COURSE TITLE: What is it? How do I use it?: Today’s dental products and treatment options

Today’s dental sessions require an exhaustive knowledge of products, instruments and equipment. Our profession has changed and grown to a new level, which offers us continuous challenges to recognize the new advances in technology and their use in dentistry. As professionals providing health services, we should be at the pulse of clinical devices and treatment, while being able to recommend product protocols for use in the office. The process of care (assessment, diagnosis, treatment planning, implementation and evaluation) requires us to understand what these products are, how to use them, contemporary treatment options, how to implement the procedures and evaluate what is and what is not working for us as individuals and as clinicians. We will also discuss ergonomic options to protect ourselves as clinicians.

This course will provide information for the clinicians to be able to:
• Recognize improvements on products utilized by dental professionals
• Distinguish which new-to-market products should be brought into your practice
• Select materials and products for dental hygiene therapy, oral cancer screening, patient communication and instrumentation
• Discuss diagnosis assistance with employers and rationale for changes in assessment forms and diagnostic tools
• Communicate effectively to patients and assist in the business of the dental practice
• Recognize and evaluate changes to implement in the office
• Discuss strategies that incorporate efficiency in patient treatment for a more productive schedule
