When patients continue to have cavities, it can be highly discouraging despite improvements in their oral health. This can lead to the disruption of their oral health philosophy and create the belief that "cavities are normal for me" or even "I just have soft teeth."  We have the unique opportunity to identify a patient's specific risk and provide treatment recommendations accordingly. • Review how the pH of the mouth influences calculus formation and periodontal disease • Discover powerful communication skills to increase the patient's ownership of their current oral health • Evaluate pH testing for your office and how to implement it into a patient's preventive visits
