Updated Periodontal Classification system
Hygienists, Nicole and Heather, attended a course all day Saturday on the updated periodontal disease classification system.
This sounds confusing. And it can be.
We learnt that severe periodontal disease is the 6th most prevalent disease in the world.
What are we updating?
A system that exists to be able to measure and diagnose individuals with regards to gum and bone disease within the mouth.
We will be updating all patients periodontal charting over the next few years to meet these standards.
What our Staff will be doing?
All hygienists and dentists in our office will have completed a course in this training by the end of the year.
Patients do not need to worry about a thing. We are staying on top of our continuing education to benefit our patients!
