Dental Treatment Case Presentation
Learn the skills necessary to help patients make an informed decision regarding their dental treatment options. An effective treatment coordinator, CDA, hygienist or receptionist should be effective in presenting the benefits of proposed treatment as well as the risks of declining the recommended treatment. Polish your speaking and listening abilities as you learn to watch for nonverbal messages that often say more than words alone. Identify the obstacles and the motivators for different types of patients. Implement strategies to assist your patients as they resolve concerns and move forward to success in accepting the dental treatment required. Learn to use strong interpersonal skills to help your patients recognize and achieve their oral health goals.

Infection Control
Infection prevention and control is an important part of safe patient care. Concerns about the possible spread of blood-borne diseases, and the impact of emerging, highly contagious respiratory and other illnesses, require practitioners to establish, evaluate, continually update and monitor their infection prevention and control strategies and protocols. These guidelines are significantly broader than previous documents, and they reflect current knowledge of the transmission of infection, and how to prevent and control it. Although the principles of infection control remain unchanged, new technologies, materials, equipment, and data require continuous evaluation of current infection control practices. The unique nature of many dental procedures, instruments, and patient care settings also may require specific strategies directed to preventing pathogen transmission among dental health care personnel and their patients.
