Looking for ways to expand your dental practice and the overall experience for your patients?
As the business model of team-based dentistry continues to evolve, creating a "dental spa," experience for dental patients offers a competitive edge for practices. Creating relaxing and "spa-like" services eases patients' anxieties and offers alternative treatments to address overall health compared to that of a traditional setting solely for oral health treatment. Whether you are a new dentist/dental professional or an established dental practitioner looking to expand your dental practice or just expanding the overall experience for your patients, this course is for you!
Speaker: Maria E. Ryan, DDS, PhD
