Course Description

Advanced Hygiene Therapy – Developing a Comprehensive Approach (Part 1)

In treating today’s periodontal patient successfully, the clinician must customize a treatment plan that goes beyond the removal of plaque and calculus. Achieving excellent clinical outcomes involves assessing for systemic issues, communicating and customizing home care according to the patient’s level of understanding and ability to perform home care procedures, and choosing appropriate adjuncts to care. In this two-part live webinar, you will learn effective strategies for treating the periodontal patient from A-Z. You will gain a greater understanding of disease pathogenesis and progression and learn why an effective antimicrobial approach is an important part of disease control. We will explore the multi-faceted treatment planning approach that includes scheduling and coding, adjuncts to care, and choosing appropriate home care aids. We will examine documentation for periodontal care and explore strategies for dealing with informed consent and refusal of definitive care.
