Learn about ways your dental practice can become involved in the 10th Anniversary of Root Canal Awareness Week this March.
Our team at Professional Endodontics is pleased to join the American Association of Endodontists (AAE) in celebrating the 10th annual Root Canal Awareness Week, coming up March 27th to April 2nd, 2016. This is national effort to raise awareness for endodontic work and a special time for endodontists to work closely with their patients and community to educate others about the benefits of root canal treatments.
Root Canal Awareness week was developed for endodontists and dentists to work together to teach patients more about the important role endodontists play in dental health. Its purpose is to support endodontic work by dispelling myths about root canal treatments, to teach the public that root canals are nothing to be feared, and to build relationships among dental professionals.
How Can You Get Involved?
There are many ways dentists and endodontists can get involved in Root Canal Awareness Week. The AAE is currently offering a free PDF for dental professionals to share with patients or post in their office. To access the pdf, click here. This poster is designed to educate patients about the ways dental work is continually improving and the importance of seeing an endodontist for root canal treatments.
Another way to get involved in this important awareness effort is to actively discuss the benefits of endodontic work with patients throughout the month of March. This is important information to share at all times, and helps patients understand the options they have for saving their teeth in the event of a root canal. Help patients understand that there are very effective pain management options for endodontic procedures and teach them about the many benefits of root canal treatment versus extraction. Be mindful of any anxiety they may have about these procedures and address their concerns with clarity and empathy.
Build New Relationships
This is also a great opportunity to network within your local community to build relationships with other dental specialists. Take time to develop strong collaborative relationships with endodontists in your area to enhance your practice. Building a network of dental specialists is important for a general dentist practice because this enables them to provide support for their patients in situations they may otherwise be limited. This way patients understand that you have their best interest at heart and have peace of mind knowing their team of dental specialists is working together to ensure they receive the best care possible.
It is critical to educate patients about proper dental health. By understanding the importance of receiving care as early as possible and seeking out expert assistance from an endodontists, patients can ensure they get the best treatment and care possible for their root canal.
