NYON, Switzerland: Yesterday, the Swiss Dental Academy (SDA) announced on its Facebook page that over 15,000 registrations had been counted for its international 24-hour webinar in preventive dentistry, which was the first of its kind. The SDA thanked all participants and attendees of the webinar series, which was broadcast live on 23 and 24 November.
The upcoming 24-hour webinar organised by EMS and the Swiss Dental Academy is a first in dental continuing education (CE). One of the speakers is Karen Davis, who, in addition to running her own CE company, works as a dental hygienist in Dallas in the US. Dental Tribune International talked to her about the advantages of erythritol, a minimally abrasive air polishing powder, and its edge over other powders, such as glycine, for supra- and subgingival air polishing.
