COURSE DETAILS:

Over 50 years of extensive research has consistently demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of fluorides in the prevention of dental caries. Professional fluoride treatments have changed over the years, giving practices many treatment options  from which to choose. Currently, the evidence-based choice of fluoride delivery is a varnish treatment which results in less fluoride ingestion and allows for a slower release of fluoride to the tooth surface, aiding in remineralization.

This course will explore topical fluoride treatments, what constitutes an effective varnish, the ease of the application process and client evaluation utilizing the Caries Management By Risk Assessment (CAMBRA) – an effective tool that helps to determine the need for an in-office fluoride treatment.

Hello MDHA Members!

 

The MDHA Board of Directors has been approached by an MDHA member asking for assistance in advocating for our profession by lobbying the Provincial Government to change current legislation that would enable dental hygienists to apply their full scope of practice, without restriction in order to improved access to dental hygiene care for all Manitobans.

 

The MDHA Board of Directors is inviting all members to participate in a letter writing campaign to the Minister of Health and to your local Member of the Legislative Assembly. Participating is easy! Simply click on the link below and follow the directions. This letter campaign is not only for dental hygienists but also for our families, friends, and our patients. Please share this link with those who believe all Manitobans are entitled to better access to dental hygiene care.
