Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office: High Fidelity Interactive Simulation Exercises and Debriefing Discussions for the Dental Team 2019
Nov 01, 2019 | CEUs 5.50 | USD $899 | Gainesville, Florida
Medical Emergencies in the Dental Office: High Fidelity Interactive Simulation Exercises and Debriefing Discussions for the Dental Team is organized by University of Florida (UF) and will be held on Nov 01, 2019 at Harrell Medical Education Building, Gainesville, Florida, United States of America. The target audience for this medical event is Dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, office staff Continuing Education Units 5.5 CEUs (Participation) and 4 CEUs (Online) Course Description As medical science advances, it is expected that dentists will encounter an increase in the number of medically complex patients seeking routine dental care. Dentists are frequently challenged by the medically compromised patients who present for treatment. Not only is it difficult to keep up with the medical knowledge necessary to understand the status of your patients, it is sometimes difficult to decide which medical issues are important to your dental care, and which issues should alert you to the possibility of a medical emergency occurring. Moreover, the active treatment of a medical emergency in the office setting can be intimidating and confusing not only to dentists, but to any health care practitioner. Preparation, via reading and lectures is helpful but is no substitute for real experience in a lifelike situation. For this reason, we have developed an emergency preparedness course with high fidelity simulations so that dentists and their staffs can practice simulated emergency care in a real clinical environment. Utilizing the University of Florida Medical Education Simulation Center, dentists and their staff members will participate in a number of emergency scenarios, followed by discussion of the various principles involved in identifying and responding to medical emergencies that may be encountered in dental offices. We will also discuss emergency preparedness, and suggest practical ways you and your office staff can remain in a constant state of readiness. Since team function is an important aspect of emergency care, this presentation is designed to be taken by the entire dental team. In this presentation you will: • Participate along with your staff and other attendees in hands-on simulations of a variety of medical emergencies for which a dental office should be prepared including syncope, angina attack, MI, cardiac arrhythmia, stroke, hypertensive episode, airway obstruction, seizure, local anesthetic overdose, epinephrine reaction, hypoglycemia, asthma attack, hyperventilation, and allergic reaction/anaphylaxis. • Render emergency care in real time in a stress-free simulated surgical environment; respond to variations in patient response. • Assign roles and direct your team in rescuing your patient. • Define medical risk assessment and learn its relevance to the dental patient. • Understand the stress reaction and how it affects dental patients. • Learn how to identify red flags in the health history and determine whether it is safe to perform the planned procedure. • Learn how to create your own emergency protocols for managing medical emergencies and review the drugs and equipment you should have in the dental office. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

Boomer Dentistry AND Managing Implant Mucositis versus Peri-Implantitis is organized by University of Florida (UF) and will be held on Nov 15, 2019 at UF College of Dentistry, Gainesville, Florida, United States of America. Continuing Education Units 7 CEUs. Lecture. Boomer Dentistry: Managing Dental Conditions of the “Boomer Generation”: Course Description: The over “sixty” population will increase significantly during the next decade and with that comes an increased frequency of oral conditions associated with the “Baby Boomer Generation”. Two primary areas of concern surrounding chronic inflammation are periodontitis, with over 40% having tooth loss disease, and Xerostomia, with the compromised lifestyle resulting from associated symptoms and root caries. Our course will review these primary diseases from diagnosis to management for a lifetime. We will review the generational characteristics of this age group with emphasis on understanding the population in order to enhance motivational interviewing and gain positive case acceptance. Course Objectives: • Standardizing the collection of periodontal data in an efficient manner and reviewing successful parameters to determine tooth survival in short and long term prognosis • Developing “realistic” non-surgical therapies and the respective re-evaluation with emphasis on “new” anti-inflammatory systems including micro-ultrasonic and laser technology, and nutraceuticals such as probiotics and anti-oxidants • Understanding the etiology of Xerostomia from medications to Sjogrens • Creating management strategies including local and systemic therapies for “dry mouth” and appreciating oral conditions such as caries activity as a result of the condition • Establishing techniques to communicate with the Boomer generation Managing Implant Mucositis versus Peri- Implantitis: Course Description: Inflammation around dental endosseous implants ranges from mucositis to bone loss implantitis. Recent studies reveal that implant success depends on quality prevention and maintenance while failure rates continue to be at an all time high. The dental team including the dental hygienist requires the adequate systems and tools to enhance the longevity of implant health. Course Objectives: Build your confidence in implant management by: • Enhancing your diagnostic skills for implantitis versus mucositis • Considering local versus systemic antibiotics in detoxification/decontamination • Creating innovative at home oral hygiene systems that enhance compliance • Incorporating safe techniques for at-the-chair ultrasonic debridement • Establishing the role of dental lasers in both open and closed procedures • Determining the prognosis of implantitis implant and the ultimate treatment plan Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
