BETTER MEDICINE, BETTER DENTISTRY Updates for the treatment of medically complex dental patients

We commonly see medically complex patients. Management of these patient includes not only understanding the chronic disease states but also the medications the patient is taking. And finally, how does all this information potentially change how, when, and where these complex dental patients should be treated? This interactive program looks at some of your most critical patients, common disease
states and their management. Case studies will augment the delivery of key points and a problem-based learning approach is encouraged so that each participant’s questions are addressed. Most importantly, you will learn at least five strategies to successfully treat medically-complex patients on Monday morning; after all, the goal is to make sure all dental appointments are not just successful for your patient, but also for you and your staff.


– Understand the four main challenges of assessing medically complex dental patients.
– Discuss the concept of procedural risk and how to select and de-select appropriate patients.
– Describe the four main risk factors to consider when treating medically complex patients
– Review common disease states and/or conditions such as diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, antibiotic prophylaxis, bleeding disorders, and more
– Learn how to plan and implement a strategy for safe and effective dental treatment of patients with complex medical histories


MEDICAL EMERGENCIES IN THE DENTAL OFFICE: What ‘s in Your Emergency Kit and Why?

Preparing the Entire Dental Team to Manage Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office Medical emergencies are defined as any condition that if left untreated may lead to patient morbidity or mortality. However, if your definition of an emergency is any condition of a patient that raises your blood pressure or pulse rate – then you need to take this course! Medical emergencies happen. Studies estimate that on average a practitioner will be faced with a medical emergency in the dental office twice every year! Some of these occurrences can be minor; some of these situations can be life-threatening. The good
news for practitioners is that 75% of emergencies can be mitigated by good local anesthesia (pain control) and effective stress reduction. For those few instances when an appropriate response could be lifesaving, each practitioner must be prepared with a properly equipped emergency drug kit. The purpose of the course is to emphasize patient safety and educate you on the seven essential drugs you should have in the medical emergency kit. Even though the right answer always includes dialing 9-1-1, you can start the chain of survival in your office!
