Marianne Dryer, RDH is the owner pf CE Renewed Inc., and a speaker, educator and corporate consultant in curriculum development. She has lectured nationally and internationally on periodontal instrumentation with a focus on ultrasonic technique, risk assessment, infection prevention and radiology technique.

The updated AAP classification system created in 2017 represents a multi-dimensional staging and grading framework for periodontitis and implant disease status. This course will examine the concepts of staging and grading to classify each patient by complexity of case management, likelihood of less predictable response to therapy, and potential for periodontitis development. A hallmark feature of the updated system brings opportunities for more case specific patient care. The need for calibration and clinician alignment with the new classification system along with appropriate treatment and homecare recommendations will be discussed.

After this course attendees will be able to:
  • Examine the historical timeline and evolution of the AAP Classification System
  • Discuss the new staging and grading system for periodontal disease and how it will benefit patient care and management
  • Create treatment modalities that are evidence-based protocols for specific types of periodontal diseases according to the new classification system
  • Identify patients who may benefit from adjunctive strategies of disease management and overall reduction of bioburden through teledentistry approach
  • Develop individualized homecare regimens utilizing staging and grading to motivate and encourage patients to improve their oral health
