Happy & Healthy
Oral health is the gateway to improved overall health. It’s also the gateway to a thriving, profitable dental practice.
Because you see your patients twice a year, you’re in prime position to expand your practice and step into a more active role in the health of your patients.
The connection between a healthy mouth and a healthy life is being recognized and backed by resources including the Cleveland Clinic Institute of Wellness. Research has clearly shown that more than half of all healthcare expenses in the U.S. come from preventable chronic illnesses such as heart attack and stroke.
More Than Cleanings
Many of your patients are looking for more than just a cleaning and a checkup. They’re looking for ways to improve their health.
Give them what they want!
When you address overall wellness in your practice, your patients will see the difference. You’ll quickly become the go-to resource for overall health in your community, all while improving case acceptance and patient retention in your practice.
How do you address wellness from a dental chair? Simple. As we learn from the Cleveland Clinic’s Wellness Institute, four primary areas affecting overall health and wellness.
- Stress reduction
- Sleep health
- Smoking cessation
- Diet and nutrition
The Wellness Center is one of four ways you can improve the physical health of your patients while improving the financial health of your practice. The Four Profit Centers of Oral Systemic Health™ are designed for busy dentists who are looking to raise the bar on their level of care and stand apart from the average “drill ‘em and fill ‘em” dentist.”
You can improve the success of your dental practice by implementing a Wellness Center into your practice by:
- Incorporating programs from the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute to help your patients reduce stress, get better sleep, stop smoking, and improve diet and nutrition.
- Providing antioxidant testing and pharmaceutical-grade nutritionals.
- Getting your team on board to share the workload.
- Changing your image from a “tooth and gums only” provider to one who helps patients achieve a higher level of overall health and wellness.
A Wellness Center fits easily into your current office (no extra square footage required) and integrates smoothly into your current treatment protocols.
