Greater Loudoun Hygiene Study Club

A professional Study Club for Dental Hygienists, affiliate of Seattle Study Club

Now in our 3rd year, with membership growing by leaps and bounds, the Hygiene Study Club looks forward to a truly amazing year packed with many different topics and unique experiences. Our 2012-2013 calendar is expanded to include 6 programs, 2 of which will be in conjunction with Greater Loudoun Study Club. Our year kicks off in October with the latest updates on diagnosis and treatment of Sleep Apnea, presented by Dr. Robert Gallegos and Dr. Jay Vandervort. Early in November the hygienists will learn techniques and resources for the management of TMJ from Dr. Walter Collazo. On November 30 the GLHSC is invited to join GLSC for an all day presentation on Dental Pharmacotherapy and Impact of Alternative Medicine by nationally recognized expert Karen Baker. January has VCU’s esteemed Professor of Oral Pathology and storyteller extraordinaire, Dr. John Svirsky bringing us up to date on Oral Pathology. In March we will head out to the new Purcellville office of Dr. Tom Grisius for training in Orthodontic appliance care. And our year wraps up in April with a lecture and hands-on presentation entitled “Mastering the Piezoelectric Ultrasonic Scaling Device” brought to us by Brasseler USA.

Looking forward to a great meeting Tuesday Oct. 16th. Dr. Jones will be reviewing Oral Pathology and talking about the dangers of vaping, its impact on oral health, and the signs and symptoms dental hygienists must know.

GLHSC presents:
Lisa Marvil, D.M.D. - Today in Periodontology

Lecture Synopsis:

This course will introduce participants to the most current topics and avenues of research in periodontology, including tissue engineering, laser therapy, and diagnosis and treatment of peri-implantitis.

Learning Objectives:

· Learn about the role of lasers in periodontal treatment

About our Speaker:

Lisa A. Marvil D.M.D., M.H.S.

Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology
Fellow of The International Congress of Oral Implantologists

Dr. Lisa Marvil grew up in Loudoun County, had her first pony by the time she was three, was a member of the Loudoun Hunt Pony Club and attended Lovettsville Elementary, Blueridge Middle School and finally Loudoun Valley High School. It has always been her goal to return to Loudoun County where she has such fond childhood memories and raise a family of her own.

She graduated from Bryn Mawr College with a degree in English Literature and completed a Masters in teaching at Duke University. After the experience of teaching both abroad and in the US, Lisa decided she might be interested in pursuing something else. She called her family dentist in Leesburg and asked if she could come and help out, and from that moment on she was hooked. She left her small horse farm in Lovettsville, and Lisa attended dental school at Harvard University.

After graduating from Harvard where she was the recipient of the Quintessence Award for Excellence in Clinical Periodontology, she received a Masters degree in Health Sciences and her Certificate in Periodontology from the Medical University of South Carolina where she was chief resident in her final year. Her research interests include laboratory research in mucositis secondary to anti-neoplastic treatment and clinical evaluation of long-term implant survival rates. Dr. Marvil is a diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Found on Google from
