Clinical Considerations for Treating the Dental Patient with ALS
AGD Subject Code(s): 754 CE credits: 1 Cost: $20.00
Faculty: Kimberly M. Parsons, MEd, CDA, EFDA, RDH, Amy J. Schneider, LDH, CDA, BS

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive degenerative disorder that affects the nervous system, particularly the motor neurons. It may affect either spinal or bulbar neurons, which classifies how an individual’s symptoms present. The prognosis for individuals with ALS is not promising, usually resulting in death within three to five years of diagnosis. Most management of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis focuses on palliative care, determined by the affected individual’s ongoing symptoms. An essential component of palliative care is management of the individual’s oral conditions. Manifestations of ALS may affect the dental practitioner’s care of patients with this disease. These modifications will be dependent upon the individual’s current symptoms and needs.

Dental Professionals and HIV - Part 1
AGD Subject Code(s): 755 CE credits: 3 Cost: $59.00
Faculty: Richard H. Nagelberg, DDS
15762
With the introduction of highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART) for HIV, AIDS is now manageable and patients are living lives relatively free of many of the oral conditions that characterized the disease prior to and during previous treatment regimens. Although the incidence of oral diseases has improved, many patients with HIV and emerging AIDS may still develop one or more oral conditions that dental professionals need to be aware of when examining the patient with AIDS. Effective office infection control procedures to prevent spread of the disease are as important today as they were 30 years ago when AIDS was first confronted. This educational course is divided into two parts. The first part reviews current science related to the immune events associated with the oral route of transmission of the virus, new information on the pathogenesis of the disease, concepts related to the oral cavity as a viral reservoir for HIV and oral pathology that is associated with AIDS. The second part deals with the practical clinical considerations that need to be addressed when treating the AIDS patient.

Update on Medication Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw
AGD Subject Code(s): 739, 741 CE credits: 3 Cost: $59.00
Faculty: Frieda Atherton Pickett, RDH, MS
15855

The American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons recently updated management recommendations and related information for osteonecrosis of the jaw. The condition formerly referred to as bisphosphonate-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (BRONJ) was renamed medication-related osteonecrosis of the jaw (MRONJ) due to reports of several non-bisphosphonate drugs resulting in the loss of alveolar bone and clinically appearing similar to BRONJ. This course will cover new information on proposed etiologies, mechanisms of drug actions and physical events which may be related to development of the loss of alveolar bone. All pharmacologic agents proposed to play a role in the development of the alveolar bone destruction will be identified and the degree of risk for each agent discussed. Information to discuss with patients taking medications associated with MRONJ are included to assist in patient information identified in the AAOMS guidelines.

Women’s Health & the Oral Systemic Link
CE credits: 1 Cost: $0.00
Faculty: Eileen Morrissey, RDH, MS
16092

RDH CE Evening Express Archived Presentation:

As women age, their bodies undergo hormonal and systemic changes as part of life’s natural progression. We are well aware that the body is connected to the oral cavity. How these systemic changes affect the mouth, as well as the potential double-­‐edged sword of oral health’s impact on whole body health will be explored in this webinar.

Learning Objectives:

  • An overview of physiological changes in women from young womanhood through the elder years.
  • The role of inflammation in the mouth and its potential link to systemic disease.
  • Major illnesses in women; oral manifestations of disease and disease treatment.
  • Addressing the oral issues: treatment and outcomes.

Women's Health
AGD Subject Code(s): 742 CE credits: 3 Cost: $59.00
Faculty: Cathy Seckman, RHD
15573

Dental hygienists must be knowledgeable about women’s oral and overall health. This course begins with a history of theories and research on the oral-systemic link going back to antiquity. It lists those issues most closely associated with the oral environment including; preeclampsia, osteoporosis, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, chronic kidney disease and lung disease. The majority of hygienists are women and they spend more time with patients than other dental professionals. They are uniquely qualified to keep both female and male patients informed on oral-systemic links and contribute to individualized treatment planning.
