    Chapter 3 ADA workbook Communication Skills: Telephone techniques.
  2. Exercies
    • 1. List the elements of the communication process that are linked together to complete the exchange of information.
    • The process of communication includes reading, writing,
    • speaking, and listening. During the process, five elements
    • link together to complete the exchange of information
    • between the sender and the receiver:
    • ¥ The sender has an idea that must be shared w/ another person or group.
    • ¥ The idea is translated into a message.
    • ¥ The message is placed on a medium or channel.
    • ¥ The medium is sent by various channels and is received by the receiver.
    • ¥ The receiver reacts to the message and provides feedback.
  3. 2. Verbal messages can be divieded into TWO catagories. Name each catagorey and give two examples.
    • Verbal messages (messages using words) can be divided
    • into two categories: spoken and written. Spoken verbal
    • messages may be delivered face to face or transferred
    • electronically (by telephone, voice mail, or video conferencing). Written communication includes letters, memos, faxes, e-mails, newsletters, and several other forms of printed information.
  4. 3.What positive nonverbal messages can be sent from a member of the dental health care to the patient.? List the THREE examples given in the book.
    • EX 1.Smiles always communicate a + thought. used to ease a patient's apprehension, send a friendly greeting to a child, or acknowledge the arrival of a patient.
    • Smiles can even be ÒseenÓ over the telephone because they change the tone of your voice. When you are busy on the telephone or are involved in a professional conversation with another team member, a quick wave or smile acknowledges that you will be with the patient as soon as possible.
    • EX 2. Touch can convey a message of warmth, reassurance, understanding, & caring. Patients will recognize the message when they are lightly touched or patted on the shoulder, back of the hand, or arm. Although some patients will welcome the gesture, others will not. Use this method cautiously.
    • EX 3. Sincerity Patients can recognize sincerity when members of the dental healthcare team remove barriers. Barriers can take the form of desks and other objects that come between the team member and the patient. For example, during
    • a consultation, when the dentist sits behind a desk, he or she is unable to convey openness. If the desk is removed, patients may feel as though they are on the same level as the dentist and that one is not superior to the other. This allows patients to participate in the conversation on an equal status with the dentist.
  5. 4. Interpersonal communication takes place when the sender and the receiver are exchanging information in real time. Match the type of transfer (typical to a dental practice ) w/ the following statements.
    • ** Patient to Dental healthcare team. **Dental healthcare team to patient
