21st Century Preventive Care with Guided Biofilm Therapy: Are you Practicing in this Century?
May 13 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Dr. Pamela Maragliano-Muniz
Brought to us by:
Assess, scale, polish. Assess, scale, polish. Dental hygienists have treated patients in this order for decades and while this approach is sufficient to remove local deposits on teeth, it does not address biofilm. Oral biofilm has been implicated in numerous systemic conditions and dental professionals have a unique opportunity to effectively and efficiently remove biofilm. This promotes a positive impact on oral health and mitigates the oral contribution on the
exacerbation of systemic health conditions. GBT (Guided Biofilm Therapy) has revolutionized preventive care. This webinar will describe GBT, implementation and the clinical and practice management outcomes of integrating this into clinical practice.
Upon completion of this webinar, attendees will be able to:
1.describe the concept of GBT.
2.appreciate the benefits of implementing GBT into clinical practice.
3.understand important strategies when implementing GBT.
4.anticipate clinical benefits and patient perception of modifying the familiar dental hygiene appointment.
