Red Flags in General Dental Practice
Presented by Associate Professor Mark Schifter

This Western Division meeting will discuss the six ‘red flags’ all dental practitioners need to be aware of when practising. Certain patients can be a “red flag” specifically their medical status or their particular presenting problem and it requires all of your attention to ensure you provide safe dental care or recognise and act promptly with regards to their presenting condition. This course will consider what to look for and how to effectively handle each unique case.

Topics covered throughout the day include:
• Red Flag One: Patient Evaluation and Assessment
A review of the when, why, and how of the patient’s medical history and considerations in treatment planning for the aged, frail and medically-complex patient. 

• Red Flag Two:  No treatment without a diagnosis
Considerations in the evaluation and diagnosis of the patient with oro-facial pain.

• Red Flag Three:  Antibiotics – Use and Abuse
Pharmacology, indications, contraindications, antibiotic and surgical prophylaxis and antimicrobial stewardship. 

• Red Flag Four: Hold the Forceps! 
Relative and absolute contraindications to extractions 

• Red Flag Five:  The Patient with Cancer
Oral/dental complications, manifestations and considerations of the patient with cancer and its treatment with  radiotherapy, chemotherapy &/or anti-resorptive agents. 

• Red Flag Six.  Oral Cancer and Potentially Malignant Oral Disorders
A primer for the general dental practitioner.
