“White Spot Remineralization: Healing and Repair without a Drill”
Chalky cervicals, fluorosis and white spots from orthodontic treatment can be healed with minimal intervention using Recaldent® This course will
provide easy to implement techniques for reversing and preventing unsightly white spot lesions. Case studies will show real results in healing mild to
severe fluorosis, decalcification and marks from orthodontic treatment. Family Practitioners, Dental Hygienists, Orthodontists and Pediatric Dentists
are strongly encouraged to attend this informative presentation.

“Our Patients Say: A Team Approach to Motivating the Less Compliant”
Dental Professionals have heard every excuse in the book from patients who don't complete treatment, follow home care instructions or accept
treatment plans. Many of these 'excuses' are actually signs of apprehension, misunderstanding or even fear. As a team, learn to recognize roadblocks
to patient compliance and address the root cause. Utilizing patient comfort techniques, pain control and anxiety decreasing tools can change the
perception of the 'less compliant' patient and the professionals who treat them.

             Highlights of the Dental Hygiene Committee of California meeting
                              Sacramento, December 4-6, 2010

       The DHCC reviewed active dental hygiene licensure statistics; 17,870 RDH’s, 31 RDHEF’s, and 304
       RDHAP’s. Twenty fictitious name permits have been issued.
       Overall results of the 2010 RDH clinical examinations show an 81% pass rate.
       The DHCC is investigating the development of an alternative testing method to administer the law and
       ethics written exam.
       The DBC is working on requirements for approval of courses in local anesthetic, nitrous oxide-oxygen
       analgesia and periodontal soft tissue curettage; Sacramento City college is currently the only location
       for this coursework (outside the dental hygiene program curriculum).
       A sub-committee has been appointed to investigate alternative methods of initial licensure through a
       standardized exit exam for California graduates.
       Enforcement Investigations reveal the areas of greatest complaint involves negligence and unlicensed
       (or expired license) practice.
       Many hours were spent refining “clean up” language for the Business and Professions Code
       1900-1966.6, also known as the Dental Hygiene Practice Act, the enactment of which permits the full
       utilization of registered dental hygienists, RDHEFs, and RDHAPs in order to meet the dental care
       needs of all of the state’s citizens. The final product will be submitted to the legislature for enactment.
       The DHCC heard a proposal to initiate on-line automated license renewal.

                                       Frequently Asked Questions
1. Can an RDH Provide Local Anesthesia when the Employer/Dentist is Out of the Office?
      The dentist/employer of record must be present during the procedure. A neighboring non-employer,
      non-dentist of record may not supervise direct-supervision procedures.

2. How do I know if I am an employee or an independent contractor?
      The person I work for tells me that I am an independent contractor and not an employee. He does not
      make any payroll deductions or withholdings for taxes, social security, etc., when he pays me, and at
      the end of the year he provides me with an IRS form 1099 rather than a W-2. By paying me in this
      manner does it mean I am automatically an independent contractor?

       The California Department of Industrial Relations provides answers to these and other questions on
       independent contractors at the following link: "

        California Dental Hygienists’ Association Urges Routine Office Screenings

GLENDALE, Calif. (Jan. 6, 2011) – To quit smoking and drinking remain worthy and recommended public
health resolutions for 2011 but they are not enough to prevent oral cancer, the California Dental Hygienists’
Association (CDHA) warned today.
“Tobacco and alcohol use are no longer the only major risk factors for oral cancer,” reports Ellen Standley,
CDHA President. “The fastest growing segment of oral cancer victims is the non-smoker under 50 years of
The latest statistics indicate that over the next decade, exposure to the Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) will
likely replace tobacco as the main causative agent for oral cancer, according to the latest research. The HPV
positive group, specifically the strain responsible for cervical cancer, is a rapidly growing segment of the oral
cancer population. This new high-risk group includes persons under 40 who have never smoked or abused
Registered Dental Hygienists play a front-line role in the battle against oral cancers, which kill more than 8,000
Americans each year even though such diseases are usually treated successfully when detected early.
“Because of this we are more emphatic than ever about the need for screenings and early detection efforts
during routine dental visits,” Standley said. “And we are advocating that patients adopt a number of preventive
measures to help reduce their risk for developing oral cancer.”
CDHA credits the “Michael Douglas Factor” with helping to raise awareness about the disease; the famous
actor has been extremely vocal in discussing his recently diagnosed oral cancer.
To further public education, CDHA recommends Californians understand the following information and
prevention tips.

Key Facts:

       • 36,000 new cases of oral cancer are reported annually; that number continues to grow
       • There are 8,000 deaths due to oral cancer per year
       • Most of the cases of oral cancer are discovered in later stages, with only a 50% survival rate after five
         years When discovered in early stages, treatment has up to a 90% survival rate
       • Tobacco, alcohol and human papilloma virus are risk factors

Prevention Tips:

       • Visit a dental office and be screened at least once a year for oral cancer. Dental hygienists have the
         opportunity to provide quick, painless and simple oral cancer screenings whenever they see a patient.
       • See a physician once a year for a routine physical examination
       • Limit alcohol consumption and all types of tobacco use, including smokeless
       • Avoid behaviors that promote exposure to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs)
       • Limit exposure to UV radiation (lip cancer)
       • Be suspicious of any sore in the mouth or any change in the tissue (color or texture) that lasts longer
         than two weeks
       • Be proactive & take preventive measures in your healthcare; ask questions

“We hope that 2011 will be a breakthrough year for the public’s understanding of oral cancer,” Standley said.
“With a few simple steps, and earlier detection, a lot of lives can be saved.”

                California Children Continue to Face Oral Health Epidemic
       Report Finds the State is “Off Track” in Meeting Dental Needs of Its Children

GLENDALE, Calif. (March 21, 2011) – Despite being one of the most preventable of all diseases, tooth decay
continues to rank as the most widespread public health issue for California children, according to the California
Dental Hygienists’ Association (CDHA).
The warning comes on the heels of a report from the Pew Center on the States, which identified California as
being “off track” when it comes to addressing the dental needs of children.
“Poor oral care contributes to speech impediments, low self-esteem and a wide range of health problems
involving infections,” said Ellen Standley, CDHA President. “It is unfortunate that one in four children has never
even been to a dentist and that tooth decay is five times more prevalent than asthma.”
The Pew Center, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving public policy, issued a “C” grade to
California, where it says more than 750,000 elementary school children had untreated tooth decay in 2006;
conventional wisdom suggests that number is now closer to one million, according to CDHA.
According to the Pew Report, California falls short in key oral healthcare policy benchmarks:
  •     Only 27 percent of California drinking water supplies are fluoridated – far less than the national average
        of 75 percent;

  •    Nationwide, the percentage of dentists’ fees reimbursed by Medicaid is 60 percent, while California
       lagged behind with 34 percent.

CDHA continues to voice related concerns. For instance, many dentists are not comfortable treating infants or
very young children, instead they refer them to a children's specialist (pedodontist). CDHA officials say this
demonstrates why the role of a dental hygienist is so vital.

“The dental hygienist can provide mothers of infants and young children with simple nutritional counseling to
help prevent dental decay,” said Standley. “We are a trusted and reliable source of information about
everything from proper brushing to the safe use of bottles and sippy cups.”

Additionally, disparities exist across race, ethnicity, and type of insurance when it comes to the length of time
between dental care visits. Most dental practices don’t accept Medicaid-enrolled children of any age, said Standley,
and children are seen on an average of 10 times in a medical office before the first dental exam is ever scheduled.

“CDHA continues to make it a priority to raise awareness of pediatric oral health among policy makers, parents
and the public health community,” said Standley. “The good news is that with knowledge and public education,
we can make headway in reducing tooth decay in our children.”
