ODHA 2016 PROVINCIAL CONFERENCE
Hamilton Convention Centre, 1 Summers Lane Hamilton ON

Dr. Jim Hyland, BSc DDS and Kerry Lepicek RDH present:

Shifting the Client Focus: Closing the Oral-Systemic Gap

This session responds to why 75 per cent of clients continue to have periodontal disease even when they see their dental hygienist twice a year. Change is needed. Learn how a paradigm shift in your approach to diagnosing and treating gum disease can improve the health of 90 per cent of your clients in just a few short weeks. This presentation will explore some of the reasons behind the growing threat to oral and systemic health and will describe solutions. Involving the client in the diagnostic process leads them to acceptance of treatment and compliance. Eliminate "bloody prophies" and guide clients toward oral and systemic health.


The presentation will cover:

  • Assessment tools including microbial analysis that help locate and measure periodontal disease
  • A system of communicating with clients that increases acceptance of treatment
  • New techniques for non-invasive, non-surgical periodontal therapy (NSPT) using an antibiotic rinse system


Presenters:

  • Dr. Jim Hyland B.Sc., DDS graduated from the University of Toronto in 1976 and has always been one of the first to implement the latest techniques, research and philosophies in oral care. In addition to private practice, Dr. Hyland's experience includes teaching at U of T Faculty of Dentistry, Seneca College and George Brown College as well as serving as the dental staff member of the North York Hospital. He regularly lectures and writes on a variety of topics related to diagnosis and treatment of periodontal disease as an oral infection, interceptive preventive care, decreasing the oral systemic risk and breath odour. In 2014 he launched GumGuardians.com to educate the public about the connection between the health of their gums and systemic wellness, and to provide the latest information about how to prevent and to treat gum disease and breath odour.
  • Kerry Lepicek, RDH is a highly focused and engaging presenter with over a decade of experience using an interceptive and preventive approach to treating periodontal disease and breath odour. She will leave you with many things you can take away and start to use in your practice the next day. Kerry is currently the OraVital® Wellness Coaching Manager for North America and has been active in helping to shape the future of the company. Kerry has been clinically implementing the OraVital® System since 2007.

Dr. Jim Hyland, BSc DDS, Anne Bosy, RDH MEd MSc, and Kerry Lepicek RDH present:

Eliminate the Cause of Infection: Managing the Symptoms is Not Enough!

The reality of paradigm paralysis: the inability to see beyond the current models of thinking.


Biofilms that induce diseases like periodontitis resist clearance by host defences and when left undisturbed for some time become increasingly pathogenic. To improve the results in periodontal disease treatment or the treatment of halitosis, oral microbiological diagnostics are combined with adjunctive antibiotic rinses in addition to mechanical debridement.


By using a topical antibiotic application through a rinse and spit method, we can amplify the effect compared to systemic antibiotics used to treat periodontal disease and avoid almost all side effects and pharmacological interactions that may occur. This method of topical application is rapid and effective. The change in biofilm alters the inflammatory response from the polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN's) and there is a significant amount of healing of gingivitis and periodontitis with 4-7 mm pockets. Once the biofilm is within normal limits, a personalized maintenance system and a good oral hygiene program will keep oral biofilm under control.

Dr. Jim Hyland DDS and Kerry Lepicek RDH

Patients don't understand why bleeding in the mouth is linked to their overall health.


This seminar provides an opportunity to reinvent your hygiene program to focus on overall health. Discussing the oral systemic link can be difficult with patients who have diabetes, heart disease or a family history of Alzheimer's. Learn easy ways to motivate every patient toward overall health.


You will take away verbal skills and the knowledge of how to back them up with techniques to stop gingivitis and early to moderate periodontal disease in 4 weeks, in 90% of cases. Learn how to use disclosing and the Papillary Bleeding Score to demonstrate infection and emotionally move patients to ask "How do I stop the bleeding?" instead of "Does my insurance cover this?". This approach overcomes financial objections and leads the practice towards periodontal hygiene appointments and away from bloody prophys.


Learn how to:

  • Reinvent the hygiene appointment so it is focused on health and wellness, vs. procedures provided.
  • Provide a 360 degree approach to the assessment and treatment of gingivitis and periodontitis.
  • Use alternatives to floss that are more effective, and that patients will use to control their disease. In-office treatment is best supported by an equally effective home protocol.
  • Explain how patients catch and spread periodontal disease.
  • Use antibiotic mouth rinses to treat and control gingivitis, periodontal disease and breath odour.
  • Explain why microbial testing is recommended, and how it's used to plan your treatment to help control pathogenic bacteria.
  • Use BiofilmDNA™ analysis to identify each patient's periodontal and caries risks in detail.
  • Use re-evaluation appointments to increase patient compliance.

The OraVital® System is clinically proven to eliminate mild to moderate gum disease and bad breath. The system identifies the cause via site-specific BiofilmDNA™ and BiofilmGS™ (Gram Stain) oral microbial analysis, and provides effective, non surgical treatment solutions.

OraVital® has the solution to the frustrating oral infection problems encountered on a daily basis in every practice. OraVital® breaks the oral systemic link and helps you heal your patients.

Michelle Aubé-Simmonds RDH:

Stop Re-Infection! 360° Approach to Non-Surgical Periodontal Therapy (NSPT)

The role of the RDH goes much further than debridement alone. Debridement is a core component of NSPT, however NSPT must have a system that ensures clients receive optimal oral care to stop the chronic nature of periodontitis. This includes tightening up your NSPT to stop 'Re-Infection'. There is no prouder moment for an RDH than to see a positive soft tissue response and improvements in overall oral health. How can this be maintained so the client avoids the cycle of infection and inflammation? Is your NSPT supporting your clients in a full 360? approach? Map out NSPT in a flow chart to understand its structure and evaluate whether you have the proper critical thinking, planning and armamentarium to do the job. Discuss combining ultrasonic with hand scaling and the selection of specialty instruments. Visit the proper use of 're-evaluations' to closely monitor tissue response and not relapse to inflammation. Analyze the effectiveness of maintenance frequencies. Consider how the interval selection of 3 months versus 4 - 4.5 months makes a significant impact on some clients, and when to graduate clients to different frequencies of continuous care. This is not a theory course on periodontics but rather an analytical view of structuring a solid NSPT from a full 360° supportive approach.

'Best Practice' Decisions Should Not Be Costly Decisions!

Michelle Aubé-Simmonds RDH

Best Practice for Office Infection Control, Sterilization Monitoring, & Fluoride Varnish

The focus of a typical day in the dental office allows for the planning and delivery of high quality, patient/client centered care, but does not always allow for lengthy team conversing on topics that surround the day-to-day functions and materials of the dental office. 'Best Practice' must follow the regulatory bodies' standards of care, while product selection for best practice must be effective and controlled to prevent overstocking and over budget spending.

Intra-Oral Infection Control for Breath Odour and Periodontal Disease

Kerry Lepicek RDH

Infection control in the mouth is just as important as infection control in your office. Diagnose and treat oral infections in a visual and emotional way using objective tests that get patients/clients asking "How do I get healthy?". Learn how to introduce your patients to the oral-systemic concerns that are associated with bad breath, gingivitis and periodontal disease, and to show them how these issues can affect their overall health.

Free Webcast Thursday, Dec 18, 2014 7:00-8:30pm CST

Dr. Jim Hyland DDS presents:

Stop the Bleeding!

Predictably and consistently control the cause of periodontal disease, breath odour and other links to oral systemic health.

If, as surveys suggest, 75% of patients have gum disease as defined by bleeding when tissues are touched then, by any measure, our treatment modalities fall short of effective disease management.

Physicians have zero tolerance for bleeding and patients readily accept this. It needs to be the same in dentistry.

In this fast paced event Dr Hyland presents the process for transforming the hygiene experience to tackle pathogenic biofilms that are the cause, rather than a symptom of, the infection.

In office biofilm control consisting of microbiological testing and antibiotic rinses coupled with unique home care technique are the 'one two punch' Dr. Hyland delivers in effective hygiene care.

Kerry Lepicek RDH: One Size Does Not Fit All!

The Role of Antibiotic and Antibacterial Mouth Rinses in NSPT, Based on Individualisation

When educating clients about the systemic links to oral health, are you offering supportive adjuncts that motivate your clients to change? How do you approach clients that are not showing desired results from early to advanced NSPT (non-surgical perio therapy)? How are you treating the complete range of mild to severe gingivitis? Clients need to see tangible change. Consider exploring a review of the microbiology of oral flora, and how mouth rinses can be used as supportive adjuncts to your existing therapy and/or as an overall support of the oral and systemic well-being of each of your clients.

One size does not fit all! Learn how to recognise various microbes and how to choose the appropriate mouth rinse to 'fit' that client's needs in both active treatment and maintenance of microbes. Not all mouth rinses will 'fit' your client's needs - just as not every mouth will present the same oral flora. Learn a criteria system to determine your client's needs. Receive the tools you need for chairside education and motivation, as well as the resources for in-office training to incorporate microbiology testing as part of your assessment phase of process of care.

Dr. Jim Hyland, DDS:
Stop The Bleeding! Eliminate the Cause of Infection: Managing Symptoms is Not Enough


Do you own your patients' dental disease? Do your patients blame you for their periodontal problems? Does your practice maintain dental disease or promote health & wellness to your patients? Learn about Dr. Hyland's innovative script which clearly illustrates periodontal disease stages to patients, and the methods he uses to shift the responsibility of becoming healthy to the patient. Dr. Hyland will describe methods he uses in his dental practice to achieve patient wellness.
