Never Take Your Healthy Teeth for Granted

When I was growing up, my mother took my three brothers and I to the dentist for check-ups every six months, and while my brothers all tended to need cavity fillings after the exams, I didn't get a cavity for almost my entire childhood! That led me to start feeling like my teeth were "invincible," and once I moved out of my parents house, I started skipping my trips to the dentist. I soon regretted it, because I developed a toothache that put me through the worst pain of my life. I went to visit the dentist, and he told me that not only did I need a root canal, but I also had two additional cavities to fill! I have since dedicated myself to good oral hygiene, and I decided to start a blog to share my oral health tips and encourage others to take care of their teeth!

How To Get More Out Of Your Online Tooth Whitening Training Course

If you want to begin offering tooth whitening services to your clients, then an online tooth whitening training course can help ensure you're doing everything as safely and correctly as possible. However, taking a skills class online comes with some unique challenges that you don't always face when taking in-person classes. If you want to get the most out of this experience and finish the class feeling really educated and confident, here are some tips to help you succeed.

Unpack and set up your whitening equipment first

Many times throughout the online class, your instructor will likely reference certain equipment and parts of that equipment. If you have not looked at your whitening equipment very much, you may have a hard time visualizing what the instructor is talking about. So, unwrap your equipment, get it set up, and familiarize yourself with it before you begin taking your online tooth whitening course. This way, you won't waste mental energy thinking "the lever arm — what's that?" when you could instead be focusing on the tip and advice that the instructor is offering.

Take the course on your days off

On a day when you're seeing patients and are really busy with your practice, it can be tough to really focus on the class. You may skim material without really absorbing what it says, or you may watch videos without really taking the time to digest the information the instructor is offering. If you take the tooth whitening class on your days off, when you don't have patients, then you can treat it like your job that day and really focus. Plus, when there are no patients in your dental office, you can feel free to go back and forth to your own whitening equipment for reference without disturbing anyone.

Don't be ashamed to ask questions

You might have years of experience as a dentist, but this technology and technique are new to you! It's totally okay if you do not understand something or if you find something unclear. It may feel strange to be back in a learning setting and asking questions, but try your best to embrace it. Online classes are better for everyone when the participants jump in and ask questions. This is especially true when the class is about tooth whitening, a procedure that can be performed in so many different ways with different nuances.

Taking an online tooth whitening class is a great way to improve the services you offer to clients. Just remember — you get out what you put in.
