In-office Non-surgical Periodontal Therapy Implementation & Calibration: A Customized Program

Is your practice's approach to periodontal patient management as varied as the number of practitioners on your team? Could your practice use a complete review of systems, to get everyone on the same page with periodontal management protocols?

Improper management of periodontally involved patients is a frequent complaint brought before state boards of dentistry. Manage your risk by bringing your periodontal practitioners up to current standards in periodontal assessment, treatment planning, treatment delivery and evaluation. This in-office seminar and hands-on workshop, developed with experienced practitioners in mind, can be tailored to your team's specific needs. You will be given the opportunity to evaluate your practice's current non-surgical periodontal protocols, calibrate all practitioners, and ensure that you are practicing to today's periodontal management standards.

Learn How To

  • Assess, treatment plan, deliver treatment and re-evaluate periodontally involved patients following evidence-based practice protocols
  • Adopt a patient-specific approach to instrument selection and adaptation
  • Devise an appropriate home care regimen, given the patient's periodontal risk factors
  • Develop a comprehensive, calibrated periodontal treatment protocol for your office
