Course Objectives:

Compared with previous recommendations, there are currently very few patients who require antibiotic prophylaxis (AP) prior to dental procedures. The purpose of this course is to help dental professionals understand the current guidelines for AP prior to dental procedures. We will examine the growing concern for antibiotic resistance and the role dental professionals have in antibiotic stewardship. This course will also focus on the 2021 AHA Scientific Statement which reaffirms the 2007 recommendations that emphasizes good oral health and regular access to dental care as more important that AP for a dental procedure.
