The Hygiene Program

 

The Hygiene Program     The Heart and Soul of every dental practice.

Discover what it takes to create an OUTSTANDING HYGIENE DEPARTMENT within your practice. Grow your practice, its profits and patient retention.

Introduce solid, proven ways to activate your exiting patient base and retain your new patients. Motivation, education and oral health awareness is what returns your patients every 2, 3, 4 or 6 months. 

No one delivers this better than the experts known as Dental Hygienists and Oral Health Therapists. 

Contact us today so we can we guide you through the process of introducing the PLATINUM Professional Development Hygiene Program that has assisted hundreds of practices to grow and retain their patients. 

Implementation process delivered onsite by Kathy Metaxas.
