Nutrition masterclass for hygienists

Fresh back from presenting two nutrition reports at Europerio 7 in Vienna, Juliette Reeves of Perio-Nutrition is presenting a full day Master Class for Dental Hygienists on Saturday 20 October  2012 at Barnsdale Lodge in Rutland, Leicestershire.

The focus of this study day is an introduction to clinical nutrition for the dental team to enable the introduction of nutritional management of periodontal disease into everyday practice.

The course will cover some basic nutrition principals before going on to look at the nutritional biochemistry relevant to chronic inflammation and the periodontal tissues. Finally the practical application of the information studied will be demonstrated and participants will have the opportunity to experience a case history for themselves.

This workshop includes some of the latest research from EP7 and will cover dietary habits that affect chronic inflammation.

• Carbohydrate and protein intake relative to oral health and chronic inflammation.

• Essential Fatty Acids and inflammatory bone loss.

• The resolution of chronic inflammation.

• Marginal deficiency and physical observation techniques.

• The practical application of clinical nutrition is highlighted with particular relevance to oral health.

This workshop takes place in the beautiful surroundings of the Rutland countryside. Close to Rutland Water and the historic Georgian towns of Stamford, Oakham and Melton Mowbray, the area is renowned for it’s natural beauty and important wildlife habitats. Preferential accommodation rates are offered to delegates quoting Perio-Nutrition on booking.

The cost of £95 includes morning coffee, two course lunch and afternoon tea, plus all handouts and materials required. Places are limited to ensure individual attention. Visit for more information and to book your place online.
