Well over 500 prescription and non-prescription medications have xerostomic side effects, which are compounded when these medications are used concomitantly, as is often the case for our medically complex patients. In addition, little attention is sometimes given to those systemic diseases which contribute to the development of xerostomia, and the exacerbation of its complications. This CE webinar will provide participants with an overview of xerostomia, medications used in its management and the impact of both the disease and its treatment on dental therapy. Special emphasis will be given to vaping and the use of cannabis and their effects on producing and/or exacerbating dry mouth.

In this CE webinar, please join us as we explore how oral healthcare providers can make a significant difference in identifying patients who have asymptomatic or poorly controlled diabetes, and how glycemic control influences periodontal stability in the reduced periodontium of a patient with diabetes. Addressing diabetes has always been of paramount importance; however, with what we've learned about how diabetes may increase susceptibility to life-threatening viruses such as SARS-CoV-2 and associated complications, there has never been a more critical time for OHPCs to join the fight against diabetes.

Mask mouth, hypersensitivity, bleeding gingiva and the list goes on! Much like a fingerprint no two dental patients or their needs are the same. Whether you are treating a child or a more seasoned patient their homecare needs and routines may vary. In the midst of the pandemic oral self-care has changed and patients are delaying dental visits. In turn, dental professionals are faced with the challenge of educating and treating patients who have let oral self-care diminish. This CE webinar will offer an insight into creating customized care plans and motivational techniques to encourage optimal patient homecare.

This CE webinar advocates for the non-traditional role of OHCPs in screening patients for several noncommunicable diseases and explores the drivers of this transformation in dentistry and dental hygiene. Several technologies for medical screening (chairside) will be introduced, including glucose and lipid analyses. Challenges to implementing these non-traditional services into the dental practice will also be discussed. The CE webinar concludes by inviting participants to take part in a poll that will seek to determine OHCPs’ attitudes about implementing medical screening, their feelings of competency to perform these procedures, and education and training necessary to be successful in this new practice paradigm.

Worldwide, an estimated 390 million people have diabetes - and that number keeps growing. This patient population has specialized needs when it comes to periodontal care. Treating diabetic patients is different than nondiabetic patients. This CE webinar provides cut-to-the-chase explanations about the interrelationship between diabetes and periodontal disease and information to empower oral healthcare providers to screen dental patients for diabetes and prediabetes, articulate scientifically-founded, key messages for patient education about this interrelationship, and better understand how poor glycemic control in a diabetic patient should influence treatment planning. This CE webinar is a must for clinicians who are still treating patients who have diabetes the same way they treat patients without diabetes.
