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...

What a fantastic and personal chap Lincoln is ......plus his lovely wife and team.

For a young dentist, Lincoln is a huge source of information. For an old codger like me, it is very reassuring to see that I am doing the majority of my dentistry as it should be and it gives me an alternative to others which may need rejigging.

The moment Lincoln started the course on the first day....... Lincoln's drive, enthusiasm, knowledge and delivery of the course made me realise that he is as he is. Just like Marmite....you either love it or hate it.

Made me realise that what I am doing at the moment is in parts excellent/good and in parts needs regigging. Will let me go back to my Practice to change a few minor things which I do everyday in my Practice.

Nice location in the Southeast to get to as I live in West Sussex, 15 miles from the south coast. Lovely refreshments and food.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge and skills. I like your realistic and pragmatic approach to patient care.

Dr Dee-Anna Luong

Attending RETP gave me different perspectives on daily activities for routine and complicated treatment. Thank you for a great 2 days!

Dr Sagnik Sengupta

Doing Lincoln's course has been a turning point in my career. Communication, treatment planning, clinical hints/tips all in one. Would recommend to anyone who want to move from single tooth dentistry to multi units or full mount dentistry.

Dr Wei Shen

Lincoln speaks with humor and complete honesty. You will be entertained and learn what you are doing right and what you may want to change. When I found out I do many things correctly, it relieved some insecurities. Thank you
