Review of MD in DMD
The contemporary dentist is presented with medically challenged patients who function independently in society due to recent advances in medical management. Many patients with chronic conditions are managed on an outpatient basis with expected extended lifespans. As a result, the dentist will encounter patients with complex medical conditions that require a thorough understanding of disease processes and implications of dental therapeutic interventions including pharmacological modification.
This course will present an update and review of the more commonly seen medical conditions for dental practitioners. It will present useful and practical management guides for treatment of medically compromised patients, including a review of commonly prescribed medications and their implications to dental treatment.Objectives:
- Review common medical conditions and current therapeutic interventions.
- Relate medical conditions to their impact on delivery of dental services.
- Discuss patient evaluation in ascertaining relative risks in performing dental procedures.
- Establish guidelines and limitations in the delivery of dental services based upon medical conditions.
