The dental hygiene diagnosis is a critical part of providing optimum treatment planning and care for the dental patient. The updated AAP Classification System created in 2017 represents a multi-dimensional staging and grading framework for periodontitis and peri-implant disease. This CE webinar will examine the evolution of the updated system including the concepts of staging and grading to classify each periodontal patient. Determining a patient’s likelihood to predictably respond to therapy is a unique feature of the new classification system and allows for individualized treatment plan development. The CE webinar will also highlight the need and value of collaboration amongst dental and medical professionals.
