Does this sound familiar?
  • Your patients need complex care, but you don’t know how to start planning it
  • You afraid your patients won’t be able to afford the treatment or respond negatively about the cost
  • You think the treatment planning processes will take too long
  • There are multiple treatment options and you confuse patients and yourself
  • You believe your patients will look for another opinion and you lose their business
  • You aren’t meeting your full potential to do the cases you should be doing

Free Networking Extravaganza with Dental Nachos x Dr Lincoln Harris on "Achieving 95% treatment acceptance"

New York: 7:00pm (ET) 1 December
Sydney: 10:00am (AEDT) 2 December 

Dr Lincoln Harris presents his globally recognised expertise on Treatment Planning and teaming up with Dental Nachos for his master class session on “Achieving 95% treatment acceptance”

In a general practice, the patients are not preframed or prepared prior to arriving. In most cases, there are plenty of people who could benefit from comprehensive care, but may not be interested, or will even leave the practice if presented with anything beyond basic general dentistry. 

This course will present key ways to plan complex treatment so that it achieves high acceptance rates and better patient outcomes.

In this class Dr Linc will cover:

  1. How to be your own second opinion.
  2. How never to get sticker shock even up to $USD75,000
  3. The three key steps to acceptance rates over 95%
  4. The guaranteed best way for the dentists to talk about costs.

Seattle Study Club Symposium featuring Dr Lincoln Harris on Treatment Planning Informed Consent

Have you ever been to the Seattle Study Club Symposium? This year it is 100% virtual and Dr Lincoln Harris has been invited to present a 60 minute lecture on Treatment Planning Informed Consent.

Informed consent is a valuable tool when communicating with our patients about the benefits and risks of treatment vs. no treatment. Most dentists see this as roadblock to case acceptance, when, in fact, the reverse can actually be true. In this presentation, Dr Harris uncovers ways to effectively explain the overall health benefits of treatment, allowing patients to make more informed decisions and resulting in higher case acceptance.

Upon completion of this session, you should be able to:

  • Converse with your patients to get a better understanding of their needs.
  • Incorporate the overall health benefits as an important component of informed consent.

See you next month!
