Central Illinois AGD Presents: Pharmacology and Oral Medicine/Pathology For Those Patients With Special Needs – Dr. Karen Baker & Dr. John Olson

March 24, 2017 @ 8:00 am - March 25, 2017 @ 5:00 pm


Pharmacology and Oral Medicine/Pathology For Those Patients With Special Needs

by Drs. Karen Baker & Dr. John Olsen


The range of drug therapy options available to pediatric dentists has greatly expanded over the past ten years. This expansion has opened the door to unprecedented therapeutic successes as well as serious drug misadventures. This lecture will update the clinician on recent developments in pediatric pharmacotherapy while providing strategies for prescribing to ensure therapeutic success. Drug therapy and alternative medicine reference sources will be listed and critiqued as to usefulness in daily practice. Clinically relevant information about effectiveness, adverse effects, patient specific drug selection criteria, dosing, and cost will be presented for systemic antibiotics, analgesics and anxiolytics commonly used in pediatric dentistry. Special attention will be given to certain controversial areas including dental treatment considerations for medicated children and regimens of choice for oral mucositis. Extensive and very current handouts will be provided to maximize the chair-side value of this fast-paced and clinically relevant lecture.
