What Dentists Need to Know About Leading Hygiene Right Now

Episode Description:

Understanding how to improve your hygiene team can greatly impact your patients and practice. On this episode of Dentistry’s Growing with Grace, Grace Rizza sits down with Rachel Wall of Inspired Hygiene, to discuss the importance of strengthening your hygiene team.

We discuss how leading a hygiene team is different now than it was 6 months ago, and how dentists can identify systems that have broken down. Now is a great time to refine and elevate hygiene protocols and learning how to escape the dark "prohpy tunnel."

In this episode we:

  • Discuss the dentist’s critical role in the recovery of the hygiene department
  • Outline the elements of a hygiene exam that may be missing right now and how that affects the health of patients and practice
  • Share leadership and communication tips for keeping your hygienists engaged and positive
