Dental Hygienists,

please join us for a special event!

 

Biofilm Management, Dental Implants, and Infection Control

This hygiene workshop features the top three requested hygiene topics all in one course!

The morning kicks off with a thought-provoking review about the traditional dental hygiene appointment. The practice of being a dental hygienist has long been focused on calculus removal. But, why? Is calculus the cause of dental disease? Discover new ideas of biofilm management and patient behavior change techniques.

The course next transitions to a review of dental implants, as hygienists today are seeing more and more implants during routine care. This section features clinical factors, assessments during hygiene appointments, and effective ways to provide optimal care for each implant patient.

The final topic of the day addresses infection control in a surgical setting. Infection control failures in dental settings are an ongoing concern. We can all appreciate ways to break the chain of infection during viral outbreaks– even during a typical cold and flu season– but are we doing enough on a day-to-day basis to ensure that we prevent infection in our practices?
