Make Continuing Education Part of Your New Year Resolution

It’s that time of year again. As the holidays have ended, you might be thinking about your New Year’s Resolution. For 2015, take charge of your practice and make a resolution to provide improved care and services. By expanding your practice to properly treat patients with sleep apnea or TMD, you can significantly improve your patients’ oral and overall health.

Take a Class

In 2015 you will have the availability of fresh, new classes and lectures you can attend for Dental Sleep Medicine. Beginning in January, you can visit Nierman Practice Management, where Dr. Patel is the Clinical Education Director, for an up-to-date schedule of continuing education courses. By completing continuing education courses, you can offer your patients further services and resources to better meet their individual needs. And, not only can you attend continuing education courses, but your entire staff can as well!

Provide Educational Material

Another area of your resolution to improve your practice can be patient education material. By helping your patients better understand sleep apnea, TMD or any other area you can ensure they can take care of themselves after leaving your office. You can improve educational information by providing brochures/pamphlets, and properly answering a patient’s questions while in the office. When you provide your patients with exceptional educational information, you can continue to help them long after they leave your office.

Take a stand in 2015 and improve your practice by not only attending continuing education courses, but also by providing appropriate educational information for your patients. Make your resolution for 2015 one that will not only help your office, but your patients, as well.
