- How will I transform as a clinician after this course?
Once you've completed this course, you're going to feel so confident with everything you do. For example, the new classification. I know it can be confusing right now and it feels like it's going to take forever to apply it in practice, but I promise you'll be able to apply it in 20 seconds.
You'll know exactly what the diagnostic statement is. You're going to be able to explain with clarity to your patients what Periodontitis actually is, using terms like open and closed pockets whilst explaining what is needed. You see their face just light up when they understand what you're saying to them and thus you'll get good patient compliance.
Right now you might be struggling with those patients coming in that aren't adhering to oral hygiene instructions. I will show you a few things you can do in the time you get in practice to really transform a patient and really transform a patient's motivation.
With treatment you'll know what improvements you should be expecting. Like for example, if you've got a seven millimeter pocket, do you know how much average improvement you should be expecting? We need to know those figures. You need to know what you can do on band one or band two on the NHS. What is allowed? What isn't allowed? When do you close off a course of treatment?
What about the BPE? When do you refer? Which BPE code you need to refer? What do you say to your patient? What are you allowed to say? What can you refer to the NHS? What about when you refer to private? What are the differences?
You'll know that the actual detailed steps of procedures such as crown lengthening and actually importantly understand the theory behind it.
A lot of people might be doing crown lengthening right now, but do they know what the biologic width is? Do they know the importance of respecting that? Do they know the right order of treatment?
You will become an all rounded, excellent Dentist, Hygienist or Therapist understanding Perio in so much depth and you will really start to enjoy it.
