With the recent changes in the periodontal classification system, your dental hygiene world may feel like it has been turned upside down – everything you have known and practiced regarding periodontal classification is new and different. The previous classification system was last updated in 1999 so this change is a big deal! If you are struggling to understand the new classification system or have had an introduction to system, but are wanting to understand it better, this workshop is for you. The workshop will provide participants with an overview of the new classification system as well as an opportunity to apply the new information to case studies.
