Refresher Course

I will be taking a year off of work next year and am worried about feeling incompetent when I return. Specifically I worry about being unable to perform SRP and Local Anesthetic, as well as forgetting some dental vocabulary. Even now, I wish that I could improve my deep scaling skills so I worry a year without practice will be devastating to my abilities. I will continue to take CE courses during the year to keep my license. Do you know if there are any hands-on refresher courses for people in my situation? I live in Washington state. Thank you!

Interesting! I also may be taking off an extended period of time and live in Washington State. I do sometime see a hygiene tutor who is extremely helpful. I’m also concerned about losing the ability to perform SRP and LA.

I don’t know of any refresher courses, but you may want to look into hands-on instrumentation courses at dental conferences, at your local ADHA component courses, or local study clubs. Youtube has great videos demonstrating instrumentation as well.
