Your Team’s Life May Depend on It

 

You know what April is…Oral Cancer Awareness Month.  Oral cancer statistics are staggering: 

  • One person dies of oral cancer every hour of every day
  • Early detection can result in 80-90% survival rate
  • Only 43% survive when the disease is detected at a later stage

YOU are on the front lines of early detection and you never know…it might be a team members’ life you save. 

Join us on Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn for the #IHTeamScreen Challenge. Show your colleagues, co-workers and community you’re serious about early detection. 


Eva Grayzel, oral cancer survivor has created a simple, effective method for screening and patient communication resources. Check out digital images and appointment cards to show your patients you’re committed to early cancer detection. https://www.sixstepscreening.org/

It will be available for purchase until February 2 so if you’re interested, watch this quick video to see what the program looks like from the inside and then go over to periobootcamp.com and we’ll let you know when it’s ready for purchase.

This self-paced program is perfect for getting your team on the same page with a clear, written periodontal protocol and it offers CE credit for every participant in your practice.

“Our practice first worked with Inspired Hygiene nearly 10 years ago. The PPOB was an impactful first step in developing our periodontal protocol and it has grown from there. As we have added new hygienists to our team, watching these webinars is part of our onboarding process and a great way to introduce our perio program to new team members.”
