DE0647: Indian Country Echo Sessions on Minimally Invasive Dentistry [Virtual]
This Indian Country ECHO session will provide information for oral health clinicians and staff serving American Indian and Alaska Native people to effectively provide comprehensive dental care while optimizing minimally invasive dentistry [MID] techniques. Each session will be divided into a didactic presentation, a case study, and a period of discussion/Q & A, diving into the revolution of non-invasive techniques to protect vulnerable populations from oral disease. We will ensure that all dental team members understand the principles of MID knowing where to find the evidence, and able to support their own staff who will be performing the MID techniques.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Build minimally invasive dentistry skills
2. Recognize risk factors and apply preventive measures to reduce the occurrence of oral health disease
3. Learn techniques on how to treat patients with holistic and culturally appropriate care
