1. Medical Emergency Update 
(Presented with Steven Beadnell, DMD)
 
Medical emergencies can and do occur in dental practices every day.  Over the next fifteen years the segment of the population at highest risk for medical emergencies, those 65 and older, will become a larger percentage of our patients. The entire dental team must be prepared to recognize and respond to a variety of medical emergencies that could be precipitated by the stress of the dental environment.  This course will discuss the diagnosis, prevention, and management of common medical emergencies that might occur in dental offices.  This four-hour course is appropriate for the entire dental team and meets the medical emergency education requirement of the Oregon Board of Dentistry for license renewal and anesthesia permits.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will:

  • Be able to identify those at increased risk for specific medical emergencies
  • Be able to diagnose the common medical emergencies based on the signs and symptoms demonstrated by a patient
  • Develop a rational approach to the management of medical emergencies in general as well as the specific protocols for managing each medical emergency discussed
  • Be able to identify modifiable risk factors for medical emergencies and understand methods to prevent their occurrence in the dental environment

 

2. Management of Impacted Teeth: Canines, Second and Third Molars 
(Presented with Steven Beadnell, DMD)
 
Impacted teeth are a common finding in young patients and the proper diagnosis and management of the impacted teeth is essential in having a good outcome for the patient.  Whil wisdom teeth are the most commonly impacted teeth, impacted canines and second molars are quite common findings as well.  This course will discuss the clinical predictors of problematic eruption of teeth, review the diagnostic challenges associated with impacted teeth, discuss preventive measures that might be implemented to avoid failure of eruption of teeth and review the surgical management of impacted teeth once the diagnosis has been made.  This course is appropriate for dentists and dental hygienists involved in the diagnosis and treatment planning for management of impacted teeth.

At the conclusion of this course, attendees will:

  • Be able to identify those at increased risk for impaction of canines, second molars and wisdom teeth and understand the morbidity associated with the failure of eruption of these teeth
  • Understand the appropriate clinical parameters to evaluate to determine the likelihood of impaction of canines and second molars
  • Understand measures that can be taken to minimize the risk of impaction of canines and second molars
  • Be able to develop a course of treatment for impacted canines, second molars and wisdom teeth
