Treating Patients from LGBTQ+ Backgrounds in Orthodontic Offices: Status quo considerations and discussion of best practices

Treating Patients from LGBTQ+ Backgrounds in Orthodontic Offices: Status quo considerations and discussion of best practices

Credits: None available.

Join Dr. Inglehart for Orthodontists and Their Patients from LGBTQ+ Backgrounds: Status quo Considerations and Future Needs (1.0 CE). In 2016, a national survey of dental school and dental hygiene program administrators reported that a large percentage of programs did not educate their students about treating patients from LGBTQ+ backgrounds. Recent surveys also showed that practitioners did not consider that they were well educated about these topics.

Yet surveys indicate that a significant percentages of practitioners report that they have patients who self identify as Lesbian, Gay or Bisexual (LGB) or as transgender (T) as well as patients on puberty blockers or receiving gender affirming care. These findings raise the question what dental care providers and their staff should know about the oral health, risk factors for poor oral health and oral healthcare utilization of patients from LGBTQ+ backgrounds to become well equipped to provide optimal care for these patients. This informative session is being provided to assist orthodontists and staff to help provide better overall care for all patients.

Learning Objectives:

  • Participants will be able to define the terms LGBTQ+
  • Learn what puberty blockers are, when they are indicated and long term consequences
  • Be able to identify risk factors for poor oral health of patients who self identify as part of the LGBTQ+ community
  • What accommodations are needed to provide a welcoming environment for all patients and parents

My Brand is ... What I Say, What I Do, What I Post

Credits: None available.

Beth Leach presents My Brand is ... What I Say, What I Do, What I Post (1.25 CE) -- Branding a practice has changed; it’s personal, it’s emotional, it’s heavily influenced by social cues. During this lecture we will go beyond the graphic representation of your brand to the strategies and languaging that create brand differentiation for yourself, your team, and your practice. You may not be the only orthodontic practice in your area, but you are unique. Establishing your unique brand in every aspect of your practice life is essential to building a successful practice.

  • Create a brand language in your practice to help team members talk about what makes the practice great.
  • Evaluate the communication methods that work best to get your brand out into the community and beyond.
  • Build language that includes messaging on text, chat, social media and messenger communications that reflects your brand position

How Orthodontic Practice Owners Can Prepare for a Potential Recession

How Orthodontic Practice Owners Can Prepare for a Potential Recession

Credits: None available.

A number of forecasters see a growing risk of recession for the United States as inflation sky rockets, what does this mean for orthodontic practices? A recession is defined “as a significant decline in economic activity spread across the economy, lasting more than a few months” and they generally occur when there is a widespread drop in consumer spending. 

What we will incur in the near future is very different from what orthodontic practices saw last year, we will see patients shift from “I want orthodontic treatment” to “do I really need orthodontic treatment?”.

Our team will dive into industry data and what we learned from the “great recession” and economic meltdown in 2008.

Topics to be discussed;

  • The effect the “Great Recession” had on orthodontic practices
  • Healthcare research data regarding consumer behaviors during a recession
  • Will private equity money continue to invest in our industry?
  • Will a recession drive more affiliations and continue to consolidate the specialty?
  • Practice overhead, cash flows and industry standards
  • Will a recession help or hurt staffing shortages, specifically hiring an orthodontic associate?
  • Tightening credit conditions and what it means if you plan to sell your practice

Recessions come and go, but some are more severe and last longer than others. This webinar we will discuss how an economic downturn will impact orthodontic practices and how owners can prepare their practices for what’s ahead.
