Donuts, Diabetes, and Dentistry: The Vital Role of Dental Professionals

CE Credits: 1.5

There is no shortage of patients with Diabetes; 34.2 million Americans have the condition. Nearly 88 Million Americans are considered pre-diabetic. This results in 3 out of 5 people experiencing some form of insulin resistance who don’t know. Insulin resistance contributes to the patient’s overall health and the body’s ability to have symbiosis. As dental professionals, we play a vital role in the prevention of diabetes as well as the management of the oral implications experienced by those with Diabetes. This course will equip dental professionals with the knowledge they need to identify signs and symptoms of insulin resistance and the latest approaches to collaborative diabetic preventive oral care.

Course objectives:

  • Review type 1 diabetes and type 2 diabetes
  • Identify what is contraindicated for dental treatment based on the patient’s HbA1c levels
  • Discover the risks of soft and hard tissue disease among diabetic patients
  • Investigate the latest technologies to prevent the progression of oral diseases both chairside and at home
