COURSE OVERVIEW:

Within the expanding population of older people, more patients are experiencing health problems with the propensity for complications from dental treatment. Many of these medical problems or their treatment render the dental patient immunocompromised and therefore more susceptible to oral and systemic complications including infection, antimicrobial resistance, etc. Dentists and dental hygienists have a responsibility to ensure their patients’ health and safety. This course provides practical guidance that will assist clinicians in determining the severity and relative stability of common immunocompromised disorders so course participants will know how to proceed to provide the best possible care and avoid complications. Concise, clinically-focused information will detail the basic disease process for various immunocompromised conditions, along with incidence and prevalence, pathophysiology, signs and symptoms, laboratory findings, currently accepted medical therapies, and recommendations for specific dental management. Dr. Rhodus will provide practical tips to expedite easier detection and management of immunocompromised medical conditions. Ample time will be allotted for Q and A.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:

  • Describe the changing epidemiology of immunocompromising medical problems in dental patients
  • Review the medical manifestations and treatment options for immunocompromising medical problems in dental patients
  • Identify the oral manifestations and potential complications of immunocompromising medical problems in dental patients
  • Review the current dental management for patients with immunocompromising medical problems in dental practice
