Description

Providing dental care to medically-complex patients continues to be a major challenge facing dentists. Despite advances in management techniques and treatment delivery, patients’ preexisting conditions and experiences contribute to difficult dental cases which often require antibiotic prophylaxis or in the case of acute infections, appropriate treatment. Your challenge of matching the right drug to the right bug at the right time and at the right dose for the right patient and the right procedure will be described to a depth that makes this program clinically useful. So what do you really need to know about all of those new antibiotics you keep hearing about? Are they really the latest and greatest? Are there really new guidelines when it comes to antibiotic prophylaxis? This program reviews the basics of antibiotic pharmacology with a particular focus on the dental realm. The goal of making dental pharmacology useful at chair side beginning on Monday morning will be emphasized. The principles of infectious diseases management are simplified so that the most salient points are distilled into useful tenants that will help you make the best prescription choice for your patients under all circumstances.
