Course: “Caries Risk Assessment: Good for Your Patients, Good for Your Practice”
Caries Management by Risk Assessment, or CAMBRA, represents a shift from simply treating caries to proactive prevention and treatment. Through learning about CAMBRA, and implementing the recommendations and protocols, dental clinicians have a valuable opportunity to help patients take charge of their oral health. Despite mounting clinical evidence demonstrating the usefulness and effectiveness of CAMBRA, the guidelines have yet to be adopted in many private practices. For dental clinicians, CAMBRA represents a valuable opportunity to increase patient education, acceptance to treatment, practice productivity and profitability.
