The Art of Patient Communication

How, What & Why

Speaker: Sahil Bareja

Communication is the most valuable tool in a clinical practice. Clear, concise and accurate communication builds long term trust and patient compliance. Traditionally, there is some stigma and reticence from patients when visiting the dentist and that hinders on building a strong bond with patients. Discover how GBT can help build better communication within the practice, optimise patient care and build both profitability and productivity.

As a practice owner and Oral Health Therapist, Sahil Bareja’s practice is very much focused on prevention. Hear straight from Sahil’s mouth in this Swiss Dental Academy first webinar about what tools GBT offers him to help support his patients, how he communicates GBT to his patients and the hurdles he had to face as a result. Plus, gain access to his marketing strategies and how he grows his patient base.

 

Learning Objectives:

  • Staff engagement and GBT. How to win over hesitant staff members
  • How to communicate to patients and staff the switch from traditional methods of prevention and maintenance to GBT
  • Marketing secrets of GBT to engage existing customers and gain new customers
