What: Friday, November 3, 2017: Beyond 32 Teeth: How to put on an Amazing Daily Dental Show!
Instructor: Lisa Knowles, DDS
Times: Registration and continental Breakfast: 8:00 am - 8:30 am
Credits: 7 hours CEU
Course Description: It is no longer enough to be a technical expert in the field of dentistry. You have to put on a show - every single day. The daily dental show is easier to produce once you know how to create a script and perform authentically with charisma. Dr. Knowles takes a deep look into interpersonal communication, marketing, and the business side of running your own show. Dr. Knowles will teach you how to provide a broader, more comprehensive approach to dentistry by intertwining oral and systemic health indicators into the patient conversation. This trust building technique will keep your patients' attention and help them accept treatment from you more easily. Your bottom line will soar once your office runs as smoothly as a Broadway show!
Course Objectives: As a result of attending this course, you will be able to:
- Create a memorable, consistent office culture that pays off financially
- Demonstrate an understanding between a patient's oral health and overall health.
- Build relationships between fellow healthcare professionals
- Gain the trust of your patients quickly with less stress
Instructor: Lisa Knowles is a visionary thinker and looks at the whole picture as well as the whole patient. She speaks and thinks broadly about dentistry beyond 32 teeth and works to help others understand the oral and systemic connections between dentistry and medicine. She graduated from Alma College with a major in Communication and a minor in Biochemistry. She graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. She is an adjunct profession at the University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry. She lives and works in East Lancing.
