A Few Words from the Chair is a practical, timely way for dentists to build relationships, gain greater case acceptance from their patients, and create more fulfilling and lucrative practices.
In eight chapters, the author diagnoses the divisions between patients and dentists; describes some essential communication skills and techniques used by the best practitioners; and shows how dental care providers can better empathize with their patients. This guide helps providers create lasting win-win relationships with patients.
