Bring the team to this course! Significant numbers of patients walk into our offices every day with legitimate periodontal treatment needs. There are now, more than ever before, compelling reasons to address these needs, and we have the technology and ability to address them more effectively. With today’s economic realities in mind, doctors and hygienists must be able to translate the latest research into efficient clinical practice in order for the practice to thrive rather than just survive.
The success of the periodontal portion of your practice is going to depend on your ability to motivate patients in need of care, and use a therapeutic approach that gives them the maximum chance to both achieve and then maintain a preferred level of oral health. This course will show you how to do both. You will leave with the knowledge and materials necessary to use new periodontics to benefit both your patients and your practice.
As a result of attending this course, you will:
- Learn about the latest links between oral and overall health.
- Improve communication with patients.
- Develop a diagnosis protocol that is efficient and productive.
- Create decision pathways for treatment – know what to use and when to use it.
- Leave with the knowledge and materials to make your perio department efficient, productive and state-of-the-art.
