2021 Meeting Agenda

We have an exceptional opportunity for members to attend three virtual educational events in 2021-22!

This educational series is presented in partnership with


A Triumph:
New Age Treatment Guidelines for Periodontitis and Peri-implant Disease

The first evidence-based treatment guidelines for treating Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases, based on the Classifications of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions, have been published. We will investigate these treatment guidelines to analyze and ultimately apply them to our practice.
The first two sessions will examine the recommended four-step approach to the new age of periodontal therapy published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology. The first step is creating a person-centered care approach involving lifestyle and the reduction of inflammation. The second step empowers the dental hygienist to perform non-surgical periodontal therapy and consider adjunctive therapies. Step three evaluates the case and considers complex treatment that may involve periodontal surgery. The final step creates a plan to promote long term supportive care and provide advice for a healthy lifestyle, including self-care and regular checkups to prevent relapse.

The third session takes an in-depth look at the World Dental Federation’s consensus report on the “Diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of peri-implant diseases and maintenance care of patients with dental implants.” This paper is based on
the Classifications of Peri-implant Disease and Conditions and was published in
the International Dental Journal last year. This information will be critical to your dental hygiene practice.
Both papers rely heavily on non-surgical treatment and customized selection of self-care aids and products. The updated treatment guidelines presented during these sessions are excellent news for the profession of dental hygiene!
