Continuing Education

The Ward Periodontics Team is passionate about staying current on the latest dental topics and research, promoting new ideas, and putting forward-thinking, evidence-based practices in motion. We also love working with other dental teams to provide outstanding care to our mutual patients. We believe that collaborative care between dental professionals truly provides patients with the highest level of care achievable. Dr. Ward had a vision for a meeting of dental professionals emphasizing our commitment to collaborative care, and promoting the spirit of life-long learning among members of our local community. As a result, the Ward Perio Hygiene Collaborative was born.

Our continuing education group is open to all dental team members. We promote collaborative learning and we hope to foster relationships between dental professionals in our community through this process. We strive for an open environment of professional respect where questions and feedback are welcomed and encouraged. Our goal is to provide ongoing, high quality dental continuing education close to home regarding current and relevant topics.
