September 17 @ 7:30 pm

Presented by Mariana Leon, RDH.

Course Description:
Ever wonder why patients don’t follow all your oral care recommendations no matter what you do? This course will explore the concepts behind behaviour change.
What are the obstacles to changing behaviour, and what we can do to enhance our oral care conversation with our patients to faciliate their inate motivation to change?
We will have an in-depth discussion on Motivational Interviewing in the dental office complete with time to practice this proven treatment option.
At the end of this education activity the participant will be able to:

1. Understand the role denial plays in motivating change.

2. Be familiar with communication styles that resonate with patients in communication, their participation and their gingival health.

3. Demonstrate Motivational Interviewing to elicit the patient’s desire to change.
