Description:

The course is designed to provide the dentist with a survey of common medical conditions that may be encountered in a dental practice. For each condition, the instructor will provide a brief overview of the basic disease process, etiology, incidence, prevalence, medications and oral manifestations commonly presented by dental patients. In particular, patients with neurological disorders, cardiovascular disease or endocrine conditions, as well as patients who are pregnant or lactating will be discussed so the practitioner can provide appropriate and safe dental care.
