How to bridge language barriers with your patients
from Dentistry iQ
As a young dental hygiene student, I remember needing to call back my next patient to the operatory and feeling extremely awkward because I had no idea how to pronounce this person’s name correctly. I made my best attempt but ended up butchering it completely. And then once my patient was seated, I quickly ascertained that their ability to speak English was quite limited as I was receiving a lot of responses that didn’t exactly make sense to me.
