Course Description: Tuesday May 12, 2020

The  challenge  faced  by  all  clinicians  today  is  to provide  safe  and  effective  dental  treatment  to  our medically  complex  patients.  However,  dental professionals  find  themselves  practicing  in  a marketplace  awash  in  direct  to  consumer advertising of prescription drugs and in the midst of an  explosion  of  new  drug  entities  over  the  last several years. Thus, many dental professionals may find it challenging to stay up to date with the latest prescribing trends in disease state management.

This  program  will  provide  an  overview  of  those frequently  prescribed  brand  name  medications whose  actions,  side  effects,  contraindications  and potential  drug  interactions  may  have  the  greatest impact on dental therapy.

Learning Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be able to:
  • Identify the  most  frequently  prescribed  FDA- approved  brand  name  medications  for  the treatment of systemic illnesses.
  • Discuss  the  basic  mechanisms  of  action, potential  adverse  reactions,  drug  interactions and contraindications of these medications.
  • Explain  the  clinical  dental  considerations  of these  medications  and  their  potential  impact on dental therapy.
  • Describe  patient  management  strategies essential for successful treatment planning and proper  care  of  our  medically  complex  dental patients
