New patient: 1.5 hours
Prophy recare: 45 mINUTES
Perio recare: 1 HOUR
SRP per quad/2 quads/ full mouth: DependsTravis CampbellParticipant@drtcampbellgmail-comMay 18, 2018 at 11:12 am #1403
New adult patient: 1.5 hours (2 if they tell us on phone they have lots of problems or it has been 10 years since last visit) – almost always start PX or at least 2 quads perio on that visit.
Prophy or PM (with exam a/o xrays): 1 hour
Prophy or PM only: 40 minutes
Child NP: 1 hour
Child recare: 40 min
SRP: most cases 15 minutes per D4342 and 30 minutes per D4341Charlotte SmiledParticipant@charlottecharlottesmiled-comMay 20, 2018 at 8:30 pm #1405
New Patient goes with Doctor first and then I get one hour
Prophy on a six month visit gets one hour
Prophy or perio maintenance on a 3 month schedule gets one hour
Children get 1/2 hr
SRP is up to me but usually 1 hour for 1 or 2 quads
(all of this is up to my description. i.e.: 6 months visit with minimal calculus and doesn't need X-rays or exam I'll give myself 30 minutes to accommodate the next person that may need a full set, FMP, and exam. That's the beauty of pre scheduling your own calendar chairside)Lani McBethParticipant@lanimcbethgmail-comMay 25, 2018 at 2:47 pm #1415
I have the opportunity to spend at least 1 hour with my adult patients. Usually 40 minutes with children under 13. I can schedule as much time as I need for SRP patients. I am finding that as a clinician, if I want to complete a full prophy and educate on OH, Nutrition, Dental needs, do a complete review of the health history, less than a 60 minute appointment all this is not possible. I feel it is a part of my license to provide high quality care for my patients.
