Course Description:
 
Really?! Another whitening lecture?! What is there left to talk about? After all, bleach is bleach! They’re all just peroxides and they all do the same thing! While such comments are common, in reality it’s like saying, “all cars are the same” or “all shoes are the same”. There is some truth to this since they serve similar functions; however, not all do so with the same fit, feel, comfort, speed, and customer satisfaction. Tooth whitening has become a commodity in the eyes of many dental professionals and rather than looking at the differences in quality from one product to the next, many are simply concerned with the price, gimmicks or packaging rather than safety, efficacy, sensitivity and effects on enamel. We will address the truths about whitening – separating fact from fiction – and determine what makes one product superior to the next, while learning how to distinguish between clinical relevance and clever advertising.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• How to communicate and educate your patients more effectively

• The importance of a dentist supervised whitening program versus O.T.C. products

• How to customize percentage of solution, trays or chair-side treatment to better help the patient

• What to do for yellow/brown teeth versus what is best for more severe staining – like tetracycline

• How to increase the number of new patients with internal marketing on tooth whitening

• Evidence based tooth whitening, how to achieve optimum results

• What the evidence shows on tray whitening with and without reservoirs

• Who is more likely to experience sensitivity and how to prevent it

• What can be achieved with chair-side whitening lights

Upon course completion, attendees will be able to confidently recommend products, procedures and treatments that are best for their patients and customize a whitening plan to achieve “realistic” whitening goals, with little to no sensitivity. All the while creating happier patients, with brighter smiles, and adding value to the practice. This course is designed for the entire dental team.
