Contemporary healthcare models for dentistry and medicine have shortened the time a provider spends with their patient but still demands high quality outcomes. Oral health care providers are expected to produce the same quality outcomes as in years past with less time allotted for patient care. This course will teach a contemporary approach to dental hygiene procedures that improves efficiency of debridement, decreases operator muscle strain and injury, and maximizes procedure time with integrated technology.
The technology boom of the 21st century has changed the healthcare landscape and revolutionized the dental field. Digital scanning in the dental operatory improves patient communication and identification of treatment needs. Debridement efficiency and root conservation are greatly improved with new power instrumentation technology such as ultrasonics, supragingival, and subgingival air polishing. Come and learn to work smarter, not harder, while integrating evidence-based dentistry in your dental hygiene operatory.
