Unaware to Aware: We Can’t Do This Alone
Boyd Simkins, DDS

July 8 @ 9:00 pm - 10:00 pm EDT

We need to understand it is not just the parent of the child sitting in our chair that needs to recognize there could be an issue. It’s important to meet our patients/parents on a level that resonates. What about the person that sits across from us, or in the business office during these interactions. We will take a dive into how that has transpired in my office: my journey, mistakes, and successes.
