We designed this exciting, innovative course to shed new light on the periodontal patients we see every day, which is an estimated 65 million adults in the United States. Because the general dentist is held to the same standard in diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, as would a periodontist, every oral health care provider must be well versed in what makes periodontal involved patients different from a routine prophylaxis. This course will dive deep into the science of periodontitis starting with etiologies, diagnosis, and prognosis. We will then continue with new strategies in non-surgical and surgical therapies. Finally, we will discuss the art of maintaining the health of our most commonly seen clients, and avoiding supervised neglect.

Dental photography is an art! When used correctly, it can be an exceptional tool used for patient education, dental records, and presentations. Great equipment and tools do not necessarily translate to great images, if the user does not understand the capabilities of the camera and editing tools available. Explaining treatment options to your patient with photographs increases their acceptance of the treatment plan and helps facilitate better communication with the dental lab, insurance company, and specialists.
