The Fox Mentorship Program: Learn Advanced Practice Skills From Your Own Office While Working On Your Own Patients.

  • It is the first personalized, one-on-one learning program offered in dentistry. A unique way to gain hands-on experience in dental procedures that you are not currently performing.

  • You receive full Continuing Education Accreditation while you learn at no extra cost.
  • You increase your Practice Revenue.
  • You enhance the goodwill of your practice and get more referrals.

PERSONALIZED MENTORSHIP: STEPS OF THE PROCESS next >

 


PERSONALIZED MENTORSHIP

Steps of the Process

1. Assist you, the doctor and your staff in exact fact finding; In this section we will help you review the qualities of your patient candidate. The patient has presented to you for a reason. Learn to pay close attention to the patient’s concerns, goals, past experiences, and dental condition or findings. Having a full grasp and understanding of these areas will allow you to visualize the outcome you wish to achieve for the patient early on. The source of the patient is most important. Is the patient an existing patient, referred from another patient, or has the patient found you from your sign or through other media. These factors are all unique and you respond according to the origin of the referred patient. Their dental experiences are important in your analysis. You can verify the will that your patient will require to accept and undergo extensive reconstruction therapy. Learn to decipher the patient’s attitude and personality. Learn the appropriate appearance, wording and contact that you will need, that are best for each patient, through early monitoring.

2. Create the blueprint of optimal treatment objectives and demonstrate methods of presentation to the patient; Learn to understand better, the way to obtain predictable and durable outcomes by limiting questionable areas in your evaluation that may compromise the best long-term results. Establish the best overall prognosis by creating a strict diagnosis on a collective basis. This will give you the confidence to guarantee your treatment, which you must be able to offer. Learn what items and facts are needed to obtain the highest rate of treatment acceptance. Learn to delegate treatment presentations to your most experienced team member. Learn how to ‘create’ your treatment coordinator.

3. Financial substantiation and arrangements; Methods and techniques in substantiating treatment costs to your patients during consultation rounds will be taught to you and your team. The importance of establishing comparative value that you are providing the patient and what they are receiving will be impressed upon you in order to facilitate treatment acceptance. We will make available the choice of attractive third party sources of financing if you do not already have this.

4. Colorize treatment alternatives with emphasis on the optimal treatment; We will provide for the patient’s viewing, images of cases that are comparable to the patient’s requirements and interpose the patient’s personal information when it is appropriate, tasteful, and useful keeping in mind the patient’s level of interpretation and perception. Treatment choices are presented but limited with the emphasis on the best possible treatment.

5. Perform implant surgery and post-op care. Surgical tactics will be reviewed. This includes proper flap design, preferred implant locations, alternative strategies when sites are compromised, techniques required in immediate placements, anticipation of bone and soft tissue augmentation, suture placement, size of healing abutments, choices of post surgical (interim) prosthesis criteria. The pre, interim and final prosthetic design has been decided prior to surgical phase.

6. Assist you or perform these prosthetics steps, as well as final insertion, occlusal refinements, and continual post treatment follow up. We will show you how to be certain of your prosthetic designs. Base this on the patient’s occlusion, changes to VDO if any, soft tissue (facial, labial, gingival, lingual (speech)) surroundings, length and width of fixtures placed, degree of crestal height post-healing and grafting responses. Anticipate changes to your prosthetic design if these areas have changed or have been compromised. Understand the difficulties associated with tooth preparation for veneers, and the occasional need for orthodontic intervention for uprighting, aligning or space regaining. Know the best approach for the insertion of your cases in order to minimize discomfort levels, maximize prosthetic retention, hygiene and maintenance and reduce the incidence of post insertion fractures with detailed equilibration.


What Do You Require To Improve?

You need to say to yourself that you are ready to expand your ability first, and believe that you can. You need to delegate functions in your office. You need to know the importance of risk: therefore you need to want to improve. You need to understand that your ‘investment’ in me is actually an investment in yourself.

You want your patients to invest the time, money, trust and their will to commit to the recommendations you make. This is their investment in you. You must not compromise this because your abilities are presently limited.

Understand that the responsibility of ‘your’ patients is ‘ours’. But let me add that a notion of liability lies in the mind of the poorly or under-informed, unprepared and unmotivated patient. Quality in determining and building this aspect of the program is paramount. This is where success in the outcome begins. Do not dwell on this fact, but keep in mind that there is always a risk when we prepare a tooth. You have the advantage of already knowing those patients who are candidates for more advanced treatment.

Start your new approach by leaving your negative thoughts behind. Begin to create your new Paradigm right now. You need to get your mindset programmed so that you can understand the will your patients and you require to proceed and to complete cases successfully. You need to be able to visualize the outcome of cases from the get go. You need experience to be able to perform and to improve.
