It’s an upskilled communication tool removing barriers between health care workers and patients accepting ideal treatment plans.
When done correctly dentist will see an increase in treatment plan acceptance. With facilitation the dental team will be able to relate to their patients on a more personal level increasing patient rapport. When a trusting relationship is built, only then will patient education and engagement convert to treatment plan acceptance and improved patient care.
What is Four Handed Dentistry?
Four-handed dentistry is a technique when using your clinical assistant to their full potential.
The ideology being the clinician is the eyes inside the mouth and the assistant is the eyes outside of the mouth. Four-handed dentistry is when your assistant is involved in handing you each instrument as you need them without the need of the dentist to look away from the mouth at any given time.
A Dental Assistant trained in four-handed dentistry will have set up your rubber damn, place and remove your toffle myer and know exactly what instrument you need next prior to you needing it! This technique greatly improves a dental practices efficiency, productivity and your dental assistant's job satisfaction.
