Many dentists lack confidence in their ability to read an EKG or interpret a heart rhythm. It’s for this reason that Dr. Leslie Fang, in this one hour CE lecture, is teaching the proper use of an EKG as it pertains to sedation dentistry. In short, it’s not as complex as you might have thought and it’s too important to neglect.

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.
