Episode : How to Calibrate Your Hygiene Team

Podcast Description

Dr. Dave Moghadam joins Kiera to discuss getting your hygiene team on the same page and at the same point of understanding. He shares his approach, and goes deeper into the following:

  1. Gather all information and establish a flow of procedure

  2. Hold a longer meeting for your hygiene team to review and add their own ideas

  3. Allow a period of follow-up for questions

  4. Transition into monthly or quarterly meetings to continually update

Dr. Moghadam utilized the Dental A-Team’s hygiene course to help him come up with this approach to calibrate his hygienist team.
