Enhancing Your Effectiveness with Non-Surgical Therapy: The Perioscope in Periodontal Treatment
Speaker: John Y. Kwan, DDS
Thursday, March 30th, 2017
Registration begins at 6:00 p.m.
Visual access to debride periodontally diseased roots can be obtained via surgical or endoscopic means. The periodontal endoscope is a fiber optic system designed to provide real time video imaging of the subgingival root surface for ultrasonic debridement, at magnifications of 20-40x. This minimally invasive, non-surgical treatment allows for visual and predictable root debridement in the treatment of chronic inflammatory periodontal disease.
1) Learn how endoscopy can be applied to dentistry, in particular for periodontal debridement.
2) Become familiar with periodontal endoscopic image interpretation.
3) See various clinical protocols and business models.

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 few years, it has grown to over 150 members and continued to bring quality continuing education to the dental hygienists of Southern Orange County.
We are so excited for our 2017 curriculum! At the September 2016 meeting, we handed out a survey for potential topics for 2017; thank you for your kind responses. We have designed the 2017 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.
