Season 4: Case Acceptance starts off with a bang as Dr. George Hariri updates us on everything from student loans to practice ownership to the changes he has made and the massive results he is seeing.
It turns out that recruiting your hygienist as the first line presenter of treatment can have a massive payoff, especially when you empower them with your philosophy of care and take time to build feedback loops. When you add intraoral photography to this and your team takes ownership of the process, it becomes a virtuous cycle of more consistent diagnosis and case acceptance.
