How to Use the 5 Love Languages to Improve Team Communication with Dr. Trent Redfearn

How to Use the 5 Love Languages to Improve Team Communication with Dr. Trent Redfearn

Did you know that the five love languages can help improve your relationships with your team and your patients?

Dr. Trent Redfearn is a dentist with a unique skillset. He attended the University of Missouri-Columbia and graduated with a B.S. in chemical engineering. He then attended the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Dentistry, receiving his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) in 2008. Since then, he has done extensive training in communication and teaches dental teams how to strengthen and improve their relationships using the five love languages. Dr. Trent Redfearn is also the Founder of Dentovation Academy of Dental Assisting.

The five love languages include words of affirmation, acts of service, receiving gifts, quality time, and physical touch. Not everyone responds to these five love languages in the same way. Some people value gifts while others prefer to build relationships by spending quality time with someone they want to connect with. By understanding each of the five love languages further, you can use that knowledge to build both your personal and professional relationships – including the connections you build with patients in your dental practice.

Virtual Solutions to Help Assist Through COVID-19

Virtual Solutions to Help Assist Through COVID-19

In this trying time when the world is faced with so much uncertainty and fear, it’s more important than ever that we come together as a community – even if that means we can only interact virtually.

The ADA (American Dental Association) is recommending that dentists nationwide postpone elective procedures in response to the spread of the coronavirus disease. This is said to last for at least three weeks, but it may continue longer depending on the development of COVID-19.

In response, I decided to reach out to Michael Anderson, the Co-Founder of Wonderist Agency, a full-service dental marketing agency. Wonderist Agency delivers the best in dental marketing, with a smile. They also specialize in virtual consults, which is something that many dental practices are likely to shift towards during this difficult time to connect with patients and team members alike.

Michael and I discuss how dental practices can leverage virtual solutions to help assist through COVID-19 such as hosting virtual consultations with patients, training team members, and how to cope with the impact that COVID-19 will have on things like patient care, team training and revenue.

 

Virtual Solutions to Help Assist Through COVID-19

 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • How to leverage virtual consults
  • How to determine what cases are classified as emergencies
  • How you can be there for your team and patients during trying times like this
  • Everything you need to know about hosting virtual consults
  • How to use Wonderist’s virtual consult software at no cost
