Upholding the highest patient safety standards remains one of the top requirements for any successful, flourishing dental practice, and even more so as we continue to navigate our way through the ongoing pandemic and the spread of variants. Even without COVID-19, your patients often approach dental consultations and procedures with a certain level of anxiety and trepidation. So, what are you doing to provide comfort and assurance that you’re doing everything you can to keep them safe and healthy?
One key to establishing a patient safety message that permeates your dental practice is using your waiting room to create a peaceful and pleasant experience, one that bolsters trust while your patients wait. Not only can you reassure patients about extra steps the practice is taking to keep them safe, you can utilize their waiting time to remind them about important oral health topics.
