Update on Antimicrobial Prophylaxis and Oral Cancer Screening in Dental Practice New Controversies
Dr. Huber PM Live Interactive Webinar
January 13, 2023
Recent guidance published jointly by the American Dental Association and the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons pertaining to the prevention of prosthetic joint infection in the dental setting has been recently introduced. In addition new recommendations from the United States Preventive Services Task Force addressing screening for oral cancer have also been introduced. Both of these new sets of guidelines have generated much debate and consternation in the dental profession. The purpose of this course is to update the practitioner on the pros and cons of both recommendations and offer a perspective on how best to interpret and implement.
At conclusion, participants should be able to discuss:
Relevant risks of dental care as it pertains to
prosthetic joint infection
Have a better understanding of the recently released guidance addressing prosthetic joint infection and dental care
Discuss the oral screening and its integral relationship with the comprehensive head and neck examination
