During this case-based, fast-paced, interactive and thought-provoking full-day course, participants will examine a ‘day-in-the-life’ of a dental hygienist with quality improvement as the driver. The day begins with critical thinking about dental hygiene care plans specific to patients with diabetes or prediabetes. Throughout the day, participants will critique and refine clinical interventions, including medical history review and proper record-keeping procedures, and get hands-on experience in performing intra- and extraoral examinations, periodontal instrumentation, caring for dental implants, and ergonomic strategies to ensure the health of the practitioner. In order to fully engage in the program, participants will be given the opportunity to read key articles and complete a guided worksheet, several weeks before the course. Those who complete these pre-course activities may be eligible for up to 12 hours toward continuing competency requirements.
