Audience: Dentists, New Dentists, Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Office Staff, Dental Residents & Dental Students
As we emerge from the public health emergency, the challenges of the healthcare system and variations in the healthcare experience of Americans have become increasingly apparent. This awareness is resulting in changes in the healthcare culture and clinical practice. Changes in business models are also increasing and impacting the profession and patient experience. Understanding the drivers influencing health experiences and outcomes and the shifts in business models is valuable to us as health care professionals and to our communities.
