Description

This course is designed for the general practitioner and/or their lead hygienist who are serious about advancing the periodontal health of their patients, the health of their team and their practice. It will demonstrate that saliva testing is a key factor in diagnosis of disease. A thorough understanding of the oral systemic link, complemented with the use of salivary diagnostics, provides an opportunity for significant professional and financial growth for your entire office. Featuring a series of case studies, you will see that practicing this way is 21st century periodontal care. A complete implementation system and a systematic process, including a series of patient educational materials, will be briefly outlined and offered for purchase. Utilizing this comprehensive approach you can radically transform your practice and demonstrate to your patients your true concern for their well being.

Objectives

Objectives
Increase the periodontal awareness of everyone in the office to enhance team/patient discussion and early disease detection. Feature case studies that show bacteria and genetic susceptibility testing (salivary diagnostics), and the benefits of both, in the care of active disease patients. Show the use of clinical adjuncts to control inflammation and the rate of clinical attachment loss. Make available a complete set of customizable patient educational materials and office support material to organize your entire periodontal program. Demonstrate language and techniques to explain to patients their own "periodontal story". Reveal implementation challenges in leading a new periodontal standard of care. Establish a customized periodontal plan as a long-term strategy for managing periodontal health and have patients "thank you" at the same time.
