Tip Tuesday: At a Loss for Words?

At a Loss for Words?

Q: As a hygienist how do I connect the dots for my patient?

A:  This is a great question! It’s important to ensure that every hygiene patient fills out a Sleep & Breathing Questionnaire! This plants a seed that you can reference back to when they’re in the chair.

Here’s how it goes! 

Review the sleep and breathing questionnaire like you would review health history.

Pick one or two items and talk about those with your patient. Remember, this is not a PEM, so keep it brief.

For example, consider saying something like, “I noticed you indicated that you experience chronic headaches, snoring, and even wake up feeling tired. Can you tell me more about that?”

Pass your patient to a doctor, who will review the next steps with them.

Pro Tip: Don’t forget to mention the ADA recommendation!

We want to thank all of the doctors and teams who attended the Airway Integration Tour in Denver, Dallas, and Salt Lake City.

During the tour, attendees were challenged to screen as many patients as they could as part of their training. As a collective, these providers did 832 screenings with VivoScore. Out of these screenings, 43% of patients had OSA. Even more exciting, they submitted 63 RXs!

We want to congratulate the following doctors and teams for submitting five or more RXs:

Dr. Christensen (Denver)

Dr. Crofoot (Salt Lake City)

Dr. Kraft (Salt Lake City)

Dr. Simkins (Salt Lake City)

Dr. Peterson (Salt Lake City)

We will be sending you five VivoScore Rings for attending the AIT and submitting five patient RXs
