Understanding Your Dental Patient with Significant Medical Disease- Part III- Immunology, Psychiatry, Neurology, Oncology, & Test Labs
With Bart Johnson, DDS, MSMedicine is becoming an exponentially more complex practice, and our dental patients are presenting with ever-increasingly complex histories. In order to make the best dental decisions with our patients, we need to understand the intimate details of their overall status. This will be both a lecture and participation course. We will go over the topics of Immunology, Psychiatry, Neurology, Oncology and Laboratory diagnostics. There will be a detailed discussion of how dental treatment might need to be modified based on the patient’s individual situation. Real-life examples of medical reports/lab tests/diagnostics will be given out and reviewed so the participant can gain practical experience in reading and understanding the type of information that is likely to be sent to them by a medical doctor’s office.
