Philips is generously partnering with ADHA to sponsor this 2023 Philips|ADHA CE Seminar.
It is time for dental hygiene to occupy its rightful place on the healthcare stage and for today’s dental hygienist to feel good about what they do. Join us for a day of fun to recharge and consider our commitment to our patients. Learn a better way to communicate and deliver care that improves oral and overall health and how to make subtle changes in your existing recall routine and change the tone of your dental day.
You’ll also uncover effective strategies to navigate and thrive in the midst of life’s challenges. Within the family of dentistry most of us have faced, or will face, significant setbacks and difficulties. Learn how to be able to wear your professional hat while simultaneously grieving or struggling with anxiety amidst unexpected adversities.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Review the latest evidence-based findings on how oral inflammation and oral microbes affect overall health.
  • Understand how changing the goal of dentistry can help you better help your patients.
  • Learn how to leverage the recall visit to make you the most important piece of the dental puzzle.
  • Realize opportunities to celebrate your successes.
  • Identify the impact emotional stressors have on quality of life and wellness.
  • Examine science supporting a unique recipe for making lemonade.
  • Recognize short and long-term benefits from making lemonade with unexpected lemons of life.
