthier teeth with the healthiest tissue?
