Remember, if you missed attending the live Master Class, you can watch the recording and take the quiz to earn CE credits.  


Calibration with Specialists

If you attended Friday's Master Class, you know how important calibration and communication are with your team of specialists (or vice versa).   When is the last time you sat down and got on the same page with one another?  One thing that the pandemic has taught us, is that it's so easy to jump on a video call and talk or look at cases together.  Do you have new dental hygienists on your team?  Have they met your periodontist or calibrated on when the ideal time to refer is?  Coordinating schedules can be tough, so set up time on a regular basis to stay up to date with new treatments or protocols.
