The hygiene appointment sequence is a professionally inherited system. While being critical in developing and establishing our responsibilities as clinicians, it can become monotonous and leave little room for individuality or personal satisfaction. In a day full of predictability in a profession at high risk for burnout, why not insert sparks of joy and curate an appointment sequence all your own? Could you imagine having a methodology that is time efficient, leaves your patients wanting more of you, and you feeling more personally satisfied? The Unconventional Hygienist will discuss gems shared by adept (seasoned/cherished) hygienists that have been merged into our tried and true appointment sequence. Attendees will learn ways to spark joy during their daily sequence by inserting personal preferences that could foster more self-empowerment and time to do things that we love i.e. breath, hear ourselves think, potty breaks, water break, snacks.

As dental professionals, we are responsible for performing a variety of treatments for our patients. One that is often overlooked or completed in a hurry, is the oral cancer exam and educating patients on oral cancer. There are two prominent oral cancers, HPV and squamous cell carcinoma, that present with identifying characteristics separate from one another. It is the dental professional’s job to conduct a thorough intraoral and extraoral examination/assessment and not hesitate in informing the patient of the task being completed or the findings. This 1 hour course will review the differences between oral cancers, how to properly record finding, the importance of informing the patients, and so much more!
