Interdisciplinary Treatment Planning I: Diagnostically Driven


The fundamental rationale for a comprehensive treatment approach is a long-term strategy for dental health commensurate with an enhanced level of wellness for our patients.  Understanding parameters of disease expression is sometimes confused with parameters of patient adaptation.  Formulating the appropriate treatment plan and sequence then becomes a unique challenge.  This process can be simplified if we provide a diagnostically driven approach rather than merely a menu of treatment options.  The presentation will focus on a unique "10 Step Process" that will guide the dentist through the key elements required to achieve predictable longevity, case acceptance and patient satisfaction.

 
At the conclusion of this seminar, attendees will have learned:
  • A systematic approach for treatment planning every patient in their practice
  •  To focus on the four most important diagnositc categories
  • To develop critical risk parameters to minimize failures and maximize successful results
  • Protocols to implement treatment planning strategies
