Course Description: The most important health care provider that a patient can partner with to achieve the highest level of wellness is a dental hygienist, who does more than clean teeth. Many of the risk factors for periodontal disease are also risk factors for other systemic diseases. Recognizing and helping patients modify these factors has the potential to improve patients' oral and overall health. This session will present a step-by-step guide to make it as easy as possible for today's RDH to occupy their rightful place on the health care stage. What to ask, what to say, and what to do will be presented in a format that can be immediately implemented in your practice. *Note: This course offers a closed-captioned option as well as auto-translated subtitles in 10 languages.
