What We Do

Periodontal Education Through Video Lessons

In 2011, the focus of the Pattison Institute expanded to video education through video lessons for dental students, dental hygiene students and practitioners.

We believe that watching video demonstrations, while practicing instrumentation on a periodontal typodont, is the most effective method for teaching periodontal instrumentation. 

Combined with live patient experiences, the use of these detailed videos provide an invaluable educational experience that is rarely available.

Pattison Institute offers:

  • Video lessons which include close-ups of grasps, positions, fulcrums, adaptation, angulation and strokes with numerous assessment and scaling instruments

  • Live lecture courses

  • Hands-on instrumentation workshops

  • Faculty in-service workshops

  • Private in-office seminars or workshops

  • Private individualized assessment and instruction
