The role of a Dental Hygienist has grown and expanded in recent years right alongside dentistry and technology. Hygienists have an even greater responsibility when it comes to managing and maintaining a patient’s dental and systemic health. The Fairfield County Dental Club is exceptionally proud to continue to offer a first-class education to dental professionals in our state-of-the-art facility and teaching center located in the heart of Fairfield, Connecticut. We are very excited to present the speakers for our upcoming 2018-2019 season.
The goal of the Fairfield County Hygiene Club is to provide hygienists with an atmosphere and comradery which promote and further enhance the caliber of the exceptional education and speakers which the study club provides. All licensed dental hygienists are welcome to join the study club and experience the unique opportunity to interact, share, and collaborate with their fellow colleagues. Additionally, we offer continuing education credits for all attended courses.

May 21, 2019 – Ray Ma, DMD – “Challenges in Implant dentistry ”
Dental implants have enjoyed great success over the past 30 years. However, it is possible for complications to occur which may endanger the implant or final restoration. If the problems are not treated, implant failure may result in loss of bone around the implant, crown, and/or the loss of the implant. Just like periodontitis, inflammation around the implant may also endanger overall systemic health of the body. This course will focus on classification, diagnosis and treatment options for peri-implant diseases. It will help clinicians to recognize diseases early so they can be treated effectively. Most importantly, the presentation will discuss how to prevent complications from happening in the first place by way of comprehensive diagnosis and treatment planning.
