The course also covers the Bloodborne Disease Pathogens Standard and the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention Infection Control Guidelines for Dentistry. Other topics include requirements in the areas of fire, noise, ventilation, egress, ionizing radiation and workplace violence. 

Friday, January 15, 2021

The Big Three:
Opioids, Alcohol and Marijuana and Their Impact on You, Your Family and Your Dental Practice 
Presented by: Dr. Harold Crossley 

This program will discuss the addictive nature, abuse, and medicinal aspects of opioids, alcohol, and marijuana. For centuries opioids have been used to control pain and suffering, but at what cost to us, our families, and our dental practices? Alcohol consumption and binge drinking continue to impact our families and our patients. Do you know how many people in the U.S. die daily from alcohol related crashes? Thirty-six states have legalized marijuana for medical use. Eleven states and the District of Columbia have legalized marijuana for recreational purposes. Inevitably, some of these marijuana users will be treated by the dentist or hygienist. Does it have any medicinal use?  Is marijuana addicting?

At the conclusion of this course, the attendees will know:
 - 
the difference between the synthetic and natural forms of “the big three”
 - the current use and abuse of alcohol today
 - alternatives to opioids for treating post-operative dental pain
 - the difference between the marijuana of today compared to 30 years ago
 - effects of these “big three” on organ systems 

Friday, January 15, 2021
1:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m. 

Avoid Liability: Know Your Patients’ Medications and Their Impact on Dental Treatment  
Presented By: Dr. Harold Crossley 

Your patients are living longer thanks to their medications but many of the physician-prescribed medications used by your patients have dental implications and side effects affecting your treatment plan.  Is antibiotic prophylaxis required for patients with an orthopedic prosthesis? What is the new FDA warning about codeine and tramadol in children? What is the most common side effect of medications? What oral antifungal medications may cause a heart attack in patients taking clopidogrel?

This presentation includes the indications, contraindications, and side effects of the most common physician- prescribed medications. Familiarity with these drugs will provide the dental practitioner with a better appreciation for the health profile of your dental patient.  

At the conclusion of this course, the attendees will know: 
 - prescription, OTC medications, and foods that could adversely interact with dental drugs
 - why your patient is taking their medications
 - the impact of these medications on dental treatment
 - how to combine analgesics to maximize their effects
 - current recommendations for SBE and orthopedic prosthesis prophylaxis
