Presented by Dr. Sam Low



Want to utilize the Hygienist’s time more productively?  Looking for a quality resource for “what’s new” in dental products, systems and technology?

This presentation will provide the participant with user-friendly protocols and technological solutions to find and manage periodontal disease.  Take the frustration out of delivering periodontal care and gain success with patient case acceptance, tooth retention and financial reward.  AND leave traditional root planning behind and move into a new era of periodontal care.


Standardize your perio charting and incorporate micro-thin ultrasonic instrumentation to decrease fatigue and enhance efficiency with new local anesthesia techniques and topical anesthetics to manage difficult access, including the pesky furcation!  Experience the new air power subgingival devices for spectacular biofilm disruption including implant management!

You will:

  • Utilize data collection to find and market periodontal care!
  • Develop “realistic” non-surgical therapies and the respective reevaluation with emphasis on “new” anti-inflammatory systems including micro-ultrasonics and laser technology, and nutraceuticals as probiotics and anti-oxidants.
  • Incorporate power driven instrumentation into the periodontal component of the practice.
  • Operating ultrasonics with micro-thin inserts in a sulcular arena with an array of medicaments.
  • Gain ergonomic techniques to decrease physical fatigue and enhance time efficiency.
  • Determine the efficacy of utilizing various lasers in sulcular decontamination, degranulation, and laser bacterial reduction.
  • Establish a quality periodontal maintenance program that enhances the restorative practice including third party reimbursement.
