SEMINAR INFORMATION / registration 

AM Seminar Topic: Premedication Guidelines for Dental Professionals

Course description: Compared with previous recommendations, there are currently very few patients who require antibiotic prophylaxis (AP) prior to dental procedures. The purpose of this course is to help dental professionals understand the current guidelines for AP prior to dental procedures. We will examine the growing concern for antibiotic resistance and the role dental professionals have in antibiotic stewardship. This course will also focus on the 2021 AHA Scientific Statement which reaffirms the 2007 recommendations that emphasizes good oral health and regular access to dental care as more important that AP for a dental procedure.

Learning Objectives

1. Define the etiology of bacteremia and identify the incidence of bacteremia reported for daily activities vs. a dental cleaning. 2. Review the history of

2. antibiotic prophylaxis.

3. Understand the current AHA, ADA and AAOS guidelines for antibiotic prophylaxis prior to dental procedures.

4. Examine the role of dental professionals toward antibiotic stewardship.

5. Recognize that maintenance of good oral health and regular access to dental care is more important than AP for a dental procedure

PM Seminar Topic: That’s Not What I Learned In School 2.0

Course description: Did you learn that floss is the magic elixir preventing everything from caries to bone loss? Or perhaps you are still providing

‘routine care’ that includes yearly radiographs and fluoride treatments. While education provides the foundation, it depreciates over time as new

research, therapies, and treatments emerge. This course will empower you to move out of your comfort zone and feel confident adopting new evidence-based strategies for everyday patient care

Learning objectives

1. Discuss the role of evidence in making treatment decisions

2. Explain the importance of staging and grading in classifying periodontitis

3. Examine how risk plays a role in determining appropriate intervals for recare appointments, radiographs, and fluoride treatments

4. Understand the importance of antibiotic stewardship

5. Identify the best strategies for caries management

6. Recognize the limitation of dental floss
