Ding-dong the String Floss Witch is Dead 
Presenter: Dr. Timothy Donley
Credits:  1 CEU Release Date: 9/21/16
CE Supporter: Philips Oral Healthcare   Reviewed: 2022     Expiration Date: 9/21/25

We have drilled the message into patients for the last 100 years…”brush and floss or else.” In this age of evidence based dentistry that message must change. This CE webinar presents a new approach to oral hygiene instructions (OHI) based on the current science of periodontal disease and dental caries. A new approach to what to say, use and do will be presented when it comes to OHI. Dr. Donley takes a very practical approach that can help your patients and your practice.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will
• Understand the new goal of daily hygiene based on the current science
• Understand the strengths and limitations of existing oral hygiene devices
• Learn a chairside protocol to determine which approach will work best for each specific patient
• Learn how to educate and motivate your patients about the importance of achieving and then maintaining a preferred level of oral health   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
