Speaker: Dr. Jean Martin
Topic: Storytelling in Clinical Practice
We learn best through stories. Clinical cases, when framed as stories, allow us to more effectively teach and inspire other dentists, our staff, and our patients. To facilitate publishing your clinical article, a step by step outline will be presented showing how to write and submit articles for publication. Introducing a change at your office is more effective when staff can be engaged through stories that illustrate both the why and the how of the upcoming change. Diagnosis is the story discovered through clinical examination, as well as the review of the medical, and dental history. Using the language of stories to explain a patient’s oral health and diagnosis will impact their understanding and treatment acceptance. Patients often need to tell us their story. As we listen to them, we gain insight to the necessary behavioral or treatment interventions they may need. Examples of all these applications will be presented, with an emphasis on preparing clinical articles for journal submission.
- Learn how to submit your article to a dental journal.
- Communicate more effectively with staff members when adopting new techniques, methods, or systems in your office.
- Better communicate clinical findings and recommendations to patients.
- Understand the importance of patients telling their stories to you.
