RETP – Rapid Efficient Treatment Planning - Restoring Excellence

RETP - Rapid Efficient Treatment Planning with Dr Lincoln Harris

As a general dentist, the great challenge of treatment planning is the sheer variation in patient presentation.

  • Discover how to engage with the patient to find those that just want simple pain relief, those that want basic care, and those that want perfection.
  • How to sort through the patients presenting with tooth ache requesting an extraction, versus those who are willing to spend on root canal therapy and a crown.
  • How to make sure we don’t miss those that present with toothache, but would be keen to have the loss of vertical dimension restored with 14 crowns and some orthodontics.

What people are saying...

Great, approachable, knowledgeable, "real", funny and entertaining.

Dr Sienna Pat

Very enjoyable 2 days. I learned to first get the goal and provide solutions to meet it. Great to network with other top dentists from around the world. Opens your eyes to the work you could be doing.

Tom Brannen

RETP was great!I learned a lot ,it was not boring or too technical or clinical .Everything was made to be easily understandable ,interactive and fun.Lincoln is a great speaker and talented doctor .

I learned valuable techniques very easy to use in daily practice as well as recognising my challenges and turning them into opportunities . I appreciated learning how to get definite growth,higher treatment acceptance which is less stress for clinicians. "Do not treatment plan for the dentist,treatment plan for the patient" Also start small if patient can't start big .Which we already kinda do ,but maybe not enough and not with the right approach .

Doria E Roman

An entertaining and enlightening course focused on communicating treatment plans to patients. I learned how to discuss costs/budgets delicately with patients. Discussing a number of clinical cases helped gain an insight into different treatment planning methodologies

Haroon Sher

RETP is a great well rounded and interactive course. A must if the dentist wants to be able to succinctly diagnose and treatment plan appropriately. I learnt not to project dentist's fears and emotions on to a patient, not to look away when quoting cost and that the anxious patients once calmed are the best patients. When Lincoln introduced himself and came across as a down to earth dentist just like the rest of us. The information provided that I took on being applied to 'real world' scenarios in the practice I work seamlessly helping me become more effective at discussing information which saves time.

It was a great course, the questions asked by the attendees added even more value and would have been great to have a frequently asked questions section.
