The Periodontal Therapist Module™ (PTM™) offered by Hygiene Excellence Inc. provides PACE approved science-based continuing education in the form of theoretical lectures and hands-on skills. The hands-on skills in the PTM™ are in a clinical participatory session with a ratio 2:1. The goal is to strive for a higher standard of care in the field of Periodontics and Implantology. During the three possible comprehensive weekends, each dental hygienist will enhance their personal skills and knowledge.
