You can be the most skilled and experienced dentist in the world, but when it comes to running your practice, you can’t do it all and do it well. For your practice to be its best, you need to have the right people around you: administrative assistants, dental assistants, and dental hygienists. To help, Bryant Consultants now offers dental hygiene coaching services to our clients.
Dental hygienists – a rapidly expanding field
Did you know that, between 2016 and 2026, the total job outlook for dental hygienists in the United States was expected to expand by about 20 percent? That’s according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which estimates an increase of total employment of dental hygienists of almost 41,000 by 2026. Based on these numbers, this is going to be a coveted field in the coming years.
Dental hygienists are an important asset to any dental practice. From helping to inform your patients of their level of oral health and encourage repeat hygiene visits, and they also can aid in case acceptance for patients needing additional dental work done. But, many dental practices are missing this follow through and commitment on the patient side. Dental hygiene coaching can help your team with this aspect of case acceptance and repeat hygiene appointments. In turn, your practice will flourish.
What can you expect from our hygienist coaching program?
This coaching is overseen by our very own Rachel Smith, a registered dental hygienist (or RDH) herself. Bryant Consultants offers two separate plans for dental hygienist coaching, lasting 6 or 12 months.
Whichever plan you select, you can expect the following:
- Total access to Rachel during each workweek for the extent of the plan, with communication available via text, email, or phone
- 3-6 On-site visits to your practice
- Off-site coaching by Rachel, conducted by video conference
- Document support
Whichever coaching plan you choose, the goal is always the same: elevate the level of care in your program, while also making your practice systems more efficient and maximizing your profit margin. Your dental hygienists will emerge from their coaching with a new sense of engagement and motivation while also following a shared treatment philosophy that can carry through your entire practice.
The program works because it was constructed and is led by dental hygienists for dental hygienists. As an RDH, Ms. Smith understands the unique challenges of the profession because she already has gone through them.
Why our dental hygiene coaching services is the right choice
Choosing our dental hygiene coaching service is the right choice because your practice only will be as good as your team. Just as many dentists pursue continuing education to stay up to speed on the latest techniques and procedures, dental assistants and dental hygienists need to do the same to continue to perform at their best. Going through training with Ms. Smith also will allow you as the dentist to identify the strengths of each hygienist on your team and maximize those strengths to make the most for your practice.
Training will benefit your hygienists as well, as employees who seek to improve and better their work environment have a better likelihood of being longtime employees. They’ll feel invested, helping to make your practice more efficient while also helping to foster a positive environment in the workplace.
