- Identify the benefits of digital scanning in the dental hygiene operatory.
- Incorporate a diversified portfolio of ultrasonic inserts and tips to improve efficiency and safety during debridement.
- Compare and contrast traditional and contemporary instrumentation methodology.
- Incorporate an air polishing program for biofilm management to improve clinical outcomes.
Contemporary healthcare models have shortened the time a provider spends with their patient but demands the same level of quality outcomes. Oral health care providers are expected to produce the same quality outcomes as in years past with less time allotted for patient care. This course will teach a contemporary approach to dental hygiene procedures that improves efficiency of debridement, decreases operator muscle strain and injury, and maximizes procedure time with integrated technology.
The technology boom of the 21st century has changed the healthcare landscape and revolutionized the dental field. Digital scanning in the dental operatory enhances patient communication and identification of treatment needs. Debridement efficiency and root conservation is greatly improved with new ultrasonic instrumentation technology and air polishing devices. Come and learn to reboot and upgrade your dental hygiene operatory by integrating evidence-based technology from the author of the new international textbook being sold to dental hygiene programs worldwide entitled “Power Instrumentation for the Dental Hygienist.”
