No matter what we do in the office, our success is dependent on what our patients do outside of our office. Regular oral hygiene is key to oral health, yet sometimes it is a struggle. We want to emphasize a team approach to homecare, with the dental professional, the caregiver, and the patient all playing important roles. This webinar will discuss various workflow systems and a documentation system we have implemented. We may even touch on some we plan to explore in the future. We will share tools and technology that can make home hygiene less of a struggle with the ultimate goal of improving regular home hygiene for all patients, especially those who have disabilities. We then plan to conclude with a short guided oral hygiene demo and time for Q&A.
