Pacific Dental Services (PDS) and Colgate Oral Pharmaceuticals will be highlighting salivary diagnostics in a webinar on March 31 at 12 p.m. PT.
The webinar will provide a review of periodontal disease and will focus on the analysis of oral fluids as a key element in diagnosis and systemic disease management, according to PDS and Colgate. It will also review the application of inflammatory biomarkers for assessment of oral health, presenting evidence for the use of a test that measures active matrix metalloproteinase-8 in both gingival fluid and saliva, the companies said. The course will wrap up with a discussion about the practical application of this approach to periodontal diagnosis in both the general and specialty dental practice.
The webinar, which will offer one free continuing education credit to attendees, will be held on Thursday, March 31 at 12 pm PT. More information can be found on Colgate's website.
