From reactive to proactive. A journey to the centre of the practice

proactive careJoin Faye Donald as she explores switching from reactive to proactive care during a free webinar on Wednesday 9 June at 13:00.

During this webinar the speaker will explore how to move hygiene from reactive to proactive. As well as what impact putting it at the centre of the practice can have on dental treatment uptake, treatment outcomes and patient attitudes to investing in lifelong oral health.

  • Why change it? Getting things right

  • Managing the journey.
