A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Oct 22, 2021

This week on A Tale of Two Hygienists TIPisode we are joined by Steve Pardue from Elevate Oral Care to talk about antiseptic and antimicrobial agents in dentistry highlighting Povidone-iodine and its properties that fight decay. 

Episode Highlights

  • Antiseptic Agents
  • Povidone-iodine
  • Povi•OneTM  



“Hygienists are in the unique position to prevent decay rather than repair it after the damage is already done.” 


“Hygienists spend the most time with patients in the dental office, this is valuable time where you can offer guidance for patients to manage their own oral care.” 


“These agents are broad spectrum and also kill the good bacteria.” 


“Povidone-iodine reduces glucan production significantly which in turn reduces the ability to create polysaccharides and therefore makes plaque less sticky.”
