    The Crisis of Addiction and What Dental Hygienists Can Do to Make it Stop

    Guest Speaker: Carole Pratt, DDS

     

    This session will discuss the evolution, description, and trajectory of the current crisis of addiction in Virginia with a particular focus on opioids, both prescribed and illicit. An interactive session will explore the myriad presentations of the crisis to the dental hygienist, followed by specific strategies for making a difference in this public health emergency. The presentation will end with a hands-on training of how to recognize and respond to an opioid overdose emergency with the administration of naloxone (Narcan ®).  

    Dr. Pratt is the Senior Advisor and Confidential Assistant for Policy to Virginia’s Secretary of Health and Human Resources and the Commissioner of Health.  Her work is focused particularly on the crisis of addiction and resulting overdose deaths in Virginia.  She practiced general dentistry in rural Virginia for 32 years, is a past president of the American Association of Women Dentists, and served four years as chair of the Virginia Board of Health.  She was vice chair of the Department of Medical Assistance Services (Medicaid) board, chaired Virginia’s Small Business Advisory Board, and served as a member of the Virginia Economic Partnership Board.  She was a National Rural Health Association Fellow, an American Political Science Association Congressional Fellow, and a Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health Policy Fellow working in the personal office of Senator John D. Rockefeller, IV, in Washington.

    Course: Communicating with Confidence 

    Speaker: Caryn Tierney, RDH, BSDH, MA, Clinical Educator North Central Region, Dentslpy Sirona

    Course Objectives:

    Understanding the importance of relationships and the steps involved in creating an environment of trust and confidence between patient and practitioner are essential factors in helping patients feel comfortable when making dental decisions. But what factors drive the decision making process of dental patients? How does confidence in communication impact patient decisions and contribute to patient retention and treatment acceptance? Why is a comprehensive hygiene examination so critical to treatment acceptance and collectively what role do these dynamics play in building patient trust and practice revenue? This course will review factors that influence dental patient’s decision making and discuss the basic concepts of effective communication and relationship building. The importance of collaboration, co-diagnosis, and communication between the doctor and the hygienist will be highlighted including tips for implementing an efficient, consistent, and productive hygiene examination.
