Conference Brochure

Sex, Drugs & Alcohol - The 21st Century Dental Therapist is organized by Seventh District Dental Society and will be held on Nov 15, 2019 at RIT Inn & Conference Center, Henrietta, New York, United States of America.

The role of the dental clinician has changed significantly in the last 100 years. From dental technician to dental therapist, the face of our daily interactions with patients has taken on new challenges and created new responsibilities.

Every day we are faced with difficult conversations that go far beyond the dental health of our patients. We have always faced the challenges of discussing issues like smoking and chewing tobacco with our patients. However, these are no longer the only addictions we need to be prepared to deal with in our practice. We need to be ready to address the effects of alcohol and drug abuse as well. The increase in oral cancer related to the human papillomavirus (HPV) has forced us to look at the way we address oral sex as one of the new risk factors of oral cancer. We also fight the impact of today’s society in the increased incidence of bulimia, which was traditionally prevalent in women but is now also occurring more frequently in our male patients. To add to these complex conversations – these challenges are being seen in our teen and young adult patients as well as adults.

This course takes an interactive approach to dealing with these complex conversations. We will uncover relevant statistics and valuable information to use as a foundation to bring into the workshop. Participants will then work together to discuss the best ways to start a dialogue with our patients on these challenging topics.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
• Recognize situations and opportunities to help patients with complex problems that affect dental health.
• Understand dental complications that are associated with smoking, drugs, marijuana, alcohol, oral sex, bulimia and other socially influenced patient issues.
• Provide valuable information to patients on complex topics through effective communication.

Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
