About Our Presenter
Tanya Dunlap, PhD
As the Managing Director for Perio Protect, LLC, Tanya Dunlap, PhD coordinates clinical research involving prescription tray delivery and explains the important implications of research results to dental professionals.
She also identifies obstacles to, and excellence in, treatment implementation to help dental teams recognize their limitations and opportunities for improved patient health.
47% of American adults have periodontitis. We can reduce this number if we combine scaling with effective chemical debridement and oxygenation to decrease bacterial loads.
Using a prescription tray, patients deliver medication into pockets in short intervals, at home between office visits. Research shows that this delivery, combined with scaling, leads to more significant pocket depth and bleeding reductions than scaling alone.
Learn the science behind this technique to help your patients achieve better results and to create a firm gingival foundation for your work into the future.
As an attendee you will learn:
- To understand the limitations of antibiotic approaches to biofilm management and the benefits of peroxides
- How to incorporate antibiofilm therapies into existing treatment plans
- How to best help patients augment homecare regimes to manage periopathogens daily
- A deeper understanding of the limitations of adjunctive prescription trays when surgery is needed
