Dental Hygienists’ Track

               When it comes to patient education, dental hygienists are on the front line, often serving as a liaison
               between the patient and dentist.  Patients look to their hygienists for information on available proce-
               dures and specific treatment being recommended for their oral health care.  Consequently, hygienists
               must possess a broad scope of knowledge relative to dental procedures, techniques, dental materials, and
               treatment outcomes and must be able to relate that knowledge in a manner that engenders compassion and
               confidence.  Our Conference recognizes the unique educational needs and interests of hygienists.  While
               hygienists may register for any continuing education session, the meeting planners give our recommenda-
               tion for the following courses that we feel broaden the scope of hygienists’ field of expertise.
