Hiring a Medical Nail Technician, a medically-trained and state licensed Nail Technician, can enhance your income, relieve you of non-invasive services, and bring in new patients.
Robert Spalding, DPM, treats many patients in his practice who have developed foot problems that likely have been caused by poor infection control in nail salons. Instead of condemning the technicians and industry, however, he began to train and advocate for their performance of good infection control practices. In doing so, he began to see the potential for having trained nail professionals in podiatry offices.
The Medical Nail Technician Program of Medinail Learning Center is the result of this advocacy and trains nail technicians in the skills and information to work effectively in podiatry offices.
Following are some interesting materials to support the hiring of an MNT in a podiatry practice:
