Beware of the Blind Spots.
In this sense, a blind spot is an area of dentistry that we assume our patients understand – when in reality they don’t at all.
(This makes sense though – how would they understand which crown or restoration is best for them?)
Dentistry is our first language.
But this is not the case for our patients.
Think of what your patients are really interested in…
So, always try to avoid any ‘dental jargon’ when with your patients.
If you want to impress someone, make it complicated.
If you want to help them, make it simple.
