Dr. Philip Weinstein is a Professor in Dental Public Health Sciences, Pediatric Dentistry, and Psychology at the University of Washington. He has been a funded NIH investigator his entire career and provides treatment to patients at the Dental Fear Research Clinic in Seattle, WA, which he co‐founded.
His recent research has shown the effectiveness of the MI approach in motivating mothers of high risk children. Recent evidence presented as the cover story in the issues of JADA by Dr. Weinstein and his colleagues, indicates that a simple, brief Motivational Interviewing (MI) approach worked to reduce caries, in high risk preschool children. He has written over 200 papers and four books, the most recent being, “Motivate your Dental Patients: A Workbook.”
Additional Details: This workshop is ideal for educators who want to make curriculum changes in the area of patient motivation, as well as clinicians interested in dental behavior sciences.
