Microbial organisms are phenomenal creatures capable of impacting our lives in a variety of positive and negative ways. Because the oral cavity contains the highest concentration of microbes in or on the human body, it is imperative that healthcare providers understand oral bacterial dynamics in order to render effective care and provide patients with appropriate treatment recommendations. Microbiology—an often daunting field of study to master—will be presented to course participants in a relaxed, fun, dynamic manner that maximizes learning while providing truly amazing facts to ponder and incorporate into treatment strategies. Be prepared to be amazed by the microscopic world!
