Doug Klein DDS, Grandville MI
When it comes to choosing a dentist in Grandville, Michigan, we know that you have a lot of options. But at Klein Dentistry, we do things a little bit differently.
We don’t just meet your high expectations, we exceed them, and that include continuing education through Spear seminars, workshops, lessons, and more.
Spear, a continuing education service for dentists, is a way for professionals to grow in confidence and competence through curriculum that improves the clinical and practice-related skills of their entire team. More than 8,000 dentists take part — including Dr. Klein — and can attest that it’s more than just a library of courses.
Spear provides its members with the means to grow not only their practice, but by providing resources for staff training and patient education that includes:
This is the core of the Spear Online experience, as members have access to more than 700 video-based dental continuing education lessons on a wide variety of topics, from understanding dental materials to how to handle negative feedback from a patient. Grouped together in courses, these lessons are developed and taught by some of the profession’s leading clinicians and specialists.
Dr. Klein depends on his highly-trained staff, and Spear provides additional training to ensure the entire team is aligned to the same message. From assistants and hygienists to front office staff members, there are courses individualized to their specific responsibilities.
According to Spear, “there are three components to have in a successful practice: a knowledgeable clinician, a well-trained team, and patients who understand the value of dentistry.” They help you understand that value through Spear Patient Education videos that show you how a procedure is done and the consequences of inaction. Dr. Klein can then focus on the “why,” which may be different for each patient. We use them throughout our website!
Spear faculty developed Pathways as a way for dentists like Dr. Klein to get involved in a carefully curated, topic-based learning experience. Dentists can choose topics like “Material Selection” and “Treatment Planning for Wear,” and complete the courses to earn credits — just another way to enhance your patient experience through increased knowledge!
Dr. Klein in Grandville, Michigan, is dedicated to constantly increasing his knowledge about his profession, offering you — his valued patient — the highest possible level of care.
