Progressive Periodontal Disease Management for the Dental Hygienist





Course Type

Hygiene Excellence – What Are You Missing in Your Practice?

In this interactive, two module webinar series, our speaker will demonstrate how to effectively identify, evaluate, document, and treat Periodontal Disease chairside. It also will include how the Periodontist, GP, and RDH all work together to ensure positive outcomes when diagnosing and treating periodontal patients.

This highly requested series from Spring 2021 has been revamped and condensed into two modules for those attendees that missed the original live sessions. Attendees are able to register for both modules or individual modules a la carte as neither module is a prerequisite requirement for the other. This course is only available live during the scheduled date and time, it will not be recorded and shared for on-demand viewing.

MODULE 1: Progressive Periodontal Disease Management for the Dental Hygienist

Clinical research demonstrates multiple connections between Periodontal Disease and systemic health. However, most dental practices do not properly diagnose and treat periodontal disease. To fully maximize the dental hygienist’s role, it is essential to understand best practices in chairside and homecare innovations to prevent the progression of Periodontal Disease. The course is designed to equip the dental hygienist with practical approaches to current innovations to increase time management and optimize treatment outcomes. This course will also examine the clinical and diagnostic criteria required for proper identification and referral of periodontal cases along with examining how medical conditions and overall health directly affect treatment outcomes.
