Drugs in Dentistry - Dental Prescribing, Pharmacology & Clinical Therapeutics

Event Details

The Dynamics and Dilemmas of Drugs in Dentistry

This program is targeted at linking all dental conditions and indications with appropriate and evidence-based prescribing protocols. Understanding the intricate use of drugs and their dental benefits sets the foundation of sound prescribing rationales within the dental scope.
We as dentists deal with a plethora of drugs. From the compact list we usually prescribe, to the extensive lists we are exposed to in our many patient medical history appraisals.
We are expected to know as much about the drugs we don’t prescribe as the one’s we do prescribe – their uses, modes of action, adverse reactions and various other interactions. Coupled with the ever-growing list of “generics” on the market, it is quite easy to become overwhelmed and confused.The overall aim of this program is to become well versed with the numerous drug classes and treatment modalities, to better increase our prescribing habits and expand our drug armamentarium.
Expanding your prescribing power and knowledge of drugs and disease, will result in enhanced patient management and superior patient outcome.The evidence-based approach of this program will expand your prescribing power and knowledge of drugs and disease, resulting in superior patient management.
