Failure to diagnose periodontal disease is consistently a top complaint filed with state dental boards. The first step in treating and managing a patient's care (with maximum insurance reimbursement) is diagnosing disease accurately, ethically, and comprehensively.

As diagnostics continually evolve, dental providers are encouraged to put down the scaler and pick up the probe. Active and appropriate diagnosis leads to comprehensive and effective therapy. This course walks the dental provider through the nine classifications of health and disease as established by the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP), as well as effective clinical decision-making in the management of each diagnosis.

Learning Objectives:

1. Review clinical parameters involved in distinguishing periodontal classifications, including contrasting terms of gingival disease and periodontitis. 

2. Discuss the paradigm shift within the nonsurgical approach to periodontal therapy.

3. List, describe and differentiate the various periodontal diseases.
