Why Your Involvement Matters
Of the millions of people suspected to have a sleep disorder in the United States alone, 80 percent of them remain undiagnosed and therefore untreated. Sleep disorders not only affect the quality of one’s sleep, but they are also associated with a variety of other chronic health concerns like heart disease and diabetes.
Your involvement matters. Whether you are a dentist or a doctor, you play a huge role in the quality of life for your patients—and that includes the quality of their sleep.
By investing the time and effort into screening, diagnosing, and treating sleep disorders, you prioritize the health and happiness of your patients as well as raise awareness for the importance of sleep.
Tips and Tricks for Running Your Practices
Providing great care for your patients goes beyond giving them quality treatment—it also includes creating good relationships with them. Building positive relationships with patients can help you form trust and loyalty with them, leading to improved customer retention and satisfaction.
By forming that bond with your patients, not only do you invest in the quality of their healthcare, but you also invest in the future of your practice. If you want to improve the quality of your relationships, consider doing the following:
- Take the time to get to know your patients
- Prepare for every appointment
- Listen well and be present
- Be prepared to provide culturally relevant care
- Communicate often and well, and follow up regularly
- Show empathy and maintain your composure
Not only will your patients appreciate your thoughtfulness and empathy, but so will you once you see improvements in the success of your practice.
