Dental Hygiene Schedule Training
Dental hygiene schedule training is our focus today. We move forward in our Dental Administrative Operations Manual creation. And let’s consider the top 3 items to consider now.
Remember, you can go back and add more. This exercise is to begin the process of our own practice manuals. Take what you like and customize my suggestions. But half the battle is to put pen to paper. So, let’s go!
Dental Hygiene Schedule Starting Points
- Consistent Daily Schedule with No Open Times
- Maintain Continuing Care Settings
- Weekly Hygiene Reactivation
Here are some starting points to consider. Now, there are a number of moving pieces in consistent daily schedule maintenance.
Such as appointment confirmations. And also short notice reschedules. Not to mention our patient interactions. And also our call lists.
Continuing care settings allow us to function efficiently. Because we can see who is due for what when. And we run accurate reports to support our hygiene reactivation.
So, these three starting points intermingle. However, all of our systems do entwine.
Communicate The Need for Consistency
Our dental office business assistants need to know things! Like how important it is to the business that all hygiene appointments are consistently booked. And that they are filled with the appropriate appointment type. With the right amount of time.
We do this best with hygiene schedule templates and solid training.
Continuing Care Settings
Without accurate continuing care settings, the practice flounders. Hours of wasted time are spent searching for what patient is due for which procedure.
Accurate continuing care settings bring our overdue patients into our field of vision very quickly. With proper management and systems, all of our unscheduled hygiene patients are contacted each month.
Dental Hygiene Schedule Training with Weekly Management Systems
The very best system available to dental practices is my Weekly Management System. This allows the business team to work different groups of unscheduled hygiene patients each week.
You’ll want to implement this system into your on-going training or initial training plan with your dental office teams.
