The RDH’s Guide to HVE Technique 

Thursday October 22, 2020 7PM PST

Speaker: Ms. Dani Botbyl, RDH, Bed    dani.ultrasoniccoach



Course Description:
The COVID-19 pandemic has created a huge surge in the number of dental hygienists using HVE. If used incorrectly, this device can be clinically ineffective and can be a detriment to the musculoskeletal health of the user. With the use of clinical images and video, participants will be shown safe, effective options for combining HVE device positioning with ergonomically sound patient-clinician positioning. Tips and tricks to avoid soft tissue aspiration will also be presented.


Learning Objectives:
• Describe how to efficiently sequence an intra-oral HVE device in four quadrants using a two-handed technique (single-person operator).
• Discuss options for the use of indirect and direction vision to enhance visibility and ergonomics during an aerosol generating procedure.
• Identify the 3 elements of an effective HVE System and analyze how the absence of each impacts the capture of droplets, splatter and aerosols.
