In this 2 Part Module, you'll learn about the Updates 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. Then you'll study 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. This is Module Ten of the Ultimate Cheat Sheet Companion Series.

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.

Dr. Fang helps you understand and put them into practice. This is now included in the Full Ultimate Companion Series course.

This course is worth 1 CE.
