More Than a Bloody Prophy: What Can We Do Differently?

April 28, 2022
1:00 pm – 3:30 pm
  • Debbie Seidel Bittke, RDH, BS

Being a dental hygienist is not only about cleaning teeth. Today’s dental hygienist is a preventive specialist and a member of the dental team who helps patients live a longer and healthier life. The American Academy of Periodontology gave us tools to identify and sequence treatment which results in our patients living a longer, healthier life.

Learning Objectives:
1) Prophy or perio: when to treat and sequence of treatment.
2) Effective use of the AAP perio classifications.
3) Help patients “own” their disease.

Course Number: T2228
