Webinar: Expanding Our Role — A Focus on Reducing Systemic Risk with Lorraine Gambacourt, RDH (Part 1)

May 18, 2023 @ 7:30 pm

Positively influencing oral-systemic health…What does that look like to you? It’s a given that oral health impacts systemic health. Yet, do we consistently evaluate our current methods of assessment and treatment and introduce changes that can bring about improved, more sustainable health outcomes?

A truly valuable and committed Dental Hygienist is never satisfied with the “status quo”. We must continually evolve and expand our knowledge to be able to educate our clients while implementing health strategies and modalities that promote a healthy biofilm, advance oral health, and reduce systemic risk. I believe to be effective we must apply a four-stage approach.

In this webinar, I will be touching on some important concepts of the first three stages:

  1. A review of assessment strategies and some of the key risk factors that can significantly affect client outcomes and systemic health.
  2. We will explore the concept of biofilm testing using DNA analysis and various modalities that can assist you in your effort to “battle pathogenic biofilm.”
  3. We will address chronic inflammation as well as how to educate your client to be an advocate for their own health!

NOTE:  Stage 4 is all about sustaining that improved level of health.  A big part of that involves introducing Oral Probiotics, so be sure to join in for the May 25th webinar!

Learning Objectives

  1. Explain the benefits of DNA microbial analysis as a risk assessment tool.
  2. Identify methods that help assess disease and aid the client in understanding their condition.
  3. List several non-invasive treatment modalities that address the bacterial burden, inflammatory component of PD, and host response.
  4. Describe the value of specific diagnostic tests that can help assess a client’s inflammatory burden.
