Come join us for a dinner meeting

Caries Management by Risk Assessment, or CAMBRA, represents a shift from simply treating caries to proactive prevention and treatment. Through learning about CAMBRA, and implementing the recommendations and protocols, dental clinicians have a valuable opportunity to help patients take charge of their oral health.

Despite mounting clinical evidence demonstrating the usefulness and effectiveness of CAMBRA, the guidelines have yet to be adopted in many private practices. For dental clinicians, CAMBRA represents a valuable opportunity to increase patient education, acceptance to treatment, practice productivity and profitability.

This program is suited for Pediatric, Orthodontic, Periodontal, Prosthodontic, and General Dentists as well as Hygienists and Dental Assistants.

Objectives:

  • Determine how to evaluate a patient’s disease indicators, risk factors and protective factors to determine their level of caries risk.

  • Understand accepted clinical guidelines and treatment options to help patients manage existing oral health issues based on their level of risk.

  • Understand how risk assessment can help to identify the appropriate restorative treatment plan depending on the patient’s risk level.

  • Learn how to increase patient acceptance of oral disease treatment options using proven clinician/patient communication techniques.

  • Learn how to use risk assessment and prevention to increase hygiene production.

  • Learn how to use risk assessment to establish and implement a successful preventive program.

    This program is suited for Pediatric, Orthodontic, Periodontal, Prosthodontic, General dentists and hygienists.
