Leap from the Calculus Rut to the Wellness Track: Moving from Repair to Prepare


Committed to seeing patients return healthy and with no calculus or bleeding?

Though most hygienists want to help their patients achieve total-body wellness, many find themselves without enough time in the visit.

In this practical, empowering, and actionable course, Cris Duval, RDH, reveals a groundbreaking model for professional transformation. Learn a failsafe set of practices that can uplift your daily interactions with patients. Instead of repairing damage since the last visit, work with patients preparing them for a healthier tomorrow.

Leap from the Calculus Rut to the Wellness Track

Be a LifeGuard for your patients and create predictably higher levels of health through:


    Think it’s the boss, the insurance companies, or the patient’s dental IQ that is keeping you from doing more? Nope. The change begins with you by changing limiting beliefs to empowering beliefs.


    The same script won’t work with everyone. Learn to guide patients to their own solutions—to motivate them with what they want, not what you think they should have.


    Patients are more than teeth and gums. Discover how to find the time to screen for high blood pressure, oral cancer, sleep disorders, diabetes, periodontal disease, and biofilm infection—all of which play critical roles in oral health as well as overall systemic health.

Mix & Match Components to Create Your Customized Presentation:

Overcoming Patient Objections and Obstacles to Treatment:

Getting past “I just want what my insurance will cover.”
