Translating research data into something meaningful for our patients
Dental hygienists routinely assess their patients' oral health by correlating their behaviors, habits, conditions and diseases with current medical and dental data reported in the literature. However, informing patients of their status can be challenging because most patients are neither able to decipher professional language and data nor apply it to themselves. Add to this the appointment time constraints that we face and it is easy to see why information critical to the success of offered treatment and increased patient compliance is often sketchy or not as individualized as it could be.
