Lecture Series

What is a Lecture Series?
A lecture series is a multi-part online presentation that focuses on one specific topic highly relevant to the Dental profession. Typically presented in 2 or 3 parts, each part builds on the next as the speaker walks you through the intricacies and nuances of the topic. Designed to be different, these lectures allow for constant interaction and conversation with the speaker to create a superior learning environment.

What Can I Expect?
  • Each part will start promptly at the scheduled time. Depending on the length of the lecture, there will be several planned breaks towards the top of the hour. At this time, there will be a poll to check in with you.
  • These are interactive presentations. We want and encourage your participation! If you have any questions for the presenter, you will place them in the Q&A box and they will be answered. Depending on the topic, these questions will be addressed throughout the presentation or during designated question and answers periods.
  • To encourage dialogue, occasionally the presenter will ask questions of the audience. Feel free to answer!
  • We’ll always wrap up in the allotted time (we know your schedules are packed!).
  • At the end of each part, we’ll review what you can expect in next week’s lecture.


The Consummate Dental Hygiene Department – Understanding Periodontitis, Clinical Process, Mitigating Liability, and Communication

Presented by: Dianne Glasscoe Watterson

While dental hygienists are primarily concerned with removing debris from their patients’ teeth, the reality is that today’s dental hygienist wears many hats. Hygienists need a thorough understanding of periodontal disease etiology and how to help their patients achieve and maintain optimal oral health. They need to understand their role in mitigating liability in the practice while delivering high-quality patient care. Hygienists need to be excellent communicators in discussing needed treatment and homecare considerations using verbiage that inspires confidence and trust. In this four-series live online format, you will obtain useful and current information that will assist your dental hygiene department in becoming the consummate (or best of the best) model of clinical excellence.
