Event description

Description

Our Dental Hygiene Study Club was created to provide continuous learning relevant to the profession of Dental Hygiene to maintain the highest level of professionalism, in a supportive environment. Over the past several years, it has grown to over 175 members and continued to bring quality continuing education to the dental hygienists of Southern Orange County.

We are so excited for our 2018 curriculum! At the October 2017 meeting, we handed out a survey for potential topics for 2018; thank you for your kind responses. We have designed the 2018 Study Club based on that feedback. There will be five meetings will be held at the Laguna Hills Community Center and each session will be 3 units of continuing education.

Co-Speaker: Chris Kussoff, OC Clinic Director of Egoscue Inc.


My Egoscue journey started when i was a personal trainer up in the Portland area. I was doing everything I knew to get my clients in shape: but many of them still suffered from chronic pain and nagging injuries. Sometjhing was missing. The facility where I was working hosted an education event. One of the guest speakers was an Egoscue Method therapist. The Egoscue Method made sense. It was the piece of the puzzle that I had been searching for. I immediatly read all of Pete Egoscue’s books then started using the method with my clients. My next step was a trip to Egoscue headquarters in San Diego. The rest is history. I began working in San Diego in 2000, and I opened the OC Egoscue Clinic in 2004. I have transformed my own body with the Egoscue Method and I continue to share this gift everyday with my clients.
