Keynote speaker — We should warn you. The final RDH Under One Roof seminar on Aug. 7 is commonly referred to as the “wrap-up” seminar. Depending on how busy you were during the preceding 2½ days, you may be feeling, uh, a little tired. If so, Linda Talley will identify your state of mind, even if you’re in the back row. During the UOR wrap-up session, which is titled, “Non-Verbal Etiquette for the Hygienist,” attendees will quickly sense Talley’s expertise in reading body language. “If you really want to know what’s going on in your dental practice today, you must read body language — not only your patient’s body language but also your own. It says so much about you!” says Talley. Her presentation will help attendees “level the gender playing field” through nonverbal communication; learn techniques about body language positions that leaders use; change precognitive assumptions in dealing with staff and patients; and eliminate “victim” tactics that can lead to manipulation and anger.
