About the event
Friday Morning Session: 9AM-12PM, 3 hours of CE “MENTAL ERGONOMICS: THE ART OF PREVENTING CLINICAL BURNOUT” Kandice Swarthout, MS, RDH, LPC
▪ As a result of managing anxious or difficult patients, many dental professionals suffer from occupational stressors that have psychological and emotional consequences that lead to burnout and poor work performance. Dental professionals must also manage the reality of sometimes causing patients pain and discomfort in order to deliver services. This course focuses on how emotional labor and compassion fatigue lead to stress and burnout for dental professionals; the neuroscience of stress on the brain and body; the clinician’s personal responsibility in the culture of the dental practice; and practical applications for prevention and recovery.
Friday Afternoon Session: 1PM-4PM, 3 hours of CE “FROM RISK TO RESULTS: PERIODONTAL INSTRUMENTATION FOR THE ADVANCED PRACTITIONER” Lisa Mayo, RDH, BS
▪ This course is based on current scientific literature and will provide the clinician evidence based tools and strategies for comprehensive patient care. The Evidence-based Decision Making (EBDM) process will be discussed with regard to periodontal risk assessment protocols, salivary diagnostics, and progressive treatment planning. Advantages of ultrasonic instrumentation will be examined as demonstrated in the current research for obtaining successful clinical outcomes.
Saturday Morning Session: 9AM-12PM, 3 hours of CE “SPECIAL CARE DENTISTRY FOR THE DENTAL PROFESSIONAL” Jonathan Clemetson, DDS, MS
