Do you really know how to best serve an anxious patient? What about one who resists reclining, or the person who can’t turn their head, or is confined to a wheelchair?

And what is the best way to respond to the patient who gives you a big eye roll while you’re just trying to do your job? No one ever said practicing dental hygiene would be easy, but if you’ve been in practice more than 5 minutes, you know these real-world challenges exist. Who wants to be annoyed with a patient? No one! Learn how to decrease these frustrating experiences with creative accommodations where you can provide better treatment that does not leave you feeling so depleted.
