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 20% of healthy patients in your practice, the other 80%  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

Or are you evaluating both their oral self-care and your therapeutic approach, therapies, and clinical skills?
