Is this what you were told by your doctor? Improve perio production or else? You can treat patients for perio if they do in fact have perio. You can’t fabricate bone loss, probe depths and calc on a patient. Letting patients go with undiagnosed perio is one thing but you can’t (shouldn’t) get in trouble for your perio production if you are already doing SRP and perio maintenance on the ones who need it.

Rdh88 is correct. And if you are expected to exaggerate probing depths it’s time to look for another job!

Another point to make is that you cannot get reimbursed from insurance if you do not prove that they need the srp. I would not want to have to tell a patient that their insurance company was not going to pay after all that work.

This was all out if the office managers mouth. We have many patients that are 3 or 4 MRC as a result of the other hygienist whose been there for 6 years. From my understanding through her, the previous hygienist wasn’t thorough in her scaling and as a result many patient had to be put on 3 or 4 MRC but not DS/RP and perio maintenance.

My biggest question though is, what percentage of your office is perio maint?

I would say about 20% of our daily schedule is comprised of perio maintenance.

I can not find the original question, but when we started doing perio charts annually for every patient we had a catch up time of site specific perio..but now that we have gotten through a few year it seems we are in a maintenance plateau. We have about 20% if patience on perio maintenance .
