Chairside Connection: Path to Health treatment integration toolset

May 29, 2024
Cindy Sensabaugh with Philips joins Dr. Pam Maragliano-Muniz to discuss some of the resources Philips offers for dental professionals to share with patients to encourage compliance.

Philips Oral Healthcare is offering a comprehensive toolset called Path to Health that supports dental professionals in their patient education efforts. The company encourages open conversations between dental pros and patients about patients’ oral health goals, and provides all involved with an actionable plan to achieve those goals.

Since patients carry most of the load regarding their oral health, it’s important for them to be knowledgeable and to feel equipped with devices that will help them maintain their oral health at home. This toolset helps guide those recommendations.

There are several unique materials available in the Philips toolset, including information patients can take home to help them remember what they discussed in the office. Cindy said the toolset is more than just another patient education piece: it will truly help with patient behavior change.

Check out what Cindy and I discussed, and why this toolset may be just the thing your practice needs. I challenge all of us to jump in with both feet and give the Path to Health toolset a try!
