“A Tale Of Two Hygienists – What Should We do?”

Today’s episode features a very interesting question. The practice has two hygienists. One has been there forever and is on the way out. She is not that up on soft tissue management and has little interest in learning. But the patients LOVE her! The other is new, has more time in the schedule, and is interested in perio therapy. But the patients don’t seem to be warming up to her. What can be done? Leave it to The Dental Practice Fixers (Dr. Richard Madow and Dr. David Madow) to sort this one out. Then we go to the “Call of The Week.” A practice is advertising on their website that they have a “Membership Plan.” But when the caller asks about it, do you think they can answer their questions? You need to listen to find out! If you have a question that you would like answered on our podcast, please send it in to podcast@madow.com. We will do our best to get yours answered
