Mask mouth, hypersensitivity, bleeding gingiva and the list goes on! Much like a fingerprint no two dental patients or their needs are the same. Whether you are treating a child or a more seasoned patient their homecare needs and routines may vary. In the midst of the pandemic oral self-care has changed and patients are delaying dental visits. In turn, dental professionals are faced with the challenge of educating and treating patients who have let oral self-care diminish. This CE webinar will offer an insight into creating customized care plans and motivational techniques to encourage optimal patient homecare. ( full description, bio and commercial disclosure )

Several technologies for medical screening (chairside) will be introduced, including glucose and lipid analyses. Challenges to implementing these non-traditional services into the dental practice will also be discussed. The CE webinar concludes by inviting participants to take part in a poll that will seek to determine OHCPs’ attitudes about implementing medical screening, their feelings of competency to perform these procedures, and education and training necessary to be successful in this new practice paradigm.

Worldwide, an estimated 390 million people have diabetes - and that number keeps growing. This patient population has specialized needs when it comes to periodontal care. Treating diabetic patients is different than nondiabetic patients. This CE webinar provides cut-to-the-chase explanations about the interrelationship between diabetes and periodontal disease and information to empower oral healthcare providers to screen dental patients for diabetes and prediabetes, articulate scientifically-founded, key messages for patient education about this interrelationship, and better understand how poor glycemic control in a diabetic patient should influence treatment planning. This CE webinar is a must for clinicians who are still treating patients who have diabetes the same way they treat patients without diabetes.

Patients are disappearing from our practices. Why is this happening? Where have they gone? Why aren’t they returning as they had every 6 months? Maybe they aren’t able to physically get to the office any more, or maybe they are residing in a nursing home.

Dental professionals who take this CE webinar will learn about this at risk, growing population and discover viable solutions for keeping track of these patients and keeping them healthy.

This CE webinar will focus on the use of barriers for Guided Bone Regeneration. It is well known that membranes are needed to isolate soft tissue from invading hard tissue grafts. At times, the combined use of bone graft materials in combination with membranes maybe cumbersome and time consuming. New bone graft materials available on the market minimize these drawbacks, by incorporating the membrane material within the volume of the graft. Techniques and indications for modified socket grafting procedures to easier coverage for sinus lift will be presented, so that the clinicians has additional arrays of materials to make a more in depth referral vs non referral call.
