I’ve been a dental hygienist for 11 years and was a dental assistant prior to that. When I began working at my current office, I was intrigued yet nervous about the training I was about to receive and wondered if my knowledge and skills would be up to par. After meeting with GEM Dental Experts, I instantly felt that I would be challenged, which I’m always willing to accept. But I also felt, for the first time in my dental career, that instead of being criticized and questioned, I was supported and encouraged to be the best I could be. The GEM team has greatly improved my dental knowledge and increased my confidence as a person and a professional, which is priceless. I cannot explain how grateful I am to have had the privilege of working with GEM Dental Experts.
The revenue in our hygiene department went up 100% in less than a year with GEM Dental Experts’ evidence-based methodology. The consultants’ ability to motivate, create change and integrate sustainable systems and processes not only improved office culture but took patient care to a whole new level along with our bottom line. Gabriele is a great teacher and mentor!
After implementing GEM’s nonsurgical periodontal training program into our office, we instantly saw results in our patient’s health and in hygiene revenue. The systems and processes they put in place were evidence-based, easy to work with and ensured future tracking of treatment and results. Our hygiene team members have become leaders in providing a high level of periodontal care and, as a result, patient loyalty, referral base and the compliments (even from our most difficult patients), have increased substantially.
About seven months ago, I went through an extensive and intensive 30 hours of training with GEM Dental Experts. I wondered sometimes if I could learn everything, but by the end, all the pieces of the puzzle came together for me. Before the training, I was guessing and using anecdotal experience to develop a treatment plan for my patients. I learned that sometimes they were not always the right plans. Now it is easy to provide an optimum treatment plan for all my patients because everything I recommend is based on scientific evidence—I no longer need to guess. Thanks again to GEM Dental Experts, as they taught me to be more efficient, and I am a better hygienist because of them.
GEM Dental Experts played a positive role in the unprecedented growth experienced at our office. GEM’s deep knowledge, especially in all areas related to hygiene, allowed us to calibrate, streamline and document necessary changes to our systems and protocols. The ‘calibration’ of our hygiene department impacted the entire office and GEM’s depth of knowledge and training played a huge part in bringing the entire team up to speed.

GEM Dental has significantly improved the success of my practice. Gabriele and her teams effort not only exceeded our expectations in developing clinical excellence but in the overall teams confidence.
This workshop was an awesome opportunity for me to relearn and unlearn horrible hygiene habits that I’ve developed over the years. It really gave me the knowledge to become a better clinician.
Gabriele is truly incredible! As a new grad, it was daunting to participate in one of GEM’s workshops. However, she made me feel not only reassured but confident. I am excited to embark on my hygiene future/journey and feel aligned with my coworkers at my new office. She is super personable, knowledgeable and feel reassured that I can seek her advise, guidance and mentorship.
Gabriele has completely changed my outlook on the dental hygiene profession! I now feel motivated to implement “best practices” comprehensively, now that I know what that looks like.
