Medicine is becoming an exponentially more complex practice, and our dental patients are presenting with ever-increasingly complex histories. In order to make the best dental decisions for our patients, we need to understand the intimate details of their overall status.
Each organ system listed below will be reviewed in great detail over this 6-day series, in this format:
- Normal anatomy and physiology, to understand how the systems work in health
- Common pathophysiologies encountered, and a discussion of why things go wrong
- Medical diagnostics and therapeutics commonly employed and why
- Pharmacology of drugs used (presented in a way that actually may make sense!)
- Detailed discussion of how dental care may need to be modified
This course is intended to be taken as a complete series. Ideally, attendees will participate in all 6 sessions for a seamless experience. While we will welcome participation on select days, please understand that the exact timing of the individual topics may vary from this tentative schedule depending on how the course progresses.
