Ancient Greeks had two words for time: Chronos – meaning sequential time, and Kairos – meaning an opportune moment for change/action. Dentistry is returning to a new normal, our Kairos moment, with a call for the reduction of aerosol-producing treatments with minimally invasive procedures and home care options for patients.
Elevate Oral Care has long offered these treatments such as silver diamine fluoride, fluoride varnishes, and high-strength fluoride toothpastes. When your staff is ready for a safe in-person or web-based staff meeting to learn about these products and procedures, click here. If we come to your office we'll buy lunch. If you prefer live, interactive, web-based meetings, we can send samples and offer discounts on any purchases made during the meeting.
To help your office through this Kairos moment, starting in March, we invested in prevention-focused Continuing Education programs for dental professionals for a quicker recovery, along with supporting outreach, advocacy, and mission-based dentistry. It is what we call Elevating Care™.
Below you’ll find a collection of CE videos offering information to achieve Kairos in your practice. The topics are broad and well beyond the products we offer. They branch into patient-centered communications,
teledentistry, special needs, general, geriatric, and oral hygiene phases of dentistry.
We hope these CE offerings provide each of you training that launches us into a prosperous recovery.
