CHARLOTTE, N.C., USA: As part of Dentsply Sirona’s continued pledge to create healthy practices for healthy smiles and drive practice recovery, the Dental Solutions Company has teamed up with the American Dental Association to provide ADA members access to free patient communication resources based on the ADA’s Return to Work Interim Guidance Toolkit.

Recognizing that patient safety and oral health education are top priorities in a world full of “new normals,” these digital resources, found in the ADA’s Patient Return Resource Center, are designed to support dental professionals in empowering their patients during this unprecedented time, according to a press release issued by Dentsply Sirona.

There is no need to stress if you’re using the right language to reassure patients, the press release said, you can let the toolkit do the talking for you.

The Patient Return Resource Center includes the following:

  • Patient prep visual guide.
  • Customizable social posts.
  • Text scripts.
  • Customizable email templates.
  • Patient FAQs.
  • Printable in-office signage.

Dentsply Sirona will provide practices with information about how to access these resources, as well as a safety window cling, the company press release said.

“As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, patients are looking at their own well-being differently — and may have questions when resuming their dental visits. It is important that we do not lose sight of their needs and concerns as part of our rebound and recovery efforts,” said Terri Dolan, Dentsply Sirona vice president chief clinical officer.

No matter where a practice is in recovery, these resources are specifically designed to meet all dentists’ current and future needs and will continue to be updated in the coming weeks, Dentsply Sirona said.

Accessing the patient return resource center is easy, fast and free for ADA members, the press release said. Go to dentsplysirona.com/patienttoolkit to be guided to the ADA resource center at ada.org/patienttoolkit. You can start communicating with confidence and accelerate your practice recovery today, the press release said.
