Northern ILAGD Presents: Advances in Dental Pharmacotheraphy

April 8, 2022 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Northern Illinois Academy of General Dentistry


Advances in Dental Pharmacotherapy

Rockford Radisson Hotel & Convention Center

Featuring: Professor Karen Baker, MS

Speaker Bio:

Course Information:

The range of drug therapy options available to dental practitioners has greatly expanded over the last ten years. This expansion has opened the door to unprecedented therapeutic successes as well as disastrous drug misadventures. This course will update the dental team on recent developments in dental 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 therapeutic agents commonly used in dentistry. Systemic antibiotics, anxiolytics, analgesics and mucosal disease agents will be evaluated and discussed. Specific attention will be given to certain controversial areas including antibiotic premedication of joint replacement patients and office management of dental anxiety. Potentially dangerous drug and supplement interactions important in clinical dentistry will be listed and reviewed, with emphasis on avoidance and patient management strategies. Extensive and very current handouts will be provided to maximize the chairside value of this fast-paced and entertaining course.

Course Objectives:
