For the everyday RDH

Why this course?

Most courses focus on "just" the staging and grading part of the AAP classification. In this course, you will learn a lot more than staging and grading. Lisa is a very dynamic speaker who will help you learn all parts of the AAP, I promised, it won't be boring.

And you will dive into things that other AAP courses skip! Those include implants, systemic diseases, and even gingival health.

Case studies are included, with every topic. You will use real scenarios and apply the AAP classification.

This course is comprehensive. That's why it is ON-DEMAND! Learn at your pace.
