Target Audience: General Dentists, Dental Specialists, and Auxiliary Dental Staff. Accreditation: 14 CE Credits Program Purpose: The days of marketing your practice through esthetic dentistry may be over or a losing battle. Research shows that over twenty-five percent of the dental population do not visit a dentist on a regular basis out of fear. They may be afraid of the injection, the sound of the drill or the anticipated pain associated with a dental procedure. In order for the dentist to treat this unique population, he or she must understand the unique challenges they present. My practice is dedicated to treating the anxious patient and over the past 35 years, I've developed systems to treat this underserved group of dental patients. I've established simple jewels you can use when treating the apprehensive patient. You will see that one visit root canal therapy is predictable and necessary. You will be amazed at what we can now do with direct composite to provide long term solutions to difficult problems. We will also review, through case studies, how to manage medical emergencies. Some of our patients and neighbors are using sedatives or opioids. We will review how to reverse these agents and utilize a variety of airway adjuncts to stabilize the patient until help arrives. You have taken CPR and other programs. This program pulls it all together. Course Objectives: • Review local anesthesia techniques. • Be able to offer unique treatment plan options and one visit definitive dentistry from one visit root canal therapy to immediate placement resin-bonded bridges. • Determine what non-pharmacological options will work in your practice. • Understand the difference between Anxiolysis and Sedation dentistry. • Learn how to prevent the most common medical emergencies. • Recognize when a patient is in distress and requires immediate medical attention. • Understand how to utilize airway adjuncts and advanced airways in respiratory arrest. • Determine which Emergency Drugs and Equipment you need for your home or office.
