                        Patient Education Project
                   DHYG 134 (coordinates with DHYG 132)
This project is designed to give you an opportunity to increase your knowledge of
plaque biofilm related diseases and to develop educational skills necessary for the
dental hygienist during clinical patient care. The project will begin with identifying an
appropriate patient through the initiation of phase I (non-surgical) therapy, and
applying knowledge and techniques of patient education throughout a series of
appointments.

GOALS
To apply knowledge of oral diseases by identifying, assessing, planning,
providing, and evaluating dental hygiene care for a patient.

To develop clinical skills necessary to effectively manage patients with caries,
gingivitis, or periodontitis.

To apply knowledge and skills to provide appropriate educational information to
patients with oral diseases.

OBJECTIVES
1. Identify a patient with a plaque-related oral disease and with moderate plaque (at
   least 30-40%).
2. Conduct a thorough and accurate assessment of the patient including subjective
   and objective information.
3. Utilize diagnostic tools such as radiographs, indices, microbial studies, etc. and
   interpret the findings.
4. Analyze subjective and objective information by determining an appropriate dental
   hygiene diagnosis, contributing factors, treatment plan, treatment outcome, and
   prognosis.
5. Provide a sound rationale for the analysis.
6. Develop patient education strategies that include motivational factors to
   demonstrate appropriate oral self care.
7. Provide comprehensive care according to the (individualized) treatment.
8. Evaluate the treatment outcome(s) based on pre-determined criteria.
9. Document all procedures in clinic record(s).
10. Maintain patient confidentiality.
11. Develop a concise patient case narrative (one to two pages, double-spaced).
12. Self-assess the knowledge and skills acquired during the course of the project.
13. Integrate basic science concepts with clinical practice.
14. Accept responsibility for comprehensive patient care to the best of your ability.


                                                                                            11
REQUIREMENTS:
1. Identify a patient with moderate dental biofilm that demonstrates an associated
   disease such as caries, gingivitis, or periodontitis.
2. Accurately collect and analyze subjective and objective data; plan, implement and
   evaluate dental hygiene treatment. Attach copy of SOAP form to your report.
3. Utilize diagnostic tools such as microbial testing, indices, etc. Attach to report.
4. Submit a written report that describes your clinical experience with the patient.
   Include a discussion of your motivational strategies, all methods and techniques
   used for Home Care Instructions, recommendations for products, and your overall
   impression of the patient’s compliance. Include any notes for future improvement,
   or how you might approach a situation differently. 2-4 pages, double-spaced
   please!

                      Team Assignment 1 – Dental Product Inventory
                                  Presentations: 7/16

Objectives:
  1. Discuss the various oral health care products found in the local stores
  2. Develop an inventory list of oral health care products
  3. Describe the different types of dentifrices, mouthrinses, tooth brushes, floss, and other
      oral health care aids
  4. Refer patients to the store that has their needed oral health care aid(s) at the best price
  5. Present inventory findings using an oral presentation and handout in class, using a
      rubric assessment as a guide

Goals: The goals of this assignment are to become familiar with the array of choices
consumers must face when choosing an oral care product and feel confident that you can
refer your patient to a store that has the product(s) that you will be recommending in clinic.
Students will be divided into 3 teams and will be assigned a store in town to do a dental
product inventory.

This is not intended to be an actual inventory of every product but rather a generalized list,
which includes prices for major items. For example, how many types of mouthrinses did you
find? What are their purposes…fluoride, combat gingivitis, fight bad breath? What was the
cost of ACT rinse? What types of floss did you find? What are the costs of the electric (sonic)
brushes? What kinds of toothpaste did you find? How about floss?

Assignment: Each team will present their findings to the class, which will include a handout
of the team’s inventory findings. Presentations should be approximately 10 minutes in
length. The rubric on the following page will be used for assessment. You must turn the
rubric in to your instructor after your presentation. Make sure you have completed your
team evaluation.

2.     Summarize the purposes and indications, technique, and problems with the
      following toothbrushing methods: (If you prefer, you can do this in an ‘Outline’ and/or
      ‘Bullet’ format)
   a. Bass (Sucular)
   b. Roll or rolling stroke
   c. Modified Stillman
   d. Charters
   e. Power toothbrushes
3.    Describe the differences between natural bristles and man-made toothbrush filaments.
      (May want to do this in a table format, but not a requirement)

4. Must attach grading rubric to paper

Hints for Success:
1.     You have 3 weeks to complete this assignment.
2.     Complete assignment early and then study, memorize, and practice the brushing
       techniques on a model and in your own mouth. By practicing on a model, it will be
       easier to demonstrate to patients. Practicing in your own mouth will help you learn
       and remember the different techniques.
3.     The brushing techniques in this assignment are the common techniques you will be
       teaching your patients AND will need to know for your board exams.

Each team will be assigned a topic (listed below) from the continuing education section
found in the dentalcare.com Website. Your team will give a PowerPoint presentation to the
class on what you learned and how it relates to dental health education. Each team member
should be prepared to speak, and should give examples or explanations of topics introduced
on the PowerPoint slides rather than just reading from the screen.

A handout/study guide for your classmates is optional, but you must give an electronic copy
of your presentation to the instructor. Copies of your presentations will be made available
on the SharePoint site. (http://access.btc.ctc.edu/dentalhygiene)

Your team is required to use at least two other sources in addition to the dentalcare.com
website. This could be other Internet sources, journal articles, textbooks, or personal
experience. Following are the course titles:

      Preventions and Management of Oral Complications of Cancer Treatment: The Role of
       the Oral Health Team

      Counseling and Treating Bad Breath Patients

      Understanding Nicotine Addiction and Tobacco Intervention Techniques for Dental
       Professionals
