About The Event
This is going to be amazing all day event full of learning and fun!
8:00-9 AM Registration/Breakfast
9 AM- Noon Katrina Sanders presents "CRACKING PERIODONTAL CODES WITH CLASS: Diagnostic Decisions"
As diagnostics continually evolve, dental providers are encouraged to put down the scaler and pick up the probe. Active and appropriate diagnosis leads to comprehensive and effective therapy. This course walks the dental provider through the nine classifications of health and disease as established by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), as well as effective clinical decision-making in the management of each diagnosis.
We will review anatomical and clinical observations that aid in the identification of active disease as well as the system for case types and classifying diseases. Gain guidance in coding, narrative suggestions for informed refusal, and templates for appeals to support advanced coverage by third-party payers.
12-1 PM Lunch
12:15-12:45 PM Michelle Martin presents "What's Going on in Utah Public Health"
Michelle will share information from the recently released report about the cost of non-traumatic dental visits in emergency departments across Utah as well as updates on other public health initiatives the Department of Health is working on.
1-3 PM Katrina Sanders presents "ALL TOGETHER NOW: The Oral-Systemic Connection"
The American Academy of Periodontology has clarified its paradigm for dentistry’s role in the Oral-Systemic Link: removing calculus is no longer the gold standard in the management of inflammation. Rather, optimal systemic health begins by implementing new, innovative and evidence-based protocols. These protocols require the dental professional to take an active role in the balance of the oral microflora, the management of inflammation and integrate screening techniques in the dental office. This course offers supportive insight into the systemic health conditions related to active periodontal infections. It offers dental professionals a clear understanding of how their daily work can impact the overall health of patients with these conditions—both positively and negatively. Participants are provided with clear and actionable steps that result in a more ethical, productive and mindful periodontal therapy program for the dental practice.
3-5 PM Dr. Bryce Eagar presents "Sleeping on the Job"
Dr. Eagar will help us identify what the oral health care team needs to know about sleep breathing disorders and oral sleep appliances. Learn how to spot the warning signs.
