A Combination of both workshops: Hands-on and How to Teach” Periodontal Instrumentation Workshop

  • “This was my third camp and each time I attend I take the How to Teach Periododontal Instrumentation Workshop. Since I have been using the instrumentation techniques I learned in the camps, I have received several compliments on my clinical skills. The most rewarding was when I was told that I had gifted hands by a general surgeon who was my patient in an office where I was temping.”

    Eleta Reed-Morgan, RDH, MS Clinic Coordinator

    University of TN Health Science Center at Memphis

  • “I heard Cindy’s instrumentation course would “Rock my world”! Having a co-worker describe it to you doesn’t do it justice. You must experience it to believe it. If you want to provide quality care with no harm to your patients without breaking your back to get the job done…. Come to this course. Come with an open mind and let Cindy take your level of care to another level. Cindy, the course is fantastic! Your years of experience and putting it into a teachable form to benefit the greater good is a blessing. Thank you! You have contributed greatly to our profession and I know given time for everyone to jump on board and see the benefits of doing hygiene “your way” will propel our profession to another level. Thank you! You are definitely before your time.”

  • “How to Teach Periodontal Instrumentation” – Excellent! A must for all of your faculty! Just do it!

    Pam Karns

    John A Logan College, IL

  • “The new concepts taught in instrumentation course was excellent!I love your terminology for teaching students. Using fulcrums and leverage to snap calculus rather than scrape was exceptional. How to save the hygienists hands, back and neck. I loved the new instruments as introduced including the facilitated fulcrums. I am excited to bring the concepts back to our school and faculty. The flash drive is an excellent method of disseminating information. Thank you all!”

    Marilyn Kalal

    Quisigamond Community College, Worcester, MA

  • “Thank you for opening the door to a whole new way of thinking.I am excited to implement this new way of scaling on Monday morning. “Precision in Periodontal Instrumentation” gave me a new appreciation for my technique in scaling and has helped me guarantee my longevity in this profession.”

    Nicole Baker, RDH

  • “Thank you for a great instrumentation workshop!I learned to finesse the calculus off versus bullying it off! As the camp progressed I did develop a much lighter grasp with more tactile sensitivity. Thank you Virginia, Marianne + Cindy.”

    Ann Nordquist, RDH

  • “Being relatively fresh out of hygiene school, I was skeptical as to how much I would benefit from this course. I thought it may be a helpful review of techniques learned in school. However, it was so much better than that. I was so impressed with the techniques presented. They were smart, logical and nothing like what I learned in school. I highly recommend this course.”

    Laura Petritsch, RDH

  • “This was an exciting and enlightening course. This will dramatically impact how I practice daily. I look forward to employing all I learned to not only improve my technique, but also make preventive care visits more pleasurable for my patients! To the instructors…… A sincere thank you for all you have taught us. It was a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed getting to know you.”

    Beth Kraft, RDH

  • “I have enjoyed learning and strengthening my clinical skills during this summer boot camp program. I will take away so much valuable information that will benefit not only my patients, because of my more effective instrumentation, but my ergonomics, ensuring more longevity of my career and the overall benefits to my comfort and systemic health.”

    Kiristen McManus, RDH

  • “This is the only instrumentation course you will ever need! This course was the most hands-on with one- on-one instruction I have ever attended. Spreading it out over two days allowed the information to sink in and allow you to perfect the technique by day two. I highly recommend this course to all hygienists, new and seasoned. If I would have been taught these techniques 40 years ago, I would not have ended up with surgery on hands, and wrists. This so much easier while being more efficient and effective.”

    Cynthia Chillock

    Mesa Community College, AZ

  • “This was an excellent class. Thank you for sharing your knowledge-generously – with us. I appreciate the hands-on. The great teacher/student ratio, and all the take home DVD’s for mastering the new, better, kinder techniques. I have been a practicing hygienist for 4 years. I feel that I am still learning my trade, but I understand how habituated we in hygiene become. My peers all stated that they are comfortable with their technique and do not believe they will or can change how they instrument. I love this change in paradigm…..Thank you. I am so excited to apply this to the work I do. And save my hands.”

    Terry Butler, Practicing RDH

  • “太好了!p的内容非常有用eriodontal instrumentation. I learned so much and the reinforcement of basic techniques strengthened me as a preclinic instructor. The better I understand, the better instructor I become. Thanks Cindy and staff for all you do to improve dental hygiene!”

    Mt. Olive, MS

  • “我一直努力成为一个更好的保健师,是excited when my co-worker told me she had found an intense, “hands-on” 12 hour course on instrumentation. I thought I was going to get a refresher course on the fundamentals I learned in hygiene school. Little did I know, this was a course designed to introduce a new way of instrumentation, as we were told to put some of our standard ways of practicing aside, and to embrace a new method that is considered more ergonomically friendly for the hygienist, in addition to saving valuable minutes because the new method actually allows calculus removal more effectively in less strokes. It is never easy to retrain, but I think the new hygienists who will be coming out of school after learning Cindy’s method, will be far ahead of the rest of us. They will also end up practicing longer because the new method is much more friendly to our wrists, shoulders, and backs. Also, in addition to an energy filled hands-on class, we were given a DVD to take home, which is well-made, easy to understand, and worth the price of admission. We drove 13 hours, from Texas to Florida, to attend this 12 hour course, and it was well worth our time and expense to be privileged to participate with instructors and now we, too, can be on the cutting edge with this new method. Be prepared to learn new seating positions, new clinical terms, and very different instrumentation from what we learned in school just a few short years ago. I highly recommend this course for any hygienist that wants to stay current on methodology. It was an awesome weekend, and all the instructors were fabulous.”

    Susan Fuller Johnson, RDH

  • “Overall the class was extremely beneficial, especially in the area of instrumentation. I can hardly wait to try out the “new” working stroke. I will be recommending the camp to all the DH instructors in our program.”

    Nancy Kaley, RDH Lake Washington Technical College

  • “This camp experience was very thorough and informative. The dentaform practice was excellent. I am so enlightened by what I’ve learned. The education attained is to me, like gold! I am looking forward to taking what I’ve learned back to the dental hygiene staff and into clinic to share and implement into our curriculum.”

    Roberta Bird-Wright RDH, BS - Seattle Central Community College

  • “Great 3 day workshop. I have learned so much and have met some wonderful people that I will keep in touch with. I am leaving this course with great tools that I plan on using and implementing into the program. Cindy does an awesome job in presenting and organizing this entire seminar. I plan on practicing more with the techniques I’ve learned with instrumentation and ergonomics. I’ve been practicing acquired habits for 26 years and have neck and back problems, so I plan on teaching my students so that they will not repeat my bad habits. Great job from all the instructors in this course Congrats!”

    Debra S. Harkins

    Middle Georgia Technical College

  • “Great camp attendee/instructor ratio (1:4or 5). All calibrated and taught the same way. All instructors interacted positively with course attendees. Demo’s of corroborative evaluation extremely valuable. Good use of many different instruments. Rotation of instructors wonderful. A must for all faculty teaching in preclinic. TalEval grading system is a wonderful concept. This should help keep students and faculty calibrated. Thank you! I picked up more information in this my second time coming to camp. Reinforced and added to original information. The DVD put into visual format what we have been reading from Jill’s books for years. Excellent use of split screen for clock position. A must for every instructor and every student to go page by page for initial exposure to dental hygiene instrumentation techniques. As a visual profession, this DVD shows, without question, proper patient operator positioning and proper instrumentation techniques. In one word, -FABULOUS”

    Cathleen Korondi

    RDH, B S- Ilinois Central College

  • “Our program has been waiting for a comprehensive instructional instrumentation video for several years. This video will allow students to review at their own pace outside of classroom instruction time. We will immediately incorporate it into our program. It is ideal for small programs with limited number of faculty and will be excellent to calibrate full time and adjunct faculty. Thank you for creating this for the dental hygiene profession.”

Take this course to make your day go more smoothly and you will not be so tired and frustrated with your perio patients!”

    Sarah E.H. Clinton, Fayetteville, GA

  • “This experience was awesome! I would like to come back every 2 years for a refresher course. The advanced perio instrumentation was so informative with the “hands-on” experience. Your instructors are wonderful. I felt “no shame” in the fact that I had not handled some of the instruments before. I got to experience what it feels like to be the student. I believe this will make me more empathetic in the testing part of the lab. Thank you! I will be back again!”

    Colleen Whitt Loma Linda University, CA

The ideas are highly structured and easily adaptable to help programs align with the accreditation standards. We couldn’t ask for a more precisely organized course for educators! Excellent ideas for tips and terms to use teaching students clinically! The hands-on instrumentation training provided quality one-on-one instruction easily adaptable on the clinic floor with students. These ladies are ALL great examples and mentors for the educators at any level of experience. Everyone in the camp seemed to be excited about what we were learning and eager to experience more! This is by far the most organized, best structured, and highest quality course directed specifically towards dental hygiene education! I’ve been a full time hygienist for 15 years and found the instrumentation instruction to be easily applicable to all aspects of dental hygiene practice as well as improving clinical education skills.
