Would you like your primary dental care team to meet high standards of periodontal care, influence behaviour change of patients and fulfil their medico-legal and General Dental Council professional standards? Clinical leaders need the knowledge and confidence to mentor their teams to deliver best practice and improved outcomes for patients.

This one day training course will introduce you to periodontal pathways as developed in Healthy Gums Do Matter, the national clinical guidance.

A recent delegate said: “This perio course was brilliant. It has given me a fresh outlook on how to treat perio disease and my patients are definitely seeing good results. My dentistry has become more rewarding - more complete in that I know I am providing a better level of care.”

An interactive and information packed day will take you through the classification of periodontal disease, the clinical guides and modified bleeding and plaque scores (and reflects the 2016 Basic Periodontal Examination guidelines from the British Society of Periodontology) and the clinical pathways for patients

The training day provides you with all the materials you need to go back to your own practices, train your staff and implement the pathways.

It enables delegates to:

  • Understand the classification of periodontal disease and assessment of periodontal risk
  • Be aware of patient communication principles and tools to support change behaviour
  • Be aware of clinical guides and non-surgical therapy, including a modified plaque and bleeding score methodology
  • Understand the new care pathways for periodontal patients
  • Implement the toolkit within practice
  • Understand their role as clinical leaders

Delegates have said that the benefit to the patients is: “They now have a pathway they can follow, they understand their role in managing their condition and I feel they are accepting more responsibility for the success or otherwise of the treatment. As a result I am seeing more engagement from patients.” For their staff: “We have a structure we can follow, this means we are all singing from the same hymn sheet making interactions with patients easier.
