“The Technology Checkup: What You Don’t Know Can Hurt You an Your Patients”
This presentation is graciously co-sponsored by Colgate
Course Description: Practices are utilizing practice management software to enhance the patient experience and improve overall care. Most dental teams however are only surviving in the software and not thriving in its use. As dentistry moves towards the medical model of care, technology and software will become a more integral part of the hygienist’s practice and patient care. As a hygienist, do you understand your software and technology or are you just surviving with it? This program will review what a hygienist needs to know about practice management software and what data is important to the hygiene practice.
This program is not a training program for any specific practice management software.
Program Goal: To provide hygienists with the tools needed to understand the important hygiene related data and information in any dental practice software that will assist in providing patients with optimum care.
Upon completion of the program, participants should be able to:
1. Discuss electronic dental records and how they enhance the patient experience
2. Review basic HIPPA requirements as they pertain to electronic dental records
3. Examine dental practice management software and key data the hygienist should understand
4. Explain basic practice management principles as they relate to dental hygiene practice
