Is there any correlation between hygienists that reported positive Covid 19 and utilization of cavitron?
Ashley Grady
42:48
Hi there, can you please ask this question in the Q&A box? thanks!
Kimberly Harlan
51:34
is there guidelines from osha for the employer that must be done whether required or recommended?
Ashley Grady
51:53
Hi there - can you please write your question in the Q&A box? thanks!
Kimberly Harlan
52:11
oops I thought I was...lol
Camille Somma
52:38
if I didn’t have to work I would consider stopping as well , disappointed Cdc didn’t mandate air filtration since we produce the aerosols that’s can travel and infect others in the office .
Michelle Landrum
53:40
I would love for ADHA to survey hygienists to find out how many have or are planning to get the vaccine. Are there any plans for this?
Ashley Grady
54:09
Hi there, can you please ask this question in the Q&A box?
christine patel
57:33
There are published studies on daily N95 mask usage in HCW,
Janna Gardner
58:47
is there a suggested time period to wait to do prophy or SRP after a patient tests positive for COVID? Do they just need to wait the 14 day quarantine? what if they still have symptoms?
Ashley Grady
59:03
Hi there - can you please write this question in the Q&A box?
Camille Somma
01:00:23
if we can’t use cavitron or limit what is the protocol for dentists who always use the high speed
Toni Meyerkord
01:01:15
So even with HVE, hygienists are not allowed to use it although dentists use high speed hand pieces with HVE ? why is this different? With or without an assistant, isn’t it unsafe to use hand pieces?
Dawn Dean
01:01:25
Thank you, ADHA & ADA, for this fabulous, groundbreaking research and partnership!
Ashley Grady
01:01:28
Hi there, can you please write this question in the Q&A box?
Robbie Johnson
01:02:05
how should I treat my periodontal patients without cavitron type 4 period with heavy subg calculus offices are still using cavitron what's your advice for tx of these patients without perio
Ashley Grady
01:02:22
Hi there - can you please write your question in the Q&A box?
Mary J Ranallo
01:02:40
Thanks so much for presenting this webinar :)
Holly Rode
01:02:45
Toni u hav3 to ask under the q&a tab to get answered by the panel I believe
Loraine C
01:02:50
is it legal for a patient to question me if I had my vaccination or why I did not have it yet?
Dawn Piper
01:02:53
We need to address the belief systems of our colleagues. It is alarming that educated licensed healthcare professionals thought the virus was fake and are antivaxxers
Teri Jackson
01:03:06
MANY hygienists are using cavitron and polishing daily. Some use limited HVE while others use higher and more effective HVE. Seems like the statistics aren’t supporting no polishing or cavitron despite the type of evacuation
Kristy Menage Bernie, RDH, MS, RYT
01:03:21
YES - Thank you ADA for the resources and hard work. As a condition of employment…well vaccine may be required…
Wendy Tryon
01:03:22
I would think that we need to wait to find out all side affects before mandating people.
Samantha Moore
01:03:23
we aren’t required to get the flu vaccine or hep B, covid shouldn’t be mandated...it’s no different
Jahmaica Beebout
01:03:48
The lack of evidence based research on the vaccine makes a lot of us skeptical about getting the vaccine.
Lori Crawford
01:03:53
Toni I asked if we could use cavitron or air polishers with HVE.
Toni Meyerkord
01:04:09
Oops, thanks all. It’s moved over
Wendy Tryon
01:04:12
A vaccine is when you can not get the sickness again and you cannot spread it.
Wendy Tryon
01:04:32
If that were the case then I could understand mandating it.
Natalya Trotter
01:04:38
agree with Wendy
Dawn Piper
01:04:48
interesting screening of questions
Faye Rosengard
01:04:58
Thank you for the update!
Vicky Vaughn
01:05:05
we can get Covid after being vaccinated?? then what would be the point?
Jennifer Hasch
01:06:10
Kentucky is one :) Glad to hear that 13 states are allowing hygienists to be a part of the distribution plan
Samantha Moore
01:06:22
no one knows anything about this experimental vaccine yet it shouldn’t be mandated
Wendy Tryon
01:06:35
I know people that got the vaccine and then decided to go on vacation to Florida.
Sylvia Romosz
01:06:48
CDC said you don’t need to quarantine if you received your second vaccine. if coming direct contact
christine patel
01:07:11
We don't want them in Florida...lol!
Vicky Vaughn
01:07:22
obviously will continue to use proper protocol and PPE but I don’t understand how we can get it after vaccination??
Michele Zmrazek
01:07:49
what are you saying by about going on vacation?
Denise Koch
01:07:59
Does anyone know of any hygienists that have taken the training required to volunteer to administer vaccines ?
Dee Sho
01:08:02
The Emergency Use Authorization stipulates that the vaccine CANNOT be mandated.
Michele Zmrazek
01:08:39
informed consent is important.
Kristy Menage Bernie, RDH, MS, RYT
01:09:26
So interesting…we need California back in the ADHA House of Delegates!
Dawn Dean
01:10:03
WV is working together toward this goal. We have a fantastic, WV COVID-19 Taskforce with dentists and dental Hygienists working with state government representatives.
Gail Gilman
01:10:05
I agree with you, Kristy!
Kristy Menage Bernie, RDH, MS, RYT
01:10:41
@Gail…we pay our dues…our voice should count! :) It appears it does in this research!
Mary Kelly
01:10:58
good point Kristy
Jennifer Hasch
01:11:05
We are stronger together!
Jeannette Diaz
01:11:17
As an ADHA paying member, I agree @Kristy and @Gail
Gail Gilman
01:11:21
I asked my board to participate in the survey and post it too.
Heike Ewert
01:11:26
Thank you so much for your time and efforts here and sharing the information,
Teri Jackson
01:11:33
exactly! my previous office would have fired me for telling the truth
Deanza Mims
01:11:39
CE credit for this webinar?
Michelle Landrum
01:11:51
Most infectious disease experts still caution that you can even if you are vaccinated, you can still shed the virus to others. It is very important that people understand this. The vaccine will prevent (95% of the time) folks from getting sick from the virus, but it doesn't mean you are not a carrier of the virus.
Dawn Dean
01:11:57
Yes, Kristy! #StrongerTogether 👏
Gail Gilman
01:12:07
That would be San Diego County and I’m president of SDCDHS. Glad to do it, hope it helped.

Ashley Grady
01:12:32
hi there - no CE, just informational only for this webinar!
Gail Gilman
01:12:37
Yes Dawn Dean of CA too!

Thank you for posting, Kathy! You ROCK!
Deanza Mims
01:13:21
Ok thank you
Britta Brossard
01:13:31
did I hear it correctly that we are no longer in the optimization of PPE stage of the pandemic and therefore should not reuse n95s?
Jean Sica
01:13:58
CE credits are fine but staying connected and informed is most important Awesome as others have said - to see ADHA and ADA have this partnership. Thank you.
Gail Gilman
01:14:07
Will this recording be available to us?
Eileen Curosh
01:14:09
#StrongerTogether !
Ashley Grady
01:14:20
yes! you will receive an email tomorrow of the recording of this full webinar
Regina Hicks
01:14:24
CA just gave the okay for hygienists to give vaccinations after a 4-5 hour training. This is the same training nurses and all others have to go through. Thank You, CDHA for your support!!!!
Tracy Knapp
01:14:54
Texas hasn’t even put dental professionals in the tier for vaccinations! They dont consider us health care professionals
Gail Gilman
01:15:05
How many States can have RDHs/RDHAPs vaccinators; administers of the vaccine?
Lori Crawford
01:15:26
@Gail I think 13 states

Stephanie Baker
01:16:49
I’m happy to say my office has maintained our high level of care even during this pandemic. we utilize ultrasonic scalers along with hands along. We use high volume suction and an extra oral evacuation unit.
Stephanie Baker
01:17:17
sorry hand scaling
Kristy Menage Bernie, RDH, MS, RYT
01:17:36
Right now we are back to landlines vs. iPhone12…they both work…
Denise Kreitman
01:17:54
We have had many patients tell us they will not be back until the ultrasonic is used.
Vicky Vaughn
01:18:12
thank you!! I’ve been hygienist for 28 years... it is not standard of care!
Bracken Killpack
01:18:44
JoAnn Gurenlian: can you provide links to those analyses? Thanks
Marcelo Araujo
01:18:46
Our 2015 clinical practice guidelines show that manual SRP is the most effective method. Jo is correct.
Gail Gilman
01:18:59
Thank you, Jeanette! That was fast…so I see not all States.
Tonette Steeb
01:19:12
Do you have a link tom that research?
Mary Kelly
01:19:13
evidence-based decision making!!
Vicky Vaughn
01:19:27
thorough hand scaling and instrumentation is! cavitron is great for lowering bacteria in sulcus but... hand scaling is huge!!
Ebony Gant
01:19:45
So true I learned that in hygiene school!
Liz Kaylor
01:19:51
Thank you for a very well-articulated rationale, JoAnn!
Linda Miller
01:19:51
Amazing research! Can we get a link to the hand instrumentation vs ultrasonics?
Kathryn Falcone
01:19:54
Again well said JoAnn! Thank you!
Marcelo Araujo
01:20:43
To support JoAnn's answer on SRP, please see Smiley at al, 2015.

Peggy Lelesi
01:20:48
JoAnn, I like your soapbox!
E Jane Crocker
01:21:01
Thank you for sharing all of this information!
Jean Sica
01:21:07
JoAnn - thank you Well said Good explanation
Linda Miller
01:21:18
Thank you so much!
Kristy Menage Bernie, RDH, MS, RYT
01:21:32
LOL! Like use of high speed drills?! Guess that’s OK! HA! It’s the lack of consistency that becomes frustrating. Can we manage aerosols from power scalers? If we use them correctly, there should be no more aerosol than a high speed drill…IMHO
Colleen McKeon
01:21:36
Yay, Joanne! How did we treat patients before ultrasonics and get results? DUH Hugs!!
Toni Meyerkord
01:22:14
👍🏾
Vicky Vaughn
01:22:16
I agree Kristy
Jaclyn Gleber, PhD, PHDHP
01:22:18
Excellent call to evidence JoAnn - thank you
Denise Kreitman
01:22:23
Agree Kristy
charlene jackson-collins
01:22:26
Thank you all! Stay safe
Tomika Johnson-Flowers
01:22:31
How were the questions determined for this survey? Did you survey RDHs?
Michelle Tull
01:22:38
Agree as well Kristy
Heather Steich
01:22:50
Thanks! Yes, by "overlap" I was asking about the aggregating/merging of the data together or being separate. I realize that I could have been more clear. =D
Van Santiago
01:22:54
thank you for providing the research on SRP, 2015!
Olesya AKSENOV
01:22:58
what about our hands?? HVE is sufficient for aerosol control!
Heike Ewert
01:23:03
what practice is that??
Tomika Johnson-Flowers
01:23:28
Seems like a lot of the questions RDHs on this meeting are concerned about were not asked
Heike Ewert
01:23:32
Get fired too..
Diana Cokas
01:23:40
well said!
Gail Gilman
01:23:42
Well done, everyone!
Jen Kopp
01:23:48
"Any who RDH who has watched milky subgingival crevicular fluid flush out with a cavitron tip knows a gracey ain't gonna cut it sis," Jennifer Hasch.
Kristy Menage Bernie, RDH, MS, RYT
01:23:49
Keep talking with ADA, ADHA! It’s long overdue!
Eileen Curosh
01:23:50
thank you
Ebony Gant
01:23:51
However when high speed drills are used most of the time a dental assistant can control the aerosols unlike when a hygienist is working!
Cynthia Gadbury-Amyot
01:23:55

01:23:55
