Topic:  Fluoride is NOT just for kids,                                                                                                                    

Course Description:  Throughout history, mankind has constantly been in search of a better way. A better way to travel, to communicate and a better way to educate. Finding a better way requires a plan that involves mapping out ones’ destination, setting a course, carving out a path, and ultimately paving the way.

This program focuses on the innovations and advancements in remineralization products and technologies that will influence and change the delivery of care we provide to our patients starting today.  We will specifically focus on all types of Fluoride.  For years we only gave in-office fluoride for kids up to 16 or 18 years of age…Why? Because that’s when insurance stopped paying. 

We will look at all the different products and figure out when and why to use all of them, as well as discuss motivational techniques to help you. 

Course objectives:

  • Review the importance of fluoride, options and rational
  • Compare the latest products engineered to deliver “calcium and phosphate” and how they interact to improve fluoride uptake
  • Define the mechanism of action and benefits of Silver Diamine Fluoride
  • Review protocols and techniques for SDF placement

Patient Centered Communication via Motivational Interviewing 

  • Evidence based conversational technique that guides a conversation according to a patient’s values and expectations to elicit a change in behavior
  • Utilizes Shared Decision Making where the patient and Oral Care teamwork towards one goal of improving the patients’ health
  • Enables the patient to have a voice, understand their options, risks/benefits, alternatives and gives them power
