NEW YORK, U.S.: The digital advancements of the world are revolutionizing many different fields. Dentistry is most certainly included in the revolution and in an upcoming free Dental Tribune Study Club webinar on Tuesday, Oct. 23, an expert will be discussing a new mobile phone application. BOB is designed for both patients and practitioners alike and aims to increase health and revenue purely through prevention.

During the webinar, host Theodora Little RDH, will be discussing how BOB can bridge the ‘interdental gap’ between increasing patient health and partitioner revenue by performing prevention in a different way. According to Little, the BOB score not only provides an effective but quick bleeding score, it also has an interdental brush mouth map that the patient can use at home.

A qualified dental hygienist and dental therapist, Little has worked in both the UK and Switzerland, with a focus on and passion for prevention. She is an iTOP (individually trained oral prevention) instructor and was a finalist at the DHT Awards ‘Under 30s Dental Therapist’ in 2015 and the FMC awards ‘Best Leader of Prevention’ 2017.

The 1-hour webinar, titled “Have you been BOB’ed?,” will be broadcast live on Tuesday, Oct. 23, at 1 p.m. EDT. Attendance is free of charge after easy registration on the website. Participants will be able to ask questions via a chat window and will have the opportunity to earn a continuing education credit by completing a multiple-choice questionnaire on the topic.

Dental professionals who are interested in attending the course may register online here.
