Precision dental communication training gives dentists an opportunity to master the full range of communication skills needed to have treatment plans accepted, generate referrals from grateful patients, receive outstanding reviews and to prevent and manage problems. The heart of this training is Slesnick Master Class, a comprehensive, online training program. This is not an academic course. It's specifically designed to allow dentists to quickly bring their new skills into practice with their own patients. A description of the seven modules is listed below. We also offer training projects that include individual and/or small group Zoom training with our communication coaches. All coaches are current or past dental school faculty who’ve received specialized training in precision communication. Groups/DSO’s partner with Precision dental communications in different ways depending on their objectives. Possibilities include: Rescue Projects - Losing dentists is expensive. We work with high-potential, underperforming dentists to mitigate this loss. Typically dentists who learn communication skills earn more money, are happier and are less inclined to leave. Jumpstart Projects - Mediocrity is hard on the dentists and the group. By teaching dentists superior communication skills, we are often able to move them up to the next level. All-star Projects - Even high-performers can become better if they learn excellent communication skills. They can also learn how to mentor their colleagues. On-site workshops - While stand-alone workshops rarely generate sustained improvement, they have value as part of a broader training program.





Dentists Who Are Elite
Communicators Drive Growth.

Dentists are the lifeblood of large groups and DSO’s and growth is only possible to the extent that dentists perform. And no dentist can perform at a high level without superior communication skills.
