Case Study Perio Chart

These in-depth case studies have been designed specifically for dental hygiene students. Each case includes the patient documentation (Patient History and Periodontal Charting) and images (Radiographs and Intraoral images). These case studies may be used in a number of ways, such as:

• Individual study followed by in class testing.
• Group study followed by classroom presentation.
• Classroom review and discussion.

Above all, our hope is that these cases will provide you with insights into the complex issues involved in patient care.

ATTENTION! will be under construction May 19th - 23rd. During this time period, you will not be able to log into the website to access the Case Studies, create, edit or complete case study assignments, or view your previous case study results in Your Courses and Activities.
