I imagine many dental hygienists recognize this challenge: How to help patients adopt the personal instructions provided during an oral hygiene check-up?
The patient's interest and motivation to care for his or her own oral health at home can be improved with authentic, personal videos. Recorded during the hygiene check-up and watched together at the reception, the videos strengthen the dialogue about the kind of care needed at home. Afterwards the information is made available via a personal e-mail link, so the patient can check the instructions when and where needed.
Video dentistry also helps the hygienist’s own work: visual documentation is clear, remains readily available and is easy to share with the other members of the treatment team.
