Description

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, herbal supplements and more. The simple approach to, “drilling and filling” has just been cranked up a few more notches. This program reviews pharmacology with a particular focus on the dental realm and how we can make it useful chairside on Monday morning. The academic principles of pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics and pharmacogenomics are simplified so that the most salient points are distilled into useful tenets that will help you be a better clinician and a better prescriber. After all, our goal is to make sure all dental appointments are not just successful for your patient, but also for you and your staff.

Objectives
