On this episode of the Raving Patients Podcast, Len sits down with Karen Daw to discuss how to promote safety within your practice to your patients. There's no doubt we live in an interconnected age. That is, we have more access to information than any time in human history. With so much access to information, we seem to be losing the fine art of communication. And in the era of COVID-19, safety dialogue is more important than ever. By incorporating safety efforts in our communication, we will reassure patients visiting the dental practice is safe and maximize the appointment time with less turnover per chair while providing necessary care.
