Challenges Faced in Periodontal Therapy
In this issue’s Clinical Insights column, Timothy J. Hempton, DDS, and Gayathri M. Shenoy, DMD, provide an insightful look at the American Academy of Periodontology’s latest classification system. Dental hygienists are well-versed in nonsurgical periodontal therapy, although that doesn’t make it easy. What do you find most challenging when providing periodontal care? Like Dimensions’ Facebook page at: facebook.com/dimensionsofdentalhygiene and share your thoughts. We may publish your comment in an upcoming edition of our column “Social Commentary” and one respondent will receive a coupon for a free continuing education course.
