Description

Diabetes is a complex, chronic illness that requires ongoing medical care with strategic risk reduction strategies beyond glycemic control. Patients require selfmanagement education and support to prevent acute complications and reduce the risk of longterm complications. A range of evidencebased interventions are available to improve diabetes outcomes. 1 Recognized as a major global public health problem and the seventh leading cause of death in the U.S., proper management of diabetes will positively impact a patients oral health, especially as it relates to risk for periodontal disease. Determining whether or not medical issues warrant immediate care before elective dental procedures is an important part of patient protocol and needs to be instituted by dental practitioners. Better overall communication and ongoing interaction between medical and oral healthcare providers is needed to improve the overall health of individuals with diabetes. When you complete a continuing education course on dentalcare.com, a form will come up that requests your name, address, etc. If you are a member of the AGD, make sure to fill out the field that asks for your AGD membership number if you are not an AGD member, leave blank. When you hit submit, a copy of the proof of completion is emailed directly to the AGD and PG. For your records, make sure to print a copy of the proof of completion certificate. Disclaimer: Participants must always be aware of the hazards of using limited knowledge in integrating new techniques or procedures into their practice. Only sound evidencebased dentistry should be used in patient therapy.
