A typical professional appointment is packed with “must do” procedures. Clinicians can be reluctant to add another procedure to an already cramped schedule. Unless there is perceived value, patients can hesitate to agree to adding another service. Is there an easy, efficient way to improve the services we offer?

Basic salivary testing is simple and provides a more robust risk profile. The results are scientific and based on actual salivary chemistry. Testing results create more targeted patient conversations, improve patient engagement and treatment acceptance, and provide more predictable health outcomes. Better services support patient health, shine a spotlight on clinician value, and grow practice revenue.
