Hygiene: Advanced Technologies

Course Type: Hygiene

This course is designed to optimize your LVI journey by identifying missing links in your practice and enhancing the return on your LVI educational investment by boosting your practice’s hygiene efficiency.

The “mouth body” connection can take your practice to the next level, by presenting opportunities to streamline your hygiene department while integrating the ultimate in comprehensive patient care.

Ask yourself:

  • What does the Ultimate hygiene department look like?
  • Is your hygienist frustrated with “not enough” time to do everything you ask her to do?
  • Would you like to have patients that no longer bleed even just a ‘little bit’?
  • How strong is your hygienist in restorative pre-diagnostic and case presentation skills?
  • How can you merge healthier teeth with the healthiest tissue?

“I have been a dental hygienist for more than 30 years and continue to be amazed with all of the changes in Dental Hygiene especially in the last 10 years. Fortunately I work for two great dentists (Dr. Ed and Kyan Reeves) who continue to strive to be the best. They introduced me to LVI at least 5 years ago. I have been to te Advanced Hygiene curriculum twice and each time I learn someting different and exciting. Most of the new technology in hygiene I have learned at LVI through their hands-on instruction which is what I love. Most continuing education courses are lecture only. The LVI family are the best!”
