Over the last decade, healthcare providers have grown to realize the importance of adopting a more harmonious and less segmented approach to patient care in order to achieve the best results. For Dentists, this means it’s no longer about teeth & gums alone.
With unparalleled levels of practical skill and knowledge of facial structures, dentists are in an ideal position to provide complete dento-facial care to a well- informed public. Today’s modern esthetic practice can be enhanced by incorporating systems- such as the Integrative Dental Medicine Model.
The (IDM) Integrative Dental Medicine model consists of:
History → Examination → Screening → Treatment
IDM is a proven operational model however, there is one observed problem. After office treatment is complete the patient is sent home largely unguided. This lack of professional guidance can be problematic as your patients are left alone to navigate the sea of mass market retail products, claims and promises. What do they buy, from whom and how does this fit together with their individualized treatment?
Further, with little contact during this inter-appointment period any gains you may have made on patient engagement have eroded.
What's needed is a Guided Self-Care program that seamlessly integrates with and effectively modernizes the traditional IDM model.
Introducing Oralogix CO ACTIVE CARE - a next generation IDM model. CO ACTIVE CARE is created by adding a contemporary merchandising and Guided Self-Care as the 5th component of IDM.
What's more is that CO ACTIVE CARE is simple, easy for patients to understand and it essentially gives them an active role in their own health and well being. As we now realize, engaged patients exhibit better compliance, keep their appointments and refer friends.
