Treatment Planning & Implementation Workshop

April 28, 2023

Course Description:

Have you made the shift? With all that we know about the oral & systemic disease link the standard of care must change.  A simple “cleaning” will only suffice for the 5% of healthy patients in your practice, the other 95%  with some level of periodontal disease it is not enough to achieve oral & overall health. Your treatment plan must shift to nonsurgical periodontal therapy most of the time and include  proper implementation technique(s) to achieve optimal patient outcomes.  What you will discover in this workshop is that most clinicians never get to therapeutic endpoint because they do not treatment plan enough time. 

The learning objectives are:

  • Decide on treatment that minimizes the impact of predisposing & modifiable factors on the periodontium.
  • Choose a sequence for developing a dental hygiene care plan as it relates to the dental hygiene diagnosis.
  • Select a client-centred care plan based on the dental hygiene diagnosis.
  • Identify the Phases in the Nonsurgical Periodontal Therapy
  • Explain the concept, of nonsurgical periodontal therapy.
  • Assess if implementation of nonsurgical periodontal therapy is required for treatment.
  • Appraise the impact ultrasonic instrumentation has on patient outcomes.
  • Assess the impact local anesthetic has during nonsurgical periodontal therapy.
