Join Sarah Laing for this state-of-the-art hands-on CPD training course for foundational skills in Guided Biofilm Therapy!

About this event


This workshop is the ideal platform for dental clinicians to discuss the most modern, comfortable and cost effective techniques available for periodontics, restorative dentistry, orthodontics, implant maintenance and special needs.

Participants will discover Guided Biofilm Therapy (GBT) and learn why it integrates with the modern concept of preventive and minimally invasive dentistry. You will have an opportunity to follow the complete Guided Biofilm Therapy protocol clinically first on dental models and then on each other in the clinic chair and learn to maximize efficiency and patient comfort.


  • Effectiveness of GBT compared to conventional methods for periodontics, restorative dentistry, orthodontics, implant maintenance and special needs
  • The 22 applications of AIRFLOW®, PERIOFLOW® and PIEZON®
  • How to best care for natural teeth and implants to maximise longevity and minimise risks for periodontitis and peri-implantitis
  • How to maximise the collaborative role between the dentist, hygienist/oral health therapist and the specialist
  • Correctly utilise supra and sub gingival air polishing devices to eliminate biofilm prior to hard deposit removal
  • Correctly apply ultrasonic instrumentation for optimal hard deposit removal
  • Get a live treatment! Learn GBT by performing GBT on each other in the clinic chair

By attending this course, you’ll make your job easier, faster, safer, and more effective. The course will show you what a health-centered, high-level practice looks like and how to become one too.
