The goal of this program is to introduce the participant to the use of micro-ultrasonics in periodontal disease prevention and biofilm management therapy. The history and evolving development of ultrasonic instruments, ongoing science and information to facilitate the successful procedural applications of ultrasonics in your practice will be explored in a fun, upbeat interactive format.

• Hands on instruction with magnetostrictive, piezo equipment and inserts to develop clinical confidence
