Course Description:

At a time when both dentistry and medicine are galloping ahead at break-neck speed, it is critical for the dental professional to understand developments in medicine that can critically impact care of their patients.


Part A: Update in Coronary Artery Disease and Its Impact on Dentistry

The type of stent placed in patients with heart disease dictates the drugs prescribed to them. Currently, there are five types of stents, all of which work differently.

In Part A, you’ll learn…

  • How to manage patients with stents
  • What kind of drug is placed in a dual therapy stent (DTS)?


Part B: Congestive Heart Failure: The Number One Heart Disease and the Dental Implications

Dentists who opt to treat patients with heart disease must perform a risk stratification. That’s because a patient with a compromised vascular system is susceptible to multiple adverse outcomes.

In Part B, you’ll learn…

  • What research says about performing dental intervention after a heart attack
  • How vascular health affects oral health (and vice versa)
