Tip of the week: April 25th, 2017

"Re-taking courses is a great thing! If you have taken a course at rdhu in the past, it may be time for a refresher!

I wanted to share with everyone the great day I had at Essentials for Documentation. I learned a lot of new information that I will be able to use starting tomorrow. (I had previously taken the same course 5 years ago ( May 2012). I was hoping that I would feel that I received value in taking the course again.) I certainly did, as well as spending time with like-minded peers and receiving a certificate for my Smile Portal.

It happens to be a 3 hour drive and my co-worker/friend and I considered possibly leaving an hour early... we ended up being the last 2 people to leave the building!! After finding out about our long drive home, Anna Louise shared that we would probably be discussing each other’s learning nuggets and that this process/discussion is considered Peer to Peer for our Smile Portal! We were thrilled!! And she was right, we started right in the car "creating" new templates/ideas for our office. Thanks again for a great day."

Tip of the week: March 28th, 2017

"For clients with open contacts /embrasures that are not corrected with ideal restorations- have them tie a knot on their floss. This "little bump" helps to dislodge any food debris/deposits that continue to fill the space of the contact.Show them how to slide into the contact on area of floss with "no bump" then move floss along to the "bump" and floss the contact. It is amazing how you slide your fingers across the knot and it seems so small, but once in the mouth if feels like it is removing the debris!"
