Presented by one of dentistry’s leading power couples who work side by side in their aptly named practice, “Dental Care With a Difference.”


Webinar Description: Are your patients frustrated because they are told they are not “brushing and flossing” well enough? Is that perhaps because they are being “told” to do it rather than shown how to do it?

The concept of oral management varies from individual to individual and is dependent upon what we are taught or perceive during our lifetime. For some the process is very easy and comes naturally, while for others it is a constant struggle because picturing the end result may not be so clear.

Our job as dental professionals is to provide the needed tools and directions to our patients so that they can succeed in the removal of the biofilm that creates oral disease. Without knowledge, there will not be healing.

This webinar will discuss the various discoveries in helping patients manage their oral health, and include the “trials and tribulations” experienced over the years of care for numerous patients.
