Course Description:

We can all agree that we buy what we WANT, not always what we NEED. Your patients are the same way! This webinar will show you and your team how to speak directly to your patients ‘personal motivators.’ This simple tool shows them the WHY behind the need for their dentistry, both as it relates to their oral systemic health and to the things that are most important to them… all while significantly increasing your case acceptance and retention.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify the three domains of personal motivators.
  • Differentiate how to listen for vs. to what your patients are saying.
  • Recognize how to overcome financial barriers (e.g., insurance).
  • Identify three simple steps to utilizing personal motivators in your practice.
