Roger G. Sanger DDS, MS“ With the proliferation of drug therapy in our pediatric population, it is essential that dental practitioners understand the interaction of these drugs with the drugs that dentists administer and prescribe for children and teenagers. Thus, the Lexicomp digital system of researching these drug-drug interaction is not only essential but also mandatory for standard of care in today’s dental practice. I “use it” and “I teach it” I recommend that every practitioner have it and use it in their practice.”
Carol Wilson, DMD "I work in a practice with an aging population who present with polypharmacy. We perform a great deal of sedation cases each week. Lexicomp is a critical part of our daily operations. A Lexicomp drug interaction analysis is run prior to any sedation. I also use it before prescribing antibiotics to those who have multiple allergies to drugs or for those patients who alert me that their medications create interactions with several antibiotics the patient cannot remember. One of my favorite features is the analysis with the patient's medications and our local anesthetics, as daily, this is a dentist's major concern. Lexicomp provides me with the peace of mind that I am well informed before providing treatment to a patient."
Anthony Feck, DMD "We depend on Lexi-Comp every day for trusted, up to date, vital information on medications our patients are taking to help us better plan for their treatment, and avoid potentially dangerous drug interactions. I can't think of any software product I use that gives me a better return on investment"
Jerry Wellbrock, DMD I would like to emphasize the importance of using Lexicomp not only for myself but for the safety of my patients. While I initially started using Lexicomp many years ago primarily with my sedation patients, today I find that I am using Lexicomp for several of my patients everyday. I have many senior patients who are taking multiple medications and it is impossible to keep up on all of these as they seem to come out daily with new drugs that I have never heard of or can keep up with all the needed information. I greatly appreciate that Lexicomp is updated instantly when these newer drug appear or when the information on even the older drugs is changing. I have looked at a few other online pharmaceutical apps but in my opinion Lexicomp is one of the most complete and easiest to use giving me rapid and complete information. Highly recommend.
