Description:
With the changing trend in health care delivery in our country, it's evident that the dental hygienist plays an integral role in their patients' overall health. The hygienist stands on the front line in advocating prevention, aesthetics and therapeutic advances. This course will highlight the potential skills necessary to adapt to that changing model as we explore alternative approaches to treatment settings, changing demographics and advancing technologies. Attendees will recognize the need for skills in risk assessment, advanced instrumentation and technologies, while implementing these skills in the dynamics of their evolving practice settings.*
