The dental administrative and clinical team can contribute significantly during implant therapy, helping to ensure smooth treatment for patients as well as the surgical and referring offices. Attendees will learn how to prepare and preserve the clinical environment through proper cleaning and sterilization protocols, properly identify and anticipate necessary instruments and components for the next appointment, and understand each step in the implant treatment process. Along with gaining a basic technical knowledge of implant dentistry, the staff will learn the importance of their role in patient and interoffice communication. Effective patient communication can be critical to implant treatment acceptance; participants will become comfortable presenting treatment plans and general implant terminology to patients. Proactive inter-office communication with referring clinicians will help ensure all staff members are aware of the patient’s full medical history, implants placed, restorative components ordered and placed, and general notes specific to the patient’s case. Attendees will learn tips and techniques that can be incorporated into the practice for the benefit of the patient.
