Product Description:

This 1-year subscription provides the necessary pharmacology and dental reference information to support medication and treatment safety in the dental office. 

Performing oral conscious-sedation significantly increases the risk for the practitioner and the patient. With informed consent, the patient has an expectation to be protected from adverse outcomes that are preventable. The average dentist does not have time to take away from their busy practice to read all of the latest literature and memorize the PDR to know the most current risks posed by drug interactions. 

That is why we offer Lexicomp Online for Dentistry. Lexicomp is the market leader in providing dental-specific pharmacology and clinical information, and is seen as the industry benchmark for ensuring medication and treatment safety in the dental setting. 

Our team of experts takes the time to present the dentist with up-to-the-minute drug interaction information. Beyond being comprehensive and up to date, the pharmacology information is easy to access. In a few seconds, the practitioner can run a check on the patient before the oral conscious-sedation procedure. 

Any interactions, risks, or warnings can be handled prior to the procedure. In this age of litigation, there can be no shortcuts for patient safety. Our patients trust us to protect them. For dentists performing Oral Conscious Sedation, Lexicomp Online for Dentistry is not a luxury, it is a necessity!
