The Pay It Forward Project To Bring Dentistry Back From The COVID-19 Pandemic
Oral Systemic Mastery
In May of this year, Dr. Mike Czubiak, Michelle Strange, and I were planning a very unique live training series. Oral Systemic Mastery. It was a "future proof" look at the technologies and techniques that could define the practice of dental hygiene going forward. Microbiological testing, diode laser therapy, and guided biofilm therapy. Like many plans that all of us had for this year, a pivot occurred. But what did not change was the need for a more health-centric practice model. That has actually increased in the last month. Conversations of how to have a safer office, bioaerosol controls, protecting teams and patients from pathogens. Those are all very topical conversations. But conversations actually covered in our course. I had also just published a new e-book. "Dentistry That Changes Lives, The Road Less Traveled". It is a snapshot of the practices I had helped to develop in the past few years. Dentistry may look significantly different in the coming months and years and I have a very good idea of what that change may look like.
