Incorporating the New AAP Periodontal Classification- Live Event

  • Tuesday, November 17, 2020
  • 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM


Registration is closed

Join MDHA and Kathy Forbes, RDH, BS for a Live Virtual 2 hr. CE on Tuesday November 17th from 6:30-8:30pm.  Kathy will teach everyone how to Incorporate the New AAP Classification on Periodontal and Peri-Implant Disease and Conditions into Your Practice. This course will provide a simple approach and introduce a PATIENT ASSESSMENT WORKSHEET which can be used to determine each patient’s disease status using these new classifications.  Case studies (radiographs and periodontal chartings) will be reviewed so that participants can have a “hands-on” approach to using the worksheet and determining the correct periodontal disease diagnosis.  Once a diagnosis is established, only then can a clinician determine the appropriate dental hygiene treatment for their patients. 

Prior to the course, each registrant will be sent the PATIENT ASSESSMENT WORKSHEET so they can have it during the presentation and be able to photocopy it for use in their practice.

By the end of the presentation, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the 2018 AAP Classifications of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions and compare it to the 1999 AAP Classifications currently in use.
  • Understand how ICD-10 Diagnostic Codes (currently listed in the 2020 CDT Procedure Code Manual) may affect dental hygiene treatment planning.
  • Utilize the PATIENT ASSESSMENT WORKSHEET to determine the AAP Classification of Periodontal and Peri-implant Diseases and Conditions.
