Fostering a Motivated, Compliant Patient for Overall Health

Dental hygiene is truly an educational profession. To help our patients, we must first understand our patients. This presentation will provide a roadmap to building the relationships that will foster behavior modification and compliance in our patients.
 Identification of challenges faced by dental patients
 Communication – Motivational Interviewing vs. Confrontation
 How to use open-ended questions
 Utilization of the Transtheoretical Model of Change to promote behavior modification in the dental patient
 Three steps to oral care and identifying the appropriate home care for individual patient needs

At the end of the presentation the attendee will be able to:
 Answer the question of why patients don’t listen to me?
 Understand why patients don’t respond to my recommendations
 Be more effective in helping the patient WANT to be compliant
