Aerosol Free Dentistry: Boost Your Practice with Less Aerosol &

Safer Therapy
April 29, 2022
8:30 am – 10:30 am
  • George Merijohn, D.D.S.

This seminar is for clinicians who use power scalers, air polishers and air turbine handpieces and for those seeking or using alternatives. Contaminated aerosol isn’t safe and leading-edge practices not only try to keep it from spreading – they also strive to prevent producing it in the first place. Sound, time-tested, no-nonsense methodology matters. Now is the time to give your practice the competitive edge it needs. Discover the key steps you can immediately implement to maximize dental team safety, attract top dental team members, exceed patient expectations, and increase practice volume.

Learning Objectives:
1) Aerosol-reduced and aerosol-free dental hygiene therapy.
2) State-of-the-art aerosol reduced rotary instrumentation.
3) Practical three-way water syringe spray substitutions.
4) Leading edge strategies for practice positioning.
