Patient compliance to treatments that last over few weeks is tricky. GDT helps you keeping patients within your practice and improving your overall success. Here are some quick tricks to your patients:

Track treatment succes​

via outcome measurement tools (VAS score and ROM) to reassure your patients.

Schedule the next appointment​

Before patient leaves to establish a treatment pattern.
