          Course Objectives:

          Tongue piercing is a trendy form of body art that allows for self-expression, particularly among adolescents.  While many in this group see this procedure as harmless, many complications can arise.  Dental professionals need to be able to counsel those patients who are thinking about or who have already participated in this practice.


          Upon successful completion this of this course the participant will be able to:

          Discuss the method and types of tongue piercing
           
          List the potential complications that arise from the procedure
           
          Identify the role of the dental professional with regard to tongue piercing
           
          Offer alternative methods to prevent damage to the oral tissue
