"Dying From Dirty Teeth" &

"My Favorite Things...Dental Hygiene Style"

Course Objectives:

"Dying From Dirty Teeth"

As our population continues to age, and more and more people become dependent on nursing home care, the problem of poor oral health is growing quickly. And it turns out that teaching care providers to brush and floss their client’s teeth is not really the best answer. Something needs to be done to stop this epidemic and the needless suffering of our elders. This course addresses oral care issues facing dependent adults, with a focus on nursing home residents and their primary care givers, namely nursing assistants and nurses. This course will get attendees energized about caring for this population. Come hear about opportunities to help this population and feel the excitement! Appropriate for Dentists, Hygienists and Dental Assistants.

After completing this program, the dental professional should be able to:

1. Recognize the massive need for dental professionals to be involved in the oral care of dependent elders and that people in this population are often times dying of dirty teeth.

2. Understand why teaching care teams about brushing and flossing dependent elder’s teeth does not translate to improved oral health of this population.

3. List the various simple advanced treatment modalities that exist to improve the oral health of dependent elders.

4. Discuss the ways a dental professional can assist care teams with improving their oral care efforts.

5. Realize how dental professionals can help dependent adults directly, to not only improve their dental health, but also their systemic health through involvement with HyLife, LLC. 

"My Favorite Things... Dental Hygiene Style"

Angie has been called, “The Oprah of Dental Hygiene” while presenting this course! As Angie teaches how to make decisions on product choices, she mentions items that have made a positive impact on her life as a hygienist. Attendees receive samples of many of the things Angie speaks about. It is not unusual to hear hygienists squeal with delight and cheer during the presentation, much like the Oprah’s audience members used to do during her “Favorite Things” show! Come feel Angie’s passion for improving the lives of hygienists everywhere as she teaches how to make “HyDuctions” and shares the HyDuctions she has made throughout her career.

After completing this program, the dental professional should be able to:

1. Recognize what dental professionals can do to assist their aging patients remain dentally health for their lifetime.

2. List various things that can be done to assist the clinician to practice ergonomically.

3. Understand new technologies available in dental hygiene instruments, interdental cleaning, prophy angles and hand pieces and other items.

4. Identify the role fluoride and xylitol play in the reduction of tooth decay

5. Discuss opportunities that are available for hygienists outside of operatory walls.
