This month’s Special Topic Mastermind Webinar will help you understand why and decide when to use salivary diagnostics. Much different than ‘culturing’, salivary diagnostics uses polymerase chain reaction and next generation sequencing for a testing platform. These results can help you determine the inflammatory risk, the best treatment modalities and maintenance protocols for your patients who have periodontal disease.
You won’t want to miss this webinar and the opportunity to learn how to make the invisible, visible! No special glasses required! Victoria Richards, RDH, BS and I look forward to meeting you on the webinar!
Making Visible, what used to be invisible!
with special guest
Victoria Richards, BS, RDH
This webinar will explore the science of salivary diagnostics and how this technology offers unique opportunities for clinicians and patients to see what’s never been seen before. We can now know the quality and quantity of the bacteria causing the periodontal infection. In addition we can understand how these bacteria may affect the host based on individual genetic profiles.
On this webinar you will evaluate case studies & learn:
- How ‘reliable’ salivary diagnostics are
- How ‘risky’ periodontal pathogens are
- How genetics ‘really’ influence periodontal & systemic disease
- How ‘recall’ appointments are impacted
