Welcome to this four-part virtual lecture series in March designed to illustrate how uniting the medical, dental, and pharmaceutical fields ultimately leads to “Better Medicine, Better Dentistry -The Art and Science of Dental Therapeutics"
Providing dental care to anxious, fearful and medically-complex patients continues to be a major challenge facing dentists. Despite advances in management techniques and treatment delivery, patients' preexisting opinions and experiences contribute to dental anxiety, fear and avoidance. Feelings of apprehension create psychological obstacles that prevent dental patients from seeking and receiving care and once they do, the dentist is then faced with treating their oral health needs in the face of multiple chronic diseases, medications and herbal supplements. The simple approach to, “drilling and filling” has just been cranked up a few more notches.
This interactive program will address a number of these concerns with a particular focus on the dental realm. 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 implementable strategies to successfully treat medically complex patients, our goal is to make sure all dental appointments are not just successful for your patient, but also for you and your staff.
