    The assessment skills of the Dental Hygienist play an integral part in identifying a client that would benefit from orthodontic treatment. Our role in the pre-treatment phase will be reviewed, including a client risk assessment evaluation.

    Every rdhu course begins with an exercise to assist you:

    • in creating your goal statement
    • by suggesting other activities to ‘layer’ your learning
    • in accessing resources to meet your goal
    • in implementing your new knowledge for the benefit of your clients and to meet dental hygiene quality assurance requirements.

    At rdhu, we are committed to supporting our members every step of the way.

    Dental Hygienists require a heightened awareness to: identify the distinct challenges of our orthodontic clients, create next steps and to advocate for our client’s needs. Education, prevention and support are the major facets of our role with the orthodontic client.

    Providing debridement during orthodontic therapy can be complicated. We will examine instrumentation options and other therapeutic techniques.

    Finally, when our clients have achieved their goal and are at the end of their orthodontic journey, it is important to re-evaluate and assist in the direction of the post-orthodontic recovery phase.

    Learning Objectives

    • To identify clients who would benefit from orthodontic treatment.
    • To review the process of care for the orthodontic client.
    • To understand the challenges for clients in orthodontic treatment.
    • To examine the opportunities and options for support and prevention.
    • To examine instrumentation challenges and options for client therapy.
    • To identify post orthodontic treatment options through a thorough re-assessment of your client.

    Learners will be able to identify the requirements of intervention documentation in orthodontic and general practice.

    Learners will acquire an increased knowledge of strategies on how to fulfill the requirements that the CDHO deems essential in completing comprehensive, accurate documentation within the client’s chart for each client interaction.
