Significant numbers of patients are walking into our offices every day with legitimate periodontal treatment needs.  There are now more than ever compelling reasons to address these needs.  We have the technologies and abilities to address these.  The success of your practice is going to depend upon your ability to do two things:

  • Give patients reasons to follow through with your treatment recommendations.
  • Consistently deliver optimal results in a way that benefits your patients and practice.

This program will show you how to do both.  You will learn what we can now say for sure about links between perio disease and heart disease, diabetes, pre-term low birth weight, arthritis, obesity, etc.  Then learn how to incorporate these findings into a risk-based approach to periodontal diagnosis and treatment that will work in your practice.  You will leave with knowledge and materials necessary to maximize the potential of your perio department. 

Program Objectives:

  • Fully understand the role inflammation plays in oral and overall health
  • Learn the latest on the links between oral and overall health – what we can say for sure
  • Learn the new message of dentistry which can more effectively educate and motivate patients
  • Learn how to interact with medicine and build your practice
  • Develop a risk-based diagnostic protocol that works
  • Learn a maintenance protocol for maximum production
