The Dental Hygiene Detective: What the Patient’s Mouth is Telling Us

Amber Auger, RDH, MPH

There are many clues that provide evidence of diseases, such as occlusal wear, recession, bleeding, fissured tongues, erythemic tissues, incipient lesions, and many more. Determining our patient’s high-risk factors for oral disease and systemic health is multi-factorial, and our role as dental professionals allows us to evaluate the first signs of disease. This program will help you and your team review the patient’s risk factors. At the same time, empowering the clinician to compare clinical technologies that align with the patient’s lifestyle to reduce and decrease disease.

Course Objectives:

  • Review the role of pH in the caries risks assessment and learn to identify stages of demineralization and remineralization.
  • Identify the latest techniques in salivary testing and how to treat the patient based on the results.
  • Prioritize the patient’s high-risk factors to decrease their risks of oral disease and systemic health comprehensively.
  • Reevaluate insulin resistance and why it’s essential for dental professionals.
  • Discover how to expedite risk assessments to enhance patient education and prevention.
  • Evaluate the latest clinical and homecare technologies to decrease patients’ oral and systemic disease risks.
