Dialogue: Advising your patients

One of your patients presents to your dental practice with serious oral problems and he confesses he likes one of the foods/drinks in the slideshow below.

Read the slideshow: Foods your dentists avoid, then pick one of the types of foods/drinks your patient exaggerates with, and WRITE A SHORT DIALOGUE of your communication with this patient (5-10 replies), advising him/her why he/she should avoid that item and what to do instead.

Manifest consideration, politeness for your patient's decisions but be enough convincing about what is good and bad for his/her teeth in the long-run.
