A pivot to preventative protocols.

Salivary diagnostics have been available in dentistry for some time. While adaptation has been slow, the more recent correlation between systemic disease and oral pathogens has made this information all the more compelling. The increased knowledge around oral dysbiosis and dental implant failure makes it an essential tool.

Dr. Thomas Larkin presents Salivary Diagnostics in Dentistry – an insightful program demonstrating why it’s time to pivot from the restorative model of dentistry to more preventative protocols. Attendees will further explore the pathway to helping patients become more independently healthy

Learning Objectives
  • Review the 3 types of salivary testing.
  • Learn the risk assessment model.
  • Understand the identification and interpretation of results.
  • How to integrate test results into treatment plans.
  • Discuss preparing for health versus reacting to disease.
