Course Description


Shift Happens!  Integrating Emerging Preventive & Therapeutic Protocols

The practice of dental hygiene and preventive protocols has changed over the past 25 years. This session will overview the ever changing paradigms surrounding the practice of dental hygiene with emphasis on evolving preventive & therapeutic protocols. Scientific paradigms have long been the corner stone of clinical practice and daily care and yet many of these paradigms are not the “reality”. Emerging sciences have led to key understanding of new methods to prevent and treat both caries and periodontal disease which has necessitated integration and implementation for the progressive clinician. This interactive session will inspire attendees to unconscious competency!


Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:

  •  Evaluate the stages of change as they relate to implementation of new protocols and cite significant changes in paradigms regarding preventive and therapeutic protocols, including minimally invasive approaches and compare these to the realities of current practice.
  •  Develop strategies to integrate new protocols, such as Caries Management by Risk Assessment (CAMBRA) and Full-Mouth Disinfection (FMD), into practice.
  • Implement the principles of aesthetic dental hygiene, (fresh breath, cosmetic options, occlusal therapy), to increase patient satisfaction and achieve optimal oral health.


This is definitely a must attend day of continuing education!
