How Often Should I Classify a Perio Patient?

 

With more and more practices using the AAP’s Staging & Grading system, we occasionally get the question ‘Do I have to go through the Staging & Grading process every time the patient comes in?’

So I created a short video to answer that question specifically.

Calling All Doubters

 

Take a couple of minutes and listen to Dr. Amy Doneen, co-author of the bestselling book, Beat the Heart Attack Gene, discuss the importance of treating perio as it relates to systemic inflammation. If you are still in doubt that periodontal pathogens can ’cause’ cardiovascular events, take a listen!!

Are You Screening Kids for Sleep Disorders?

 

By now, we know the impact of sleep apnea on the lives of our adult patients, but did you know sleep disorders can have a HUGE and long-lasting impact on children?

In this video, I share a great resource for learning more about sleep disorders in children and how we, as dental professionals, can easily and quickly identify some red flags that may change the course of a child’s life.

Is Your Equipment Working?

 

So often when we are on-site with clients, a team member shares their frustration that a critical piece of equipment isn’t working. It’s usually an intra-oral camera, by the way.

What’s interesting is that the dentist/owner/practice manager is often not aware of the issue. Think of the care that’s NOT being presented and accepted during those days and weeks that the camera is out of commission.

This is a great, short video to share with your team and remind you to double check that everything is in good working order.
