Survival or Reinvention, Your Choice!: Strengthening Our Dental Practices in the Era of COVID-19 – Watch-In
with Dr. Jonathan B. Levine
1CE | AGD Code: 550 Practice Management
- Understand the latest data on COVID-19 transmission in the dental clinic
- Understand additional biosafety and infection control protocols for the dental clinic
- Identify best practices for effective patient and team communication
- Actionable steps for building and maintaining a strong team culture in the dental practice
Now that dental practices have reopened across the country and are operating in a “new normal” environment, we have two choices: keeping our practices in survival mode and hoping we make it through or entering into a creative mindset of reinvention and even greater success. It is up to us to decide how we will react in this era of Covid-19 to address the changes that are happening quickly around us and emerge even stronger than before.
The dental practices that have worked hard to create a culture of communication and continuous learning have built loyal patient relationships and will find it easier to execute on the necessary biosafety protocols to create a “safe haven” for our patients and our dental teams.
But practices who have not focused on the culture of their practice can also quickly transform to address the fears of their patients and their dental teams in this most challenging time.
Based on learnings from his own successful practice reopening in New York City, Dr. Jonathan B. Levine will present a 7 -step approach to dental practice success and growth with a focus on protecting our relationships and increasing cash flow as we address the challenges of the Covid-19 world, including:
1. Patient communications
2. Team communications
3. Social distancing protocols
4. Social distancing scheduling
5. New safety protocols for the patient
6. Infection control protocols for the operatory
7. Barrier control for the sterilization area and team member testing
