Course Description:

Let’s face it, it can be challenging to get the entire team calibrated, especially when it comes to our periodontal protocols. Often, clinicians are left with performing a higher level of care than they bill out for due to the lack of clarify on the protocol, lack of the verbal skills they need to tell a long-term “prophy” patient they are in a higher level of disease, or not having the support from the business team to understand what needs to be submitted to insurance to enhance the patient’s coverage. This three-part series is designed to enhance the team approach to building a soft-tissue management program and will highlight the AAP classifications, treatment modalities, maintenance protocols, risk assessment and management, evidence-based practices, and so much more.
