With an increase focus on the Dental Hygienist profession, clinics in the Middle East are becoming more and more aware of the importance of a complete dental team including the Dental Hygienist role.

Following the previous two successful editions, 3rd Dental Hygienist Day will include hot topic presentations on oral care, prevention, evidence-based dentistry, oral prophylaxis, early childhood caries prevention, how diets effect oral health, periodontal disease, diabetes, magnification and ergonomics as well as probiotics from an oral and dental perspective. 9 International Speakers will give their best interpretations of what is best for the Dental Hygienist profession.

The pre-Dental Hygienist Day hands-on course (13 November) will focus on Individually Trained Oral Prophylaxis – iTop, where delegates will learn about Biofilm characteristics, failures in existing oral prophylaxis, technique and tools selection and much more. The full day hands-on course will be given by Dr. Franka Baranovic-Huber from Switzerland. A further Periodontal Instrumentation hands-on course (14 November) will be provided by Mary Rose Pincelli Boglione, Italy on miniaturized instruments in non-surgical periodontal therapy and further how polishing will brighten the smile.

The 3rd Dental Hygienist Day will further host a dedicated exhibition featuring sponsors EMS – Electro Medical Systems, Oral-B, Philips Sonicare, Coswell, Hu-Friedy, Curaden and KERR.
