“The Wonderful World of Children…Marvin’s Garden of Tips” and “Professional Success…It’s All About Attitude”
Marvin Berman, D.D.S.
(Dental Hygienists, Dental Assistants & Administrative Personnel of registered dentists for this course are invited to attend as long as space permits. See tuition charge on registration form.)
The Wonderful World of Children…Marvin’s Garden of Tips will draw from Dr. Berman’s over four decades of experience to guide you through an intensely personal, no-nonsense review of everything you want to know about clinical pediatric dentistry…including parent and child management, local anesthesia, pulpotomies and crowns, composites vs. amalgam, fluoride and sealants and even diet and nutrition. Bring radiographs and models of your cases and your problems. Not a lecture but a meaningful give and take.
Professional Success…It’s All About Attitude addresses bedside and chair-side manners as disappearing phenomena. Patients anticipating and undergoing medical care are often not conversant with the medical jargon nor are they cognizant nor do they care about the technical details that are involved in the treatment we provide. But they do know whether a doctor is kind and patient, has a sense of humor and if he or she is listening to them. Above all, patients know if the attitudes that the doctors and assistants exhibit reveal a sense of caring. Using his compilation of videotapes and his unique approach to dealing with adults and children in stressful situations, Dr. Berman will illustrate the methodology involved in establishing positive rapport with patients while performing such tasks as administering local anesthesia, performing operative procedures and just plain talking. A don’t miss learning experience for all members of the dental team.
