Course Information

The challenge faced by all clinicians today is to provide safe and effective dental treatment to their medically complex patients. It is imperative that all dental practitioners be equally aware of the medical considerations of agents commonly used in the practice of dentistry as well as the dental considerations of the medications frequently prescribed for the treatment of multiple systemic diseases.
