Emergency Medicine Part 8: Chest Pain

This program discusses acute coronary syndrome – angina pectoris and myocardial infarction – conditions that initially manifest themselves as ‘chest pain.’ The prevention, recognition and management of angina pectoris and myocardial infarction are reviewed in-depth.

ADA Store - Practical Guide to OSHA Training

This quiz accompanies the ADA Practical Guide to OSHA Training found in the ADA Store. The complete kit contains a comprehensive DVD and corresponding workbook that offers an in-depth look at many infection control topics.

Although the DVD and workbooks portions can be completed in a group study setting, each participant must register for and complete their own quiz here in order to receive 3 CE credits.

Intranasal Local Anesthesia for Maxillary Non-Molar Teeth [NO CE]

PLEASE NOTE: This video is available free of charge to anyone who would like to view the educational content.  It does not award CE.  If you would like to earn CE for this course, please register for this version instead.

Local anesthesia (LA) forms the backbone of pain control techniques in dentistry. The receipt of a LA injection is, unfortunately, the most traumatic part of the dental procedure for most patients. Trypanophobia (fear of needles) is estimated to be present in ~10% of the world’s population. Fainting during LA injection is, far and away, the most common medical emergency encountered in dentistry. The ability to obtain profound pulpal anesthesia for restorative dental procedures without injection will enable a dentist to provide comfortable, safe and effective treatment to many needle-phobic persons who previously avoided seeking dental care.

An intranasal local anesthetic mist – a combination of tetracaine HCl and oxymetazoline – has been developed that provides pulpal anesthesia to the maxillary non-molar teeth. In this program Dr. Malamed will discuss the problem of needle-phobia as well as the development and efficacy of this new intranasal local anesthetic mist.

Image is Everything: The Power of 3D Ultra-Low Dose Imaging in Dentistry [NO CE]

PLEASE NOTE: This video is available free of charge to anyone who would like to view the educational content.  It does not award CE.  If you would like to earn CE for this course, please register for this version instead.

In this presentation, Dr. Antenucci will address a rationale and approach for optimal and routine radiographic imaging in clinical dentistry with 3D. Both 2D imaging such as panoramic images and panoramic bite wings, as well as 3D imaging using Ultra low Dose Conebeam technology are incorporated to achieve optimal treatment planning for the patient best care.  Protocols in imaging have changed dramatically over the course of this past decade with the introduction of new technologies that allow dentists to visualize problems and structures in infinite detail while delivering less radiation to the patient than with traditional imaging techniques. ALARA was yesterday's standard when considering diagnostic radiation and patient health and safety - ALADA is today's standard.   Today’s advanced imaging allows superior diagnosis at lower doses of radiation.

Emergency Medicine Part 9: Cardiac Arrest

Cardiac arrest occurs when the heart ceases to pump blood. The victim – unconscious, not breathing, and with no blood pressure – will die unless effective resuscitative efforts are commenced immediately. This program discusses the recognition and management of cardiac arrest emphasizing the importance of basic life support (CPR) and defibrillation (AED) in improving the chances for a successful outcome.

Prophylactic Antibiotic Use in Dental Patients with Prosthetic Joints: What is the Evidence?

The 2014 Council of Scientific Affairs panel review of the evidence failed to find an association between dental procedures and prosthetic joint infection, concluding that prophylactic antibiotic use is generally not recommended prior to dental procedures. This course will explore why this clinical recommendation should be integrated with the practitioner's professional judgment and the patient's needs and preferences. Additionally, information pertaining to the appropriate-use criteria on prophylactic antibiotic use in dental patients with prosthetic joints will be presented.

Practical Infection Control in Oral Healthcare Settings

Participants in this course will be introduced to evidence-based information that will facilitate compliance with and the implementation of infection control rules and recommendations made by federal, state, and local agencies and professional organizations.
