Knowing the science and technology of fluoride as a dental practitioner is needed, but it rarely helps you explain the beneﬁts to the patient in a way that helps them accept the recommendation you are making for their oral health. Together we will take the dental terminology and turn it into phrases that help patients connect the dots about the beneﬁts a varnish can give them, especially in a day and age when people are more resistant than ever to "upselling," or hearing things online that make them question ﬂuoride and its beneﬁts vs. risks.
- Discuss the four reasons patients say “no”
- Review empowerment vs. education and features vs. beneﬁts
- Repeat proper use of CAMBRA and it’s clinical advantages
- Practice overcoming communication challenges and working through patient resistance
- Learn how to handle objections and other speciﬁc skills to overcome obstacles
