When we were children, our parents asked us to do something and we asked “why??.” “Don’t question me-just do it!” we were told. And so-a terrible habit began of learning the how and learning the what but we lost the simple question of “why”?
This bad habit permeates dentistry in treatment planning, case presentations, patient interactions & technical decision making. It has had a profound and detrimental effect on our patients accepting treatment as well as the success of the clinical dentistry that we provide. It clouds our decision making and affects our confidence in recommending and providing care for our patients
In this ongoing series, Dr. Michael Melkers will explore the “why” of what we do, how we do it in our clinical practice. Dr. Melkers has a special gift of being able to blend the soft skills of communication with even the most complex and confusing aspects of clinical care. He has a special knack of being able to share his approach so that it is easily understood and applied immediately and help you create and implement new and impactful habits.
‘Level Up Your Confidence and Find Your Why’ will be a journey through the triad of communication, treatment planning and occlusion. He will share his unique approach that will increase your comfort and confidence in clinical and non-clinical decision making in your practice.
