What Are We REALLY Looking For? – Oral Pathology Cases and Concepts

Course Description:
This course is an overview of oral pathologic conditions from Ms. Lukes' own personal collection of lesion images accumulated over 37 years as a dental hygienist and a 28-year teaching career. Etiology, clinical appearance and treatment options are included for each lesion/condition, highlighting the assessment phase of the process of care. The course includes both common and uncommon conditions, many of which are signs of systemic disease, emphasized in a discussion about interdisciplinary collaboration with other health professionals. Comparison images for inclusion in differential diagnoses will also be presented encouraging dental professionals to utilize all patient information when analyzing lesions. This course can serve as an excellent update for seasoned hygienists/dentists or a relevant review for new graduates entering the field.

Learning Objectives:
•  Explain the etiology, clinical appearance and treatment options of various oral pathologic conditions.
•  Compare/contrast lesions that can be considered in a differential diagnosis for each pathologic entity.
•  Describe oral symptoms of various systemic conditions as presented in cases.
•  Discuss interdisciplinary collaboration for follow up care for patients presenting with oral signs of systemic disease

CHANGE YOUR THOUGHTS TO IMPROVE YOUR OUTCOMES An Update on Protocols, Products and Treatment Options

Course Description:
Updated protocols assist us in determining our patient's specific needs. As we move towards a more collaborative profession, we need to embrace these updates to identify those needs.
We are presented with continuous challenges of new advances in products and technology and their use in dentistry and are in need of information to determine when and how to add them into our armamentaria. As professionals providing health services, our perception of product use along with protocols needs to be discussed with our team as well as the interdisciplinary referrals we have. The process of care (assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, implementation, evaluation and documentation) requires a comprehension of protocols, products and treatment options and how they are to be utilized.

Learning Objectives:
•  Distinguish which new-to-market products should be brought into your practice
•  Integrate materials and products for a variety of uses in the dental office from infection control, dental hygiene therapy, oral cancer screening, patient communication and instrumentation
•  Formulate strategies that incorporate efficiency in patient treatment for more productive scheduling

Patient's Homecare Matters!

Course Description:
Oral healthcare products are being purchased, yet we still have a high prevalence of gum disease. Understanding the timeline of our microbiome will help us strategize what assessment factors are important when deciding recall intervals. After we have decided how often we will see our patients, how will we achieve patient compliance? Next, we will discuss how we administer oral hygiene instruction in the framework of researched behavioral change models. The delivery makes a difference. Lastly, not every patient is the same, so we must tailor the home care recommendations. Based on research and specific patient needs, we will discuss what types of modalities to recommend.

Learning Objectives:
•  Identify appropriate continuing care intervals
•  Strategize an effective approach to professional oral hygiene instruction
•  Deliver individualized home care recommendations based on patient needs

POWER OFF BIOFILM! Put The Power in Your Hands

Course Description:
While air polishing has been around for 3 decades, their use was generally restricted to supragingival stain removal. Like ultrasonics with micro tips, their use with finer size powder particles is evolving into the next treatment modality for periodontal therapy. What do you need to know about this latest technological application? How can you incorporate it into your clinical routine? While micro ultrasonics are now considered standard of care in periodontal therapy, what else are you using them for? What technological advances have there been since you were in school or your last CE Course? Is there really a difference between piezoelectric technology and magnetostrictive units? Are there any new inserts on the market? Is there any superior way to adapt ultrasonic instruments to the type of patient in your chair?

Learning Objectives:
•  Biofilm's role in inflammatory disease
•  Implications of inadequate biofilm removal
•  New research/theory on air polishing subgingivally using glycine/erythritol powders
•  Air polishing practical hints and tips
•  Implant maintenance and peri-mucositis treatment
•  The latest in types of ultrasonic inserts and units
•  Contrasts in piezoelectric/magnetostrictive technologies
•  Use both technologies on healthy not just perio patients
•  An ergonomic and "time economic" instrumentation sequence

Lasers - Approaching a New Standard of Care in Managing Periodontitis and Peri implant Disease

Course Description:
A recent landmark study demonstrates validity in managing periodontitis with all-tissue-lasers including clinical success with positive patient related outcomes and a concomitant decrease in recession. Similar data shows how Erbium laser wavelengths have been incorporated into procedures for treating peri implant disease with no adverse thermal events as to the integrity of implant surfaces. Dentistry is evolving into a minimally invasive culture with attention to positive patient perceptions and comfort.

Learning Objectives:
•  Develop an understanding of the Erbium wavelength as related to the effects on target tissue in both the periodontium and implants
•  Review the rationale for managing periodontitis as related to laser therapy.
•  Explore the effect of Erbium lasers on various titanium surfaces as part of a detoxification process in managing peri implantitis.
•  Demonstrate how the integration of a Er, Cr: YSGG laser into a practice of periodontics creates a positive niche for patient acceptance and value-added revenue stream

"Are You're Patients Too Sensitive?" …Addressing Oral Hypersensitivity/
Pain Management with Today's Patients


Course Description:
Caries infection has increased in today's population and continues to be a major disease for children and adults. This course discusses the impact of Nanotechnology on today's preventative and restorative materials. Attendees will have a "hands-on forum" to provide their dental teams with new findings on today's desensitizers, fluoride applications and dental tooth creams used to combat patient's current symptoms and effectively handle pain management.

Learning Objectives:
•  Gain an understanding of new research findings that can contribute to the evidence for application of varnish with chemotherapeutic fluoride treatment
•  Understand the findings of recent research exploring how dental practitioners are using scientific evidence in their patient treatment decisions and patient counseling

Course Outcomes:
•  Attendees will learn about the method of applying Xylitol containing, natural and artificial-based fluoride treatments and Nano filled tooth creams
•  Understand how to discuss options with your patient to better manage their sensitivity and pain issues that occur when they neglect their oral health
•  Understand the correct 2020 CDT coding for hygiene procedures and incorporate certain hygiene procedures in daily patient discussions to increase profitability in the office

Lasers - Approaching a New Standard of Care in Managing Periodontitis and Peri implant Disease

Course Description:
As dental professionals, we need to step up to change the way we re-evaluate how we treat mucosal oral infections. Enhance your verbal and clinical skills on WHAT a hygienist should know about regenerative periodontal disease treatment. This course will provide you with the latest research-based tools, technology, protocols and home-care recommendations for your patients' overall health. The research, tools, and biologic products are now available to regenerate bone and tissue, not simply ‘manage or repair' it!

Learning Objectives:
•  Elevate your professional in-office protocols for gingivitis and periodontal disease treatment.
•  Learn WHAT is the hygienists' role with regeneration - Glickman and Miller Classification and when is the optimal time for guided tissue/ bone regeneration (GTR/ GBR)
•  Have an understanding and the verbal skills to talk to patients about adjunctive regenerative procedures to set the stage for implants
•  root coverage, socket preservation, sinus and alveolar ridge augmentation.
•  Recommend the latest in preventative neutral pH home-care products to ensure successful disease treatment and overall health.
•  Gain an awareness of current regenerative treatments by viewing clinical treatment cases.
