“Periodontal Therapy in 2021, It takes a Village!”
Saturday, January 23, 2021 9am – 12pm 3 CEUs
Emerging from an unprecedented year in a global pandemic, the challenges forced on the dental team has strengthened our resolve to adapt new protocols going forward. As we approach a new year in 2021, our management of disease transmission and oral disease prevention will be tested as a result of the revised periodontal classifications and patient care processes.
In 2018, the American Academy of Periodontology published new guidelines entitled: “Three Steps to Staging and Grading a Patient” and “Staging and Grading Periodontitis.” This program will review the steps in implementing the new guidelines, patient screening, diagnosis, treatment planning and appropriate therapies. Achieving successful outcomes is contingent on optimal instrumentation skills in compliance with the dental setting of 2021.
Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Identify and implement a proper periodontal diagnosis using the updated Staging and Grading system to classify the dental patient.
- Review a case study to familiarize yourself with updated criteria in the new periodontal classification system.
- Choose proper instrumentation with consideration to safe protocols and sound clinical judgement.
- Discuss and apply evidence-based products in prevention of disease transmission.
- Differentiate between natural and implant structures with attention to examination, debridement and home care aids.
- Improve ergonomics with focus on extra-oral fulcrums, sharpening and selecting advanced hand and power instruments

“How to Practice 21st Century Dental Hygiene”
Saturday, January 23, 2021 12:30pm – 3:30pm 3 CEUs
Prevalence rates of periodontal disease in the United States continues to grow as does the percentage of dentally uninsured adults as the GDP (gross domestic product) dollars spent on oral care decrease annually. This public health crisis puts added pressure on dental practitioners to treat patients in oral and systemic dysbiosis. This course will discuss current research trends in biofilm management utilizing the most current technology available on the market such as lasers, ozone, ultrasonics and air abrasion systems. The oral microbiome states of health and disease, and its relation to systemic health and disease management will be discussed. Finally, tools for performing quality online searches to transform evidence-based research into clinical practice will be provided.
At the conclusion of the course, the dental provider will be able to:
- Understand health statistics in the United States as it pertains to dental services.
- Differentiate between systemic symbiosis and dysbiosis and relate those concepts to the etiology of oral disease.
- Perform quality online searches to access credible information through appropriate search engines.
- Incorporate evidence-based technology for biofilm management to promote oral symbiosis.
