A “Best Book” for dentists and team members to help them provide exceptional, rewarding care for their dental patients. The 21st century has arrived - seemingly with the speed of light. There have been major changes in dentistry and society in the 21st century. These changes challenge all people in dentistry. Many dentists and team members are seeking a more fulfilling way of practicing dentistry in these troubled, challenging times.
The current crises in dentistry and health care are leading many patients (and dentists) to rediscover the importance of altruism and caring in health care. These patients will aggressively seek out dental practices that manifest caring doctor-patient-team relationships. In a Spirit of Caring Revisited, Understanding and finding meaning in the doctor-patient relationship in the 21st Century will help dentists and team members become one of these practices.
Lynn D Carlisle, DDS, the author of this newly updated and revised version of In a Spirit of Caring, believes: “It is a book for new and veteran practitioners seeking a more fulfilling, rewarding way of practicing dentistry. It will help readers discover or re-discover the timeless truths about understanding and finding meaning in caring doctor-patient-team relationships.”
This way of practicing is called relationship-based dentistry. The at times controversial book includes six bonus articles like “101 things to do In a Spirit of Caring”, and many other practical ways to help dental practices optimize a spirit of caring for their patients. It also has links to relevant articles on the In a Spirit of Caring web site.
