Several studies clearly show that patient cooperation is an important factor for treatment success. In order to maintain this cooperation throughout the process, it is important for the orthodontic clinic to promote positive patient attitude.
It is essential to convince patients of the need for orthodontics, to accompany them during treatment and to hold them responsible for their oral care on the long term.
To ensure patient cooperation, it is important to know how to convey the beneficial effects of the treatment, both in relation to health and to aesthetics, as well as to convince them that the treatment will improve their quality of life.
