Why is My Patient Having This Problem?
How to Recognize and Manage Drug-Related Conditions in the Dental Office

COURSE SYNOPSIS:
Dental patients are taking more drugs and using more oral chemicals than ever before. Just look at your medication history lists or the back of a toothpaste tube! Common drug-related conditions such as dry mouth, bad breath, canker sores, and yeast infections can be treated, or better yet, avoided. You will gain confidence in your ability to resolve many of your patients’ most frustrating and persistent oral complaints. Detailed and very current handouts will supplement the chairside value of this fast-paced and practical lecture.

COURSE OBJECTIVES:
After attending the lecture and reading the handout, the participant should be able to:

1. describe the most common drug or oral chemical causes of xerostomia, halitosis, taste disorders, canker sores, dentinal sensitivity and mucositis,

2. discuss the best strategies to treat or prevent dry mouth, halitosis, yeast infections and mucositis, and

3. list four chronic medications and four “alternative supplements” that interact with common dental drugs or affect dental procedures.
