This deep dive is an interactive course where Dr. Fukuoka will bring her “toys” for attendees to taste, feel and try. Don’t like sugar free candy? Let’s test that. Never used an intraoral camera? Come play with Dr. Fukuoka’s. Want to put silver diamine fluoride on an extracted tooth? She's got them! Come feel different textures of toothbrushes; even one made from goat hair! Dr. Fukuoka will go through all her “toys” as volunteers will participate in live demonstrations. At the end of the deep dive course, the “toys” will be on display for attendees to get a closer look and take pictures if desired. Come play with us! Attendance is limited to 40.
