Seminar Topic: Management of Phase I Periodontal Therapy

Speaker: Dr. Sam Malkinson

Course Description:

This comprehensive course builds on the participant’s understanding of how to do a complete clinical and radiographic periodontal examination. Participants will explore the information gained in the examination and synthesize it into a diagnosis of inflammatory periodontal disease using the recently updated AAP classification system. The course will also focus on the moment when the patient returns for a re-evaluation following initial phase 1 non-surgical periodontal therapy. At this critical clinical juncture, important decisions need to be made about whether further therapy may be needed to treat residual periodontal disease, and about a patient's future periodontal maintenance schedule. Participants will work through cases in small group exercises and present their findings, followed by group discussion and Q&A. 

Audience: Dentists & Dental Hygienists

Key Learning Objectives:

By the end of the session participants will be able to:

  • Differentiate gingivitis and periodontitis
  • Classify periodontal disease using the staging and grading classification as per the 2017 World Workshop Consensus Report
  • Formulate an accurate diagnosis of periodontitis
  • Create an initial periodontal therapy treatment plan
  • Perform the step-by-step process when conducting the evaluation of the initial therapy appointment
  • Recognize the critical decisions that have to be made at this appointment
  • Implement decisions to ensure the patient’s periodontal status is effectively managed
