About The Oral Health and Wellness Group
The Oral Health and Wellness Group was established to partner with dentists to help treat periodontal and systemic disease. It’s been more than twenty years since the dental field has seen a new periodontal maintenance program. Our new maintenance and management program known as The Inflammatory Disease Protocol (“IDCP”) was developed by Dr Herbert Bader (Lecturer in Periodontology at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine), one of the original key creators of the first perio programs in the USA. The program which has produced an average 25% instant revenue return to dental offices also provides new modules that greatly enhance patient care and case acceptance.
OH&WG aims to not only change the approach of perio disease control by offering a unique program, but to deploy a management team to optimize implementation, longevity, education and consistent growth. Dental offices who partner with us will find a unique mixture of specialists that believe that strong dentistry is about solid patient care, working smart and successful business protocol.
Looking back on our very short time of success, we still believe that the good hygiene department is the foundation to any dental office. With so many people coming to your office with some form of perio, let us help you rejuvenate this area of your practice and thus allowing you to maintain a consistent patient flow and increase.
