Continuing Education for the HDDHS
‘BLOOD IN THE SINK’
OUTLINE: How do we, as health care professionals, convey to our clients that “Blood in the Sink” after brushing and flossing means inflammation and disease, not only in the mouth but in the rest of the body as well? Everyone is talking about the “Oral –Systemic Link”.
Hygienists are the first line of defense against mouth and body inflammation, as clients see their dental hygienist/dentist more often than they see their physician.
20 Exhibitors – Traditional/IntegrativeAll of our sponsors will have their product/equipment on hand to demonstrate how to integrate their products/equipment into the dental appointment.
