Ms. Cheri Wu, RDH

Generously Co-sponsored By Dentsply Sirona

New research shows that Canadian Dental Hygienists are underutilizing and incorrectly implementing ultrasonics.  This fast-paced workshop combines cutting edge teaching methods with active magnetostrictive ultrasonic equipment to focus on complete calculus removal and biofilm assault.  Achieve an improved level of clinical confidence as you are given the opportunity to use manikin heads, typodonts and a variety of inserts to practice ultrasonic instrument selection, sequencing and adaptation.  The application of sound ergonomics and minimizing aerosols will also be discussed.  Learn to work ‘Smarter’ and ‘Not Harder’. 

COURSE OBJECTIVES: 

At the completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Learn technique oversights that hinder clinical outcomes. Demonstrate the most effective principles of ultrasonic instrumentation including, grasp, fulcrum, lateral pressure, activation and adaptation.
  • Determine best practice for insert selection, power level and sequencing based on client assessment data.
  • Demonstrate ultrasonic insert adaptation in a variety of areas; describe the benefits and limitations of straight and curved ultrasonic instruments for debridement.
  • Discuss an improved understanding of how to achieve patient comfort while using ultrasonic technology
