National Dental Assistants Recognition Week: 5-11
National Kidney Month – Good dental health isn’t just about preventing cavities and keeping your gums healthy. Both tooth decay and gum disease can lead to infections that can cause problems for people with kidney disease. A study in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology reported that people with kidney disease and those on dialysis are more likely to have periodontal disease and other oral health problems than the general population.
National Sleep Awareness Week: 5-11 Sleep Apnea and Snoring Treatments. (Approximately 50 to 70 million American adults suffer from sleep disorders.)
Hygiene Continuing Care Tip…
National Cleaning Week: 26th/4-2 (Last Week) – Encourage your past-due hygiene patients to come in. Offer special incentives such as % off teeth whitening or complimentary adult fluoride.
March is an especially important month for any of you that typically struggle with the appointment schedule during the month of September. Be sure to pre-appoint your March hygiene patients for their 6-month continuing care appointments. (If this isn’t already being done with your hygiene patients, make it your goal to schedule their next appointment while they are there in the office.)
