9:00 AM-12:00 PM - Preventive Prehabilitation of the Oncology Patient
(3 CEUs) 
Kris Potts, RDH, BSDH, FAADH

Course Description: It’s more than screening for oral abnormalities and cleaning the teeth of patients diagnosed with Oral Cancer. Cancer of any type affects everyone, if not personally then as a friend, family member or the patient that comes into your office. We have a unique and important role in an Oncology Care Team. This course covers many of the oral concerns of cancer patients and their caregivers, products available to aid in their treatment of those oral concerns and, a few other aspects of care you may not have previously considered.


12:00 PM-1:00 PM - Lunch and NDHA General Membership Meeting


1:00 PM-4:00 PM - Xylitol, Xerostomia and Puzzle Solving (3 CEs)
Kris Potts, RDH, BSDH, FAADH

Course Description: Caries management by risk assessment (CaMBRA) is an evidence-based approach to recognizing an individual’s risk for dental caries. Taking appropriate steps to reduce risk at the earliest signs and symptoms of disease rather than waiting for irreversible damage to take place is the goal. Kris will discuss the special concerns of individuals suffering from dry mouth and what we as dental professionals can do differently to provide relief. This course will also cover what xylitol really is, its role in a protocol, and how you can treatment plan a home care regimen to keep the mouth comfortable and healthy.
