Microbial organisms are phenomenal creatures capable of impacting our lives in a variety of positive and negative ways. Because the oral cavity contains a large, diverse population of microbes, in or on the human body, it is imperative that the oral healthcare provider understand bacterial and viral dynamics in order to render effective care and provide patients with appropriate homecare recommendations. Microbiology - an often daunting field of study to master - will presented to course participants in a relaxed, fun, dynamic manner that maximizes learning while providing truly amazing facts to ponder and incorporate into treatment strategies. Be prepared to be amazed by the microscopic world!
