OSHA and CDC Infection Control Standards and Barrier Precautions in the Dental Healthcare Setting, 2nd Edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # L0733  

Release Date: July 31, 2013

Review Date: April 15, 2016

Expiration Date: April 14, 2019

 

There are more than one-half million dental healthcare personnel in the United States, a total that includes approximately 195,000 dentists, 200,000 registered dental hygienists, 300,000 dental assistants, and 35,000 dental laboratory technicians. Most dentists are solo practitioners working in outpatient, ambulatory care facilities using instruments that generate spatter, mists, aerosols, or particulate matter. In such settings there is a strong possibility that patients and dental personnel will be exposed to blood and other potentially pathogenic infectious material unless precautions are taken. Fortunately, by understanding certain principles of disease transmission and using infection control practices, dental personnel can prevent disease transmission.

This basic-level course helps to protect both patient and practitioner safety by providing dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants with a review of the CDC recommendations for barrier precautions in the dental healthcare setting and the application of OSHA regulations to infection control. By understanding certain principles of disease transmission and using infection control practices, dental personnel can prevent disease transmission. The course explains universal precautions and describes personal protective equipment. Environmental infection control procedures are identified including general cleaning recommendations cleaning clinical contact surfaces and cleaning housekeeping surfaces.

Recurrent Aphthous Stomatitis: A Review for Dental Professionals, 2nd Edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # L0779  

Release Date: July 30, 2013

Review Date: September 7, 2016

Expiration Date: September 6, 2019

 

Recurrent aphthous stomatitis (RAS) – also known as recurrent aphthous ulcerations, aphthous ulcerations, and canker sores – is a chronic inflammatory disease that is characterized by painful oral ulcers that recur with varying frequency. Although the etiology of RAS is multifactorial, it has been linked to decreased levels of folic acid and other hematologic deficiencies, including deficiencies in vitamin B12, iron, and ferritin. Hematologic deficiencies may be a significant risk factor for RAS.

Numerous medical conditions, as well as certain medications taken over long periods, can also cause RAS. When a patient is experiencing these painful ulcerations, the dental professional must have sufficient knowledge to identify the predisposing factors for RAS and make the connection between the occurrence of RAS and certain medical conditions or medication usage.

After reviewing the etiology and symptoms of RAS, as well as the predisposing factors for development of these oral ulcerations, this basic-level course outlines the process for diagnosing RAS and the treatments currently available for the different types of RAS.

The practice of dentistry is multifaceted. Not only must dental professionals have the technical skills to treat patients appropriately and safely, they must also practice within a professional ethical framework that is sometimes more challenging than the dental procedures themselves. This basic-level course helps dental professionals gain a better understanding of dental ethics, professionalism, and current ethical challenges to the profession, with particular emphasis on the impact of the digital age. Dental professionals may be eager to incorporate the latest technologies into their practices and into their private lives, but must consider the ethical implications of doing so.

Item # L0771  

Release Date: July 31, 2013

Review Date: August 4, 2016

Expiration Date: August 3, 2019

 

The oral cavity is an ideal place for microorganisms to grow. Many distinct bacterial groups live in the oral cavity, and some of these bacteria are considered to be part of the normal oral flora. Unfortunately, some of these common bacterial species can also be the cause of opportunistic infections (infections by species that are avirulent in healthy individuals but that can be fatal in patients with compromised immunity. It is important to be aware of the causes of common lesions found in the oral cavity so they can be properly diagnosed and treated.

This basic-level course reviews the soft tissue lesions found in the oral cavity of adults and discusses their diagnosis and treatment. Common problems include inflammatory and infectious processes, degenerative processes, and abnormal growths.

Obstructive Sleep Apnea: A Comprehensive Review for Dental Professionals

Price: $29.95 
Item # L0776  

Release Date: August 26, 2016

Expiration Date: August 25, 2019

 

Sleep-disordered breathing is a common disorder, causing a range of harmful clinical, social, and economic sequelae. Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is the most common sleep-related breathing disorder. The prevalence of OSA is increasing rapidly. Dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants are well positioned to recognize this disorder, refer patients for appropriate testing, and successfully treat patients with oral appliances. Dental professionals trained in treating sleep-disordered breathing are a vital part of a multidisciplinary team on the forefront of dealing with this serious public health issue.

This course reviews OSA from a dental perspective. It addresses current findings on the links between overall health and OSA and cites common presenting symptoms likely to be encountered in the dental practice. This intermediate-level course discusses the latest evidence-based diagnostic approaches for OSA and outlines recommended treatment strategies, including oral appliances and surgical intervention, to mitigate the health impact of this common condition.

Geriatric Dentistry: Providing Care for an Aging Population, Updated 1st Edition

Price: $19.95 
Item # L0855  

Review Date: May 17, 2017

Expiration Date: May 16, 2020

Original Release Date: April 28, 2014

 

The purpose of this course is to help all dental professionals gain an appreciation for the significant opportunities the aging population will bring to their practices, along with the challenges. This course will provide dental professionals with basic knowledge and information in gerontology and geriatric dentistry that will enhance their ability to diagnose and manage older patients who have been affected by age-dependent or age-associated changes. The target audience for this basic-level course will be dentists, dental hygienists and dental assistants of all ages and experience levels.

It is often difficult for dentists and dental hygienists to distinguish between normal aging-related changes in the tissues of the oral cavity and those resulting from pathological changes. Some dental professionals are unaware of appropriate strategies for dealing with patients with cognitive impairments who exhibit care resistance. Additionally, many dental professionals lack knowledge of the biological changes that occur as a part of normal aging and the clinical modifications that should be made in dental practice to accommodate those changes. This course will address these gaps in knowledge and many others. Knowledge gained in this course will help dental professionals prepare for the increased number of older adult patients who require their care now and those who will seek their care in the future.
