Are all your hygienists speaking the same language?


All of us here at Inspired Hygiene would like to wish you a very Happy and Prosperous New Year!

As we do every year, the IH Team assembled for a week-long training and planning meeting in December.  This time, we all met up in Charleston, SC to share a big house right on the beach.  We teamed up and you might say we had a ‘cook off’; as it turns out, we all have great talent in the kitchen.  The menu ranged from homemade egg flower soup and fluffy egg casserole to shrimp and grits and some amazing kabobs.

We participated in team learning activities, curriculum development and planning for a fantastic 2015!  We are very excited to have each of you; our valuable clients, friends and colleagues share this New Year with us!  This year will see the launch of our brand new hands on courses and doctor discovery days!  Stay tuned for more information.

At the close of our meetings, we are always reminded of just how powerful and productive a meeting can be when everyone is on the same page and has the same goal in mind. 

Doctors, Hygienists and Office Managers alike, frequently ask us how to keep the momentum and enthusiasm of training alive.  The answer is powerful and productive monthly Hygiene meetings!  And here’s the good news, our New Year’s Gift to you, you won’t have to plan any of these meetings.  We’ve done that for you!

You might remember last year we launched our first ‘12 Months of Hygiene Meetings’ system.  This year we’ve updated it to help you keep those monthly hygiene meetings interactive and productive.

Rachel and I invite you to join us for the Mastermind Call this month where we will be discussing how to get the most out of your Hygiene Team Meetings.  You don’t want to miss it.

Are all your Hygienists speaking the same Language?
Effective Hygiene Department Meetings

with Inspired Hygiene Coaches,
Rachel Wall, RDH, BS and Kim Miller, RDH, BS

How many times have you heard the following…

“I don’t know what happened?  We used to do that! 

Somewhere along the way we just stopped doing it!”

…from a team member or doctor when it comes to a protocol or system that you had in place, but is no longer being followed?   Believe it or not, our best intention to keep protocols in place is not always enough.  It’s in the best interest of your patients, your team and yourself to set aside specific time on a monthly basis to review and tune up your protocols, while refining your treatment and clinical philosophy.  It’s essential that all wheels on the bus are turning in the same direction.

During this call, Rachel and Kim will discuss tried and true ways to help you keep your Hygiene Department on track to reach your goals and benchmarks during the New Year!

On this call you will learn:

  • Who should be involved in the meetings
  • Who should be in charge of the meetings
  • What types of hands on exercises should be reviewed
  • What topics and protocols should be reviewed
  • Tips for staying on the cutting edge
