|MEDICAL AND DENTAL IMPLICATIONS OF THE MOST PRESCRIBED MEDICATIONS!!
Presented by Harold Crossley, DDS, PhD
August 31, 2012 8:30 am – 3:30 pm
Many physician-prescribed medications used by your patients have dental implications and side effects affecting your treatment plan. Many of these medications are the drugs of choice of “doctor shoppers”. And one of these medications is the most prescribed medication abused by adolescents. Some medications are more likely to cause violent behavior and others can cause a “burning mouth syndrome”. And lastly, who sets the standard for healthy blood pressure, pap smears, and cholesterol?
This presentation includes the indications, contraindications, and side effects of the most commonly prescribed medications. Many of these medications were not approved when you took your pharmacology course in dental school. These medications represent 30% of all prescriptions taken by your dental patients and familiarity with these drugs will provide the dental practitioner with a better appreciation for the health profile of your dental patient.
