Emotional dentistry – presenting treatment options and progress to your patient

Emotional dentistry – presenting treatment options and progress to your patient

For any dental treatment, the dialogue between the professional and the patient is decisive to find the most appropriate treatment and achieve the best result.

Emotional dentistry focuses on establishing effective and beneficial communication for both parties, which results in greater patient satisfaction. Some of the pillars of this technique is the practice of active listening, and patient participation.

Salud Dental Management System has features to assist patients in seeing and understanding the treatment options and prices offered, and It also provides the patient and dental professional an overview of the treatment plan progress.

Salud Periodontal Chart:

On the left-hand side of your screen, you can see the Salud scoring categories that can be easily expanded out.

Once all information is plotted in Salud, we can check the overall score and the graphic view.

The graph view in Salud can be used as a patient education tool, where dental professionals can present all information to the patient and show the treatment progress.

In Salud, you can also easily view a comparison over time, where you can easily select any periodontal scoring category to check the patient progress.

Emotion is key – building connections with patients

Practising emotional intelligence in a dental organisation is increasingly necessary. Today, patients are looking for professionals who can listen to their needs and present practical solutions to their problems. The patients want to be fully informed and equipped to make decisions about their treatment.

Here are some tips for building a good connection with your patients:

  • Listen carefully to what the patients mean, not just what they say.
  • Empathise with patients’ struggles.
  • Offer encouragement to your patient.
  • Encourage patient participation.

Presenting treatment options to the patient to choose from is an excellent way to build a trusting relationship.

In Salud, after the patient receives the dentist’s diagnosis, different treatment options can be presented to the patient.

Salud has easy drag and drop functionality for creating treatment plan options. The patient can clearly see the treatments within each plan, and the cost associated. Once your patient has considered their options, they can digitally sign consent for their preferred plan.

Dentists use a wide variety of strategies to have some emotional connection with the patient. Listening carefully to patients and understanding their necessities is essential; the use of technologies can assist your organisation in facilitating these connections.

Real-Time Data Is a Game Changer

Real-Time Data Is a Game Changer

Modern dentistry is demanding. Nowadays, owning a profitable dental organisation requires you to be more than a dentist.

To be successful, you need to run your organisation efficiently.

Implementing the right tools is the first step in optimizing operations and patient care. Number one on the list of tools should be a good Dental Management System, next to a dental dashboard.

One of the best things about using a dashboard is the fact that you can see cause and effect!

Not only visualize it but MEASURE it!

Salud Dashboards provide an easy to read visual display of key data, in real time. No more “running” reports.

Real-time data at your fingertips enables organisation wide monitoring and trend analysis for resource and patient care optimisation.

What is a dental dashboard?

A dental dashboard is a data visualisation tool that displays your business metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) in real time.

salud dental

Salud Dashboards provide accurate real-time data to help you make decisions and changes that positively impact your company’s performance.

All data recorded in Salud can be easily extracted for further analysis. Data access can be limited to user groups and these user groups are controlled by permissions within Salud.

When it comes to business management, nothing beats real-time performance checks, balances and up-to-date progress evaluations. This is one more reason to forget spreadsheets and static reports which epically fail to meet these essential criteria.

Benefits of using Salud Dashboards

  • Increase clinic efficiency with real-time data
  • Save time with insightful and actionable data readily available
  • Improve employee motivation with immediate performance feedback
  • Improve patient care with more time focused on dentistry
  • Track trends for epidemiology studies

Our intuitive and easy-to-use dental software helps you to concentrate on patient care while Salud takes care of the rest.

Remove the Barriers to Connectivity

Remove the Barriers to Connectivity

Advances in digital dentistry are happening fast.

Dental care providers worldwide are heavily investing in new innovative technologies. Everyone wants to have the latest technology which transforms manual, time-consuming tasks into the touch of a screen.

The expectation is that all this new technology will provide a smarter, easier way of working.

However, if all these new pieces of technology do not talk to each other, is it really smarter, or easier?

patient and dentist

Working smarter, but harder.

Separate pieces of technology and software that do not talk to each other result in dentists having to juggle different systems and pull together data often duplicated, to get a complete picture.

Tasks are duplicated, time is wasted, errors increase, users are frustrated, and inevitably patients suffer.

During an appointment, the focus should be on the patient, not on the machines around them.
