Learn how focusing on risk assessment and prevention protocols can lead to both healthier patients and a healthier practice! Today’s dental patients are hungry for prevention strategies that work and lead to less need for restorative care. Long gone are the days when dental practices focused solely on the challenge of restoring decayed dentition. This CE webinar describes how utilizing a caries risk assessment strategy for preventing or reversing early-stage dental caries is evidence-based and creates a win/win for patients and the dental practice alike.
In this CE webinar, Dr. Jean Creasey shares the nuts and bolts of her how own dental practice “prevented it’s way to success”. This webinar reviews why restoration alone is not a cure for caries disease and why focusing on strengthening tooth structure and modifying oral biofilms to favor dental health is key. This webinar also emphasizes that dental caries must be managed as a chronic disease throughout a patients’ lifetime and that motivating patients to change is best achieved when the entire dental team is calibrated and committed to a prevention centered approach.
After attending this CE webinar, participants will be able to: • Understand the science behind contemporary theory of managing dental caries as a chronic disease model • Identify relevant findings and assign an appropriate caries risk status to all patients • Recognize the value of delivering simple interventions and consistent prevention messaging using a team approach • Describe strategies of motivating and communicating with the dental team and patients to ensure successful outcomes
