Course Description

Allergies: Increasing Population Incidence and Their Challenges to Health Care
Upon completion of this course, the participant should understand that virtually every chemical, drug and dental material employed in the dental office has been known to induce allergic reactions in both clinical personnel and patients. Clinicians should be prepared for potential challenges that an increasing percentage of allergic patients present during dental treatment. Comprehension of the classes of hypersensitive reactions, clinical manifestations, and principles associated with development and treatment of allergies are thus required for clinician understanding and effective managements. Discussion will also include immunological mechanisms and manifestations of allergic reactions associated with commonly used materials and latex products, as well as evolving prevention strategies.

  1. Current incidence
    1. Multiple allergies
    2. Potential allergens
  2. Type I hypersensitivity
    1. Representative allergens
    2. Clinical manifestations
  3. Type IV hypersensitivity
    1. Representative allergens
    2. Clinical manifestations
  4. Allergic reactions to latex

Vaccine Recommendations: Science, Success & Myths
This seminar will consider vaccination as an effective public health infection control approach for protection of both the general population and health care professionals. Emphasis will focus on the most recent updated information pertaining to vaccines used in the prevention of adult infectious disease, especially those with increased occupational health care risks. Discussion concerning recent public health vaccine recommendations, such as those targeting shingles and human papilloma viruses (HPV) will also be included. The rationale and classification of available vaccines and emerging technologies will be discussed in order to provide participants appropriate scientific and clinical evidence, which can be useful when considering the necessity for their own protection, as well as protection of the general public and individuals diagnosed with immune compromising conditions and diseases. In addition, important information will be presented concerning certain public misperceptions against vaccines, which have resulted in outbreaks of vaccine-preventable diseases and threaten vaccine global success against many infectious diseases.

  1. Public health impact
  2. Principles and vaccine types
  3. Representative vaccines
    1. Hepatitis B Virus (HBV)
    2. Influenza
    3. Bacterial pneumonia
    4. Pertussis
    5. Zoster (shingles)
    6. Human Papilloma Virus (HPV)
  4. Public Health Knowledge
    1. Herd immunity
    2. Mandated requirements
  5. Vaccination science vs. myths

Dr. Molinari's seminar will use a traditional Power Point lecture format that will include microbiological, research, and other evidence-based clinical information to demonstrate and reinforce concepts. The presentation will also encourage audience participation in the discussion of appropriate infection prevention strategies for clinical settings. Participants will have multiple opportunities to ask questions during the course of the seminar."
