Course Description:

Caries Risk Management is considered best practice in the prevention and treatment of dental caries disease, although early attempts in clinical practice have been overly complicated. Implementing this concept into daily practice affects all management systems in the office, but more importantly, really requires new skills to help coach the patient along their journey to health. This approach has been called Motivational Interviewing, Patient Centered Dentistry, and/or Wellness Coaching. But regardless of the name, the skills are the same. This lecture will present this philosophy and review verbal coaching skills.   


Learning Objectives:

  1.          Upon completion, the participant will be able to identify the common known risk factors and treatment strategies for dental caries.
  2.          Upon completion, the participant will be able to discuss the strategic decisions necessary to successfully implement caries risk assessment into daily practice.  
  3.          Upon completion, the participant will have learned new verbal coaching skills to help their patients achieve health.
