Annual gross domestic product dollars spent on oral care in the US continues to decrease. Concurrently, prevalence rates of periodontal disease and the percentage of dentally uninsured adults is increasing.

This course will discuss current research trends in biofilm management that utilize the most current technology available on the market. In order to emphasize the relationship between oral and systemic disease states, the oral microbiome states of symbiosis and dysbiosis will be presented along with the role genetics plays in the management of oral health.
