Description:
Why is it that no one ever wants to sharpen hygiene instruments, but they want them to have that new, just “out-of-the-package” feel? This hands-on workshop will demonstrate how easily and effectively hygienists CAN sharpen scalers and curettes once they find the method that works BEST for them. Join Ms. Bendit for a relaxed, informal workshop that will highlight some of the latest and greatest guides, aids and devices that can help attendees achieve sharp, cutting edges on instruments every time! Attendance is limited to 30.
