On this week’s episode of Fast Facts – Perio Edition your host, Katrina Sanders, RDH gives us a brief overview of the 2017 AAP classification system!
“ So know that when a patient sits down in your chair, the Academy expects you to identify, is this patient a periodontal healthy patient? Is this patient a gingivally healthy patient?”
“Stay tuned, because if a patient is diagnosed with periodontitis, this is where we begin staging and grading the patient.”
