Course Description

It’s (Medically) Complicated!: Essential Pharmacology for Treating Medically Complex Dental Patients

Dental professionals must frequently draw upon their knowledge of pharmacology for optimal care of today’s medically complex dental patients. However, pharmacology often represents only a small portion of most dental degree programs. Armed with a relatively brief exposure to this vast subject, many dental professionals simply cannot keep up with the latest trends in disease state management.

This comprehensive live webinar explores the dental implications of the prescription medications, non-prescription medications, herbal products, nutritional supplements and substances of abuse most frequently used by patients. Participants receive this essential information in a format which is not only practical and applicable but also highly entertaining for the entire dental team.
