Luncheons for Learning
Use of Local Site Antibiotics in Periododontal Training



One day a month a speaker discusses a dental topic during lunch. The sessions are informal and the group has an opportunity to interact with the speaker during a short discussion period at the end of the lecture. It requires only about one and one-half hour of your time to learn the latest developments in many areas of
dentistry. It also offers the opportunity to get better acquainted with your colleagues and their staff since all dental allied personnel and technicians are also invited to attend.

The presentation will review different local site antibiotics for non-surgical periodontal therapy. Dr Finlayson will discuss the indications for use, where to use them most effectively, in addition to the effectiveness and alternative non-surgical treatments.

• Following the course, the attendee will:
• Learn the indications for use
• Where to use them most effectively
• Effectiveness and alternative non-surgical treatments
