“Emerging Technology in Remineralization”

 

You bring the popcorn and I’ll bring the entertainment, along with the education. This 3-hour program will explore all the myths, legends and realities of toothbrushes, toothpastes and mouth rinses. We will look at vintage commercials and evaluate how they have shaped our current philosophies and explain why we are so challenged with getting the right products into the hands of our patients. This course will leave you questioning many of the advertisements and making wiser decisions for yourself and your patients.

 

Learning Objectives:

Upon successful completion of this program, participants will:

  • Look at the trends in marketing and how they effect our own decision making process.
  • Formulate a homecare protocol.
  • Evaluate and discuss the science behind many of the OTC products.
  • Determine what toothbrush is best for each patient (manual and electric).
  • Compare and discuss the current rinses available for in-office and home use.
