Jan 21, 2022

On this TIPisode Andrew is joined by The Latina RDH, Amber Lovatos, RDH and fellow host in the A Tale of Two Hygienists Family! Amber and Andrew join us from Voices of Dentistry to highlight a tip regarding our Spanish speaking students, patients, and children of our patients. 


Episode Highlights: 

  • Students are not your translators
  • Children don’t interpret for parents 
  • Gauging Understanding 



“All patients deserve equal care.” 


“If you don’t understand the language, how are you truly measuring competency?” 


“Now I’m going to tell a child to interpret dentistry when adults don’t understand dentistry.” 


“Ask your patients open-ended questions.” 


“Your Spanish doesn't have to be perfect to build rapport with your patients.”
