About The Lucy Hobbs Project


The national, long-term program, powered by Benco Dental and 10,000 members strong, helps women in dentistry use their voices as a force for change. Named for Dr. Lucy Hobbs Taylor, the woman who, in 1866, became the first American female to earn a degree in dentistry, this Project aims to bring women together from all facets of the dental profession – dentists, dental assistants, hygienists, receptionists, sales representatives and others. Free to join, it supports the following pillars: innovation, networking, and giving back. To learn more, or to sign up for The Lucy Hobbs Project®, visit: http://thelucyhobbsproject.com/

During “Win the Insurance Game,” Leslie Icenogle invites dental teams to maximize reimbursement for services rendered by discussing accurate coding and required supporting documentation, prompt filing and follow-up, common posting errors, inaccuracies in explanation of benefits and improper denials.

Kelli Swanson Jaecks, RDH, MA presents “Cannabis Culture and Dentistry” and “Oxygen, Please!”  The first discussion focuses on a rapid change in recent years in both public opinion and reported science concerning marijuana use and its effects.  The course will take a closer look at the changing Cannabis Culture:

What is the difference between hemp, and marijuana, THC and CBD? What about medical vs. recreational use? Methods of ingesting marijuana will be discussed, with their effects on the oral cavity. What are preventive oral health strategies dental professionals can utilize to best protect patients?

Screenshot 2019-05-01 17.38.32Jaecks’ second presentation aims to empower health care professionals to make positive choices for their physical and mental selves, resulting in better care for the patients they serve. Taking a cue from the American Nurses Association’s campaign Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation™ , health promotion strategies from this course will center on four focus areas: physical activity, sleep, nutrition, and quality of life. Healthy practitioners better ensure healthier patients.

In “The Fearless Dental Team,” Kay Huff, RDA asks the vital questions:

Are you afraid that your patients or your team won’t accept change? Does every decision your office makes revolve around the “what-ifs”?

She then reaffirms the concepts that it is vital to have a vision and share it. It’s OK to ask Screenshot 2019-05-01 17.41.30your patients for money and get paid. It’s OK not to work 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

She directs attendees to “Push fear aside and discover the success and benefits of a Fearless Dental Team.”

Unfortunately, our experience in dental coaching has shown that the majority of dental teams are struggling, dealing […]
