2014 Periodontics Courses


Periodontal Instrumentation – Saturday 2 August

This course is designed for Dentists, Hygienists, Therapists and Technicians.

Clinical skills required for providing periodontal therapy most effectively and efficiently may be enhanced by viewing all instruments as a total unit, rather than as separate entities.

Participants will be able to review current clinical instrumentation practice in a safe environment. This course will review ergonomics, hand positioning and help each participant to develop optimal clinical technique to reduce stress-related injuries. You will be able to “test drive” a variety of instruments that will be available and be shown the correct clinical technique for their use.

This workshop will provide practical principles for confronting clinical complications with dexterity, skill and confidence.
