    Oral Health Factor Risk Management and Silver Diamide Fluoride

    Course description: Physicians make recommendations for heart disease based on risk factors. Dental professionals using risk assessment for caries, oral cancer and periodontal disease are performing a similar function. New technologies, materials and procedures area constantly evolving for earlier arrest and prevention of caries infections. New dental benefit codes and metrics have been added recently that better define the caries infection process and cavitation. In addition, a code for interim caries medicament application, like silver diamine fluoride, has also been added. This interactive course focuses on application and implementation with immediate application the next day at the office.

    Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

    • Discuss the basics of CAMBRA-caries management by risk assessment philosophy
    • Identify 3 minimally invasive levels of new prevention
    • Compare and contrast traditional fluoride, fluoride varnish, fluoride disks and silver diamine fluoride delivery systems
    • Illustrate the use and return on investment (ROI) of new diagnostic and therapeutic options

Patti holds publishing and speaking licenses with ADA for Current Dental Terminology©2018 and a license for SNODENT©2018 diagnostic coding. Patti shares her insights and expertise through her DentalCodeology book series. In 2018 she released her CDT 2018 Shifts Metrics Driven and 7th book Teledentistry Pathway to Prosperity.
