How to Be Aware of the Blind Spots When Communicating With Your Dental Patients

Uncategorized Jan 29, 2020

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…

  • Will it be sore?
  • How long will it last?
  • What will it look like?
  • How much will it cost?

So, always try to avoid any ‘dental jargon’ when with your patients.

Remember…

If you want to impress someone, make it complicated.

If you want to help them, make it simple.

Warm Regards,
