Your Practice Through Your Patients' Eyes

This is a course originally presented at the ADA 2020 Virtual Connect Conference.

Overview
Do you really know your patients? Do they know you? In the life cycle of a patient, it’s not just about how many clicks in the computer or how many restorations you have done. What it is about is how many real conversations you have had, the personal care and the customized touch. Let’s take customer service to a whole new level by learning who your target audience is, what they expect and what they see. A patient’s positive perception is your success. It’s time to put on different glasses and see things in a new perspective!

Presenter:
Laci Phillips, Speaker/Coach, Practice Dynamics


Learning objectives:
• Discover your office in a new prospective, both external and internal views
• Learn which reports to run to find out if your target audience is who you thought they would be
• Gain insights from a patient’s perspective, what do they see and hear

Periodontal-Systemic Influences in the 2017 Classification of Periodontitis

This is a course originally presented at the ADA 2020 Virtual Connect Conference.

Overview
Understanding how periodontal-systemic science was incorporated into the new (2017) system for classifying periodontitis is essential in implementing these new guidelines. This course starts by providing a cut-to-the-chase overview of many periodontal-systemic links including several new ones under investigation. It then explores how a number of factors influence the rate of periodontal disease destruction, the future risk of further disease activity and how treatment may impact overall health. Also discussed is a new therapeutic target for patients with a reduced periodontium (after initial therapy) and that is low disease activity and modifying factors.

Presenter: Casey Hein, president of Casey Hein & Associates, LLC

Learning objectives:
Explain the biological mechanisms implicated in the inflammatory pathway linking periodontal disease to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pneumonia complications of pregnancy and other links under investigation
• Identify patients who are inflammatory primed and determine how this may influence their risk or progression of periodontal deterioration
• Identify patients’ periodontal risk factors and implement continuous risk assessment to assess periodontal stability
