Join us for the annual Dental Hygiene Symposium at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry featuring Penny Hatzimanolakis on The Process of Care Model: ADPIE + Biofilm Managements = Guided Biofilm Therapy.


Would you prefer predictive outcomes in clinical practice? Is it important for you to provide preventive care, have the data to customize care and have your patients participate in their oral health? This evidence-based, full-day lecture focuses on the ADPIE process of care model and how to incorporate it within the guided biofilm therapy (GBT) modality in delivering predictive, preventive, personalized and participatory themes, which support the challenges in managing complex oral health conditions.
