Megan Fairhall running tooth whitening training courses onlineNews
Posted by: The Probe 19th October 2020
Megan Fairhall has been successfully running tooth whitening training course for a number of years, but has launched them online to help DH&DT’s 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 all the theory behind teeth whitening, Megan talks her peers 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 chair-side whitening with using Philips ZOOM! Her ultimate aim is to ensure attendees finish the course confident to play their role in teeth whitening procedures in their practice. Megan also shares her expertise on marketing and social media to empower each delegate to create their own marketing plans and maximise the newly acquired skills to attract new patients.
The online day course will run via a live Zoom link which course delegates receive upon signing up.
The online courses are being run in association with Philips Oral Healthcare and are designed to educate Dental Hygienists and Dental Therapists. Next dates for 2020 are Saturday 14th November and Saturday 5th December. Each delegate will also receive a Philips Sonicare electric toothbrush and a certificate for six hours eCPD.
The course costs £299.00.
Megan will be taking 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 patients up. Megan will also be looking 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 that tooth whitening treatment can be legally and safely provided to the prescription of a dentist does not mean that all necessary steps linked to tooth whitening are incumbent on them to carry out. Dental hygienists and therapists can carry out the whitening itself under the prescription from a dentist and treatment coordinators, dental nurses, practice managers, receptionists, can 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”.
