This is a three-module video course. You’ll earn one hour of continuing education credit upon completion. High-fear dental patients are delicate. Dental team members not familiar with them can easily misinterpret their mannerisms, behavior, and questions for something else. This confusion makes it hard for dental teams to build trust, the top priority for fearful patients. In this course, April Burus, a team member in Dr. Anthony Feck’s Lexington office, explains the characteristics and nuances of high-fear patients. She shares the tactics and strategies her team uses to guide patients through treatment, starting with their first inquiry. In each module, April answers questions from the audience—a lively mix of office managers, hygienists, and dental assistants.

Dentists are the third-highest prescribers of antibiotics in all outpatient settings in the United States, and the ADA Council on Scientific Affairs has created new antibiotic guidelines.

The new Guidelines focus on localized infection, with a little time on spreading infections. They were predicated on a multidisciplinary evaluation of the risk-benefit ratio of antibiotics and evidence-based clinical practice guidelines on antibiotic use for the urgent management of pulpal- and periapical-related dental pain and intraoral swelling.

In this one hour CE presentation, Dr. Fang helps you understand and put them into practice. This is now included in the Full Ultimate Companion Series course.
