Click here for a personal note from Angie Stone, RDH, one of our contributors. You may identify with the struggles she has faced in trying to monitor her patients’ periodontal health.
Hi, my name is Angie Stone and I’ve been a practicing RDH for 12 years. I feel I am a competent clinician and that my patients receive the best possible periodontal monitoring and treatment, when necessary. However, I have not always felt that way.
While I have always known the importance of monitoring my patients’ periodontal health, I just wasn’t able to do it as effectively as I wanted. Charting took several minutes away from my actual treatment time and I could never really spare that time. Once I did chart, I needed to explain to the patient what all of those numbers meant! Most patients seemed to tune me out after about a minute. I just knew there must be a better way than what I had been taught in hygiene school. Then I discovered Florida Probe.
I incorporated Florida Probe into my periodontal protocol approximately two years ago. Now I am able to probe and chart patients when they need it and I can do it all alone! Not only that, Florida Probe’s software is interactive and engaging. This helps me to keep patients interested in learning about periodontal disease. My professional life and the lives of my patients have been improved through the use of Florida Probe.
I encourage you to spend some time clicking around the website to learn about all the ways the Florida Probe and Go-Probe Systems can advance your periodontal protocol and the health of your patients.
