Three Hottest Trends for 2012

If you’re like me, you’re trying to balance finishing the year strong at work AND preparing for a fun holiday season.  I have to tell you that our Christmas tree doesn’t look much different than it did here on the lot.  It’s been with us about 5 days and we’ve managed to get the lights on but that’s about it. 🙂

I guess I’ve succumbed to my Mother’s suggestion that we skip the breakable ornaments this year. You can probably tell from this photo that Andrew moves a mile a minute. He’s already destroyed two ornaments and any hopes of a beautifully decorated tree with all my ‘vintage’ ornaments are going to have to wait until next year (or the next).

Anyway, check out the call we’re doing next week with international hygiene leader, researcher, writer and speaker Maria Perno Goldie.  If you’ve ever read a hygiene journal, you’ve heard her name.  Stacy, Maria and I are each going to highlight a hot new trend in treatment technology that you’ll want to pay close attention to in 2012.  Let’s get the New Year started right with new concepts that can truly affect our patients’ treatment outcomes.

Stay Inspired,

As a special treat for our Mastermind members, we are thrilled to announce a special guest joining us on the call.   Don’t miss the chance to hear international researcher, speaker, author, editor, and DH clinician, Maria Perno Goldie, RDH, BA, MS. What a way to end 2011!

For our final Mastermind call of 2011, we will be presenting a lively research wrap-up of three of the hottest product trends right now in preventive/therapeutic dentistry:
  • Probiotics and their potential role in perio treatment
  • pH stabilizing products and their influence on fluoride and ACP uptake
  • Xylitol’s use and recommendations for caries control as well as emerging research related to xylitol and perio
