Course Outline:

This course aims to be  interactive and will combine education with clinical practice and a networking opportunity for everyone.  Dental care professionals often work in isolation in a physically, mentally and emotionally demanding environment.  We want to do the very best for our patients and we struggle with exceptionally limited time constraints.

I hope that this course will fire you up and confirm what you already know and give you some new tips to try out in your everyday clinical practice.  We will address the most current thinking related to periodontal instrumentation with new technology that is already proven to enhance the patient and operator experience.  You will return to work feeling empowered and a new found confidence in treating patients based upon evidence based research.

Delegates are asked to bring along the hand instruments they are currently using for a practical exercise
