Megan Fairhall has been successfully running tooth whitening training course for a number of years. But she has now launched them online to help DH&DTs get started with whitening treatments once they are able to return back to work after lockdown. Especially as whitening is a non AGP procedure, and therefore could help them reignite their patient engagement.
As well as covering the theory behind teeth whitening, Megan will talk through the practical aspects of the whitening journey. From gaining appropriate prescriptions through to managing individual patient cases and explaining aftercare. For both take-home and chairside whitening with Philips Zoom!
Her ultimate aim is to ensure attendees finish the course confident to play their role in teeth whitening procedures. Megan will also share her expertise on marketing and social media. This will empower each delegate to create their own marketing plans and maximise the newly-acquired skills.
The online course will run via a live Zoom link, which course delegates receive upon signing up. Each course is over two days; each day for three hours per session.
The new online courses run in association with Philips Oral Healthcare. The design is to educate dental hygienists and dental therapists. Each delegate will also receive a Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush and a certificate for six hours eCPD.
The course launches at an introductory price of £124.50 (50% off the normal rate).
As a course taster, Megan also has an upcoming webinar that is suitable for the whole dental team. During the free hour-long session on 7 July she will take a step-by-step guide to the process of whitening; sharing information about which treatments are available, taking impressions, making home whitening trays, the procedure itself, and finally following up with patients. Megan will also look at marketing and social media activities and how to attract patients through the digital channels.
Megan commented: ‘The business of tooth whitening makes most business sense when every member of the team gets involved. The fact tooth whitening treatment is legal and safe to provide under the prescription of a dentist does not mean that all necessary steps are incumbent on them to carry out.
‘Dental hygienists and therapists can carry out the whitening itself under prescription from a dentist – and treatment coordinators, dental nurses, practice managers, and receptionists can all actively contribute. This creates a collaborative sense of achievement, helps maintain good teamwork spirit, helps the dentist, and ultimately creates all the right ingredients to deliver a flawless experience to the patient.’
