Eliminating Ethical Dilemmas around RDH Billing!


Course Description: The number one ethical dilemma in most practices is regarding RDH Billing. Also, it is the number one call, hygiene colleges receive from their registrants. In the “Eliminating the Ethical Dilemmas around RDH Billing” Workshop we explore the evolution of the CDA & CDHA fee guides, understand how it pertains to RDH’s working in a traditional dental practice vs. independent RDH practice, learn the provincial differences in interpretation and how it relates to billing appropriately.

2018 AAP Periodontal Classification & Radiographs Workshop


Course Description: “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 & Documentation Workshops

Medical & Dental Health History Workshops


Course Description:Collecting a complete medical & dental health history allows the clinician to assess a client’s level of oral and systemic wellness. The health history, in conjunction with the physical exam, provides the foundation for clinical decision making, supporting both the dental and dental hygiene diagnosis. It identifies key risk factors and existing health conditions that may affect dental care requiring treatment modifications before, during, or after care, and influencing clinical outcomes such as healing, predisposition to infection or oral disease progression.

New Global AAP Periodontal Classification Workshops


Course Description: It is estimated that 95% of the population has some level of periodontal disease and in knowing that 90% of systemic disease have some oral manifestation it has become apparent that change is needed in the treatment This workshop explores the changes needed to move away from a solely biofilm-based model to a more holistic inflammation-based model in periodontal therapy. The New Global AAP Periodontal Classification  workshop will bridge the gap between the old & future critical thinking needed to integrate “best practices” in patient care.

Treatment Planning & Implementation Workshop


Course Description: Have you made the shift? With all that we know about the oral & systemic disease link the standard of care must change.  A simple “cleaning” will only suffice for the 5% of healthy patients in your practice, the other 95%  with some level of periodontal disease it is not enough to achieve oral & overall health. Your treatment plan must shift to nonsurgical periodontal therapy most of the time and include  proper implementation technique(s) to achieve optimal patient outcomes.  What you will discover in this workshop is that most clinicians never get to therapeutic endpoint because they do not treatment plan enough time.

Evaluation & Prognosis Workshop


Course Description: Are you still putting the blame on your patient’s less than optimal outcomes solely on their poor oral hygiene? Or are you evaluating both their oral self-care and your therapeutic approach, therapies, and clinical skills? An evaluation needs to include both.  In this workshop you will discover how important the evaluation phase of treatment is and how to effectively establish a prognosis using three factors to determine future progression.
