Dental Patients Help To Drive Dental Practice Revenue Up

Welcome to the first Oraspa™ blog!
Beginning in 1986, for the first 10 years dentists thought I was crazy. “A Dental Spa, what’s that?!” After working with rhythmic movement and creating the comprehensive extra-oral cancer exam, adding the science of essential oils, and a music therapist who thought this was the greatest thing since dental floss, the birth of the Dental Spa began. Throughout the years, the dentists that I worked with trusted my competency as a hygienist and as a researcher. They knew I did my homework and executed everything clinically above excellence. As I developed the technique and environment and learned about the various reasons for anxiety in the dental office, this all made sense to me. Why not create a relaxing atmosphere in a highly anxious environment?
The patients immediately took to the procedure during their prophy. So many were eager to help and aid in suggestions on comfort. They couldn’t wait for their next cleaning to see what I was doing next that was new! They began to tell their friends and co-workers and then they would call the office for their Dentalspa treatment. The dentists were still unsure of patient acceptance. Once I treated the dentist, he couldn’t believe it, he didn’t want to get out of the chair.
Then a little bit of jealousy set in, why were the patients so much more receptive to treatment in my room? Who cares?! It was weird. He was getting new patient referrals, revenue was up, patients LOVED the DentalSpa and were proud that he offered this at no charge….what in the world? I contend because they were relaxed and trusted the hygienist with her recommendation.
Nevertheless, today and 20 years later he is laughing all the way to the bank.
Moral of the story: Trust your employees to shine at what they do best, it only reflects positively on YOU! Support their efforts and you will reap the rewards!

Franchise Model for Oraspa

After graduating from the Oraspa Certification Course, Oraspa Therapists and their dentists have been so enthusiastic about being connected with Oraspa and our philosophies. It is the future of the patient-driven services that we should be providing our patients. They deserve it and appreciate it and the dentists associated with Oraspa are seeing the fruits of their labor. They want more!
Oraspa has developed the Level Two Certification Course that provides business training and advanced techniques in The DentalSpa. Secondly, per demand, we have created The DentalSpa Dental Assistant Certification and The DentalSpa Team Retreat because dentists want to be intimately involved with Oraspa. Hygienists are interested in developing their own career outside and part time along with their clinical dental hygiene position in Oraspa. Oraspa has now created franchise opportunities for those that can't get enough and want to personalize the Oraspa brand in their office. We are so excited to be able to share what we already view as a successful part of the dental practice, probably the most memorable portion of the dental visit. With franchising Oraspa, you can hold your own DentalSpa Certification Courses, do lunch and learns, exhibit at small and large conferences. Speak, teach, train and write about the invincible technique in your own location or take it on the road!
