Show that you care for your patients' dental health
Motivating and educating dental patients to care for their teeth is a common challenge for dentists and hygienists. Every mouth is different, so personal education is needed. This is very important, especially with patients with health problems and after various dental procedures.
Provide concrete and personal guidance at home.
The traditional education methods - leaflets and animations - are generic and quickly discarded. Furthermore, they do not convey your personal guidance. Verbal explanation during and after the examination or treatment is also soon forgotten.
The most effective way to send your advice home to your patient is to create a personalised education video for each patient. It allows you to show concretely how to clean and/or care for the teeth in individual cases - and it can be viewed in the privacy of their home as many times as needed to learn and understand the instruction.
A personal dental video tells your patient more than just words. As a dental professional, you are often in the difficult position of recommending an expensive treatment to your patient when they are not always in the best frame of mind to make a good decision. Very often there are also a variety of options ranging from cheap and short-term to expensive, but long-lasting. And even though you are selling a service, you always want to guide your patient to making the best decision for his or her situation without placing undue pressure. The best way to sell dentistry without selling yourself is to educate your patient. And the more comprehensive and personalised the education, the more the patient can understand and trust the treatment suggestion. We know that improved understanding leads to increased case acceptance and happier patients overall. So start helping your patients by using video to consult, explain and ultimately send your advice home with them where they usually make their final decision after discussing with family and checking the family budget.
Providing personal patient education is the key to modern dental service and patient loyalty. Patients often have difficulties understanding and following the instructions of their dental care-giver. They also often find it difficult to make decisions regarding their treatment - especially when multiple options are available and big costs are involved. A personal video showing the issue and explaining in the doctor's own words and voice the suggested treatment is a powerful and compelling way to help your patients make the best choice for their oral health. Video can also be used to provide helpful instructions for oral hygiene and post-treatment care. And most important of all, these videos can be emailed directly to your patient, so they can watch and learn from home whenever they need your help.
