Fact Sheets for Dental Professionals
Informational “fact sheets” have been developed to facilitate providing dental treatment to children and adults who have developmental or acquired conditions which can impact the delivery of dental care. These fact sheets provide an overview of general clinical and oral findings for different conditions, drugs commonly used by these individuals and the impact the drugs may have on oral health. Information provided can improve clinical outcomes and increase professional knowledge and comfort. Learners will review 32 Dental Professional fact sheets that represent 17 different conditions with adult and child versions included for most conditions. Three CDE credits are available upon completion of the course quiz and a score of 80% or higher.
