The Dental Hygiene Detective

Advance Risk Assessments

There are many clues that provide evidence of oral disease such as occlusal wear, recession, bleeding, fissured tongues, erythematic tissues, incipient lesions, and many more. Determining our patient’s high-risk factors for oral disease and systemic health is multifactorial, and our role as dental professionals allows us to evaluate and identify the first signs of disease. This program will help you and your team review patient risk factors in depth while empowering the clinician to compare clinical technologies that alight with the patient’s lifestyle to reduce disease.
