2018 AAP Periodontal Classification & Radiographs Workshop
Course Summary: “ALARA”, an acronym for “As Low as Reasonably Achievable.” It means making every reasonable effort to maintain exposures to ionizing radiation as far below the dose limits as practical for a diagnosis & evaluation. So, what is too low? In this workshop we discuss what is considered reasonable, too low of a dose and what the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) has to say regarding the 2018 AAP Periodontal Classification and Radiographs needed to screen for all periodontal conditions.
Comprehensive Oral Exam
Course Summary: “How Comprehensive is your Comprehensive Oral Exam (COE)?” Are you still just cleaning teeth? If you don’t have a comprehensive COE you probably are. With 80% of patients having some level of periodontal disease they probably need more than a cleaning. Just saying!

Medical & Dental History Workshop
1 DAY WORKSHOP
Your dental and dental hygiene diagnosis begins with a comprehensive medical and dental health history, and an understanding on how it impacts treatment, outcomes and patient acceptance. In most practices too little emphasis is put on collecting the information required to make these very important clinical decisions. If you are not making a dental and dental hygiene diagnosis right from “hello,” your medical and dental history is insufficient, period.
Join us in this one day workshop where you will be given a comprehensive medical dental health history to use in your practice and the tools to fully understand, implement and gain patient acceptance.

In periodontics, with a paradigm shift due to periodontal destruction being redefined as an inflammatory disease, best practice standard now defines that the host response to the microbial challenge and not the oral microbes are responsible, making ultrasonic instrumentation the best treatment. The nonsurgical approach to periodontal treatment currently focuses on biofilm disruption and conservation of tooth structure rather than calculus and cementum removal.
