Dental patients may present with complex medications they are taking for management of their acute and chronic illnesses. These medications may induce oral and systemic adverse effects, drug interactions and altered reactivity to drugs provided during dental care.
This course will provide an overview of the dental implications of medications, supplements and substances of abuse most frequently used by dental patients. It will provide practical tools dental professionals can apply every day to assist them in interpreting the information contained in a patient’s medication history and help the learner understand the impact on dental treatment planning and patient care.
