Periodontics Update Course
Providing excellent periodontal therapy in a general practice is hard work. It takes organization and teamwork. The staff members who run the front desk have to know the details particularly when they communicate to patients. Assistants have to interact with hygienists and dentists and of course the dentist must provide the leadership to make the entire process go. However, the hygienist through knowledge and skill may be the most important factor.
The course will center on the most important factors that influence the quality of periodontal patient care. Controversial subjects including local delivery, rinses, ultrasonics, irrigation, surgery, lasers and systemic antibiotics will be discussed. New surgical procedures including procedures emphasizing esthetic outcomes will be presented. The critical and expanding role of the dental hygienist in the management of periodontal disease and the knowledge and skill required to provide the best treatment available is main focus of Dr. Fetner’s philosophy and this program.
This program is relevant to all members of the dental team from front desk to dentists.
