Course Description

In most dental offices the health history is meaningless. But not in yours! For the total health dental practice the health history must assist the clinician in risk assessment for Metabolic illnesses, airway/sleep disorders, food sensitivities/allergies, addictions... and the list goes on.  It must  also assist the patient in helping  Identify and “own” their conditions.

This webinar will help you re-design a powerful health history and thereby change the patients’ experience of your practice

Learning Objectives

  1. See how to build a concise and powerful health history to support the clinicians suspicions and the patients self -discovery.
  2. Discover the elements that differ significantly in an adult versus  pediatric health history
  3.  learn when to use important accessory screening tools that correspond to the answers on your health history.
  4. Recall the importance of a facilitated dialogue in helping patients move forward with health change behavior and case acceptance. And why it should never be replaced by a health history.
