Course Overview:
This Spanish course is designed to help you become familiar with important vocabulary that is needed to efficiently communicate periodontal / pediatric treatment plans and increase education. Focus is centered on explaining treatment plans in detail, relaying important post op instructions, oral hygiene instructions, educating about periodontal disease, and other basic vocabulary that will help you understand your patient and help them understand you throughout the appointment. You will not be fluent after this course. However, your ability to communicate dental language will greatly improve and your ability to understand your patients will improve as well. Interesting cultural facts will also be presented throughout the series. No Spanish experience is necessary. You will still benefit from this refresher if you took Spanish in high school or college. Attendees of this course are encouraged to participate in the Spanish for the Dental Professional: Introductory Course though it is not required.

Course Objectives:

  • Aid dental team members (primarily general dentists, pediatric dentists, periodontists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants) improve communication and rapport with patients whose first language is Spanish
  • Improve pronunciation by learning phonics
  • Increase awareness of cultural norms within the Spanish speaking communities that may affect dental treatment
