Description:

Overview
While electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) such as e-cigarettes were initially marketed as a harm reduction and smoking cessation strategy, there is conflicting evidence regarding their effectiveness as a smoking cessation strategy.
Given increasing rates of use of ENDS, especially among youth, and emerging concerns about potential ENDS-related harm, dental providers are strategically positioned to support population-level tobacco reduction efforts and provide health information about ENDS.
There is a pressing need for continuing education opportunities to help dental providers improve ENDS-related knowledge and counseling practices.

Presenters
Nicholas Chadi, MD, MPH:Clinical Assistant Professor at the University of Montreal, and clinician-scientist at Sainte-Justine University Hospital Centre in Montreal
Neeta Chandwani, DDS, MscD:Pediatric dentist at Boston Children's Hospital and the Predoctoral Program Director of Pediatric Dentistry at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine

Learning Objectives
Upon completion of this course, the dental professional should be able to:
• Understand the origin and development of electronic nicotine delivery systems (ENDS) such as "e-cigarettes" and "Puff Bars"
• Understand the mechanism of action and combustion science of ENDS
• Discuss the epidemiology and trends associated with youth vaping, including use of flavored, nicotine and cannabis vaping products
• Describe the neurobiology of nicotine and cannabis and the unique vulnerability of the developing adolescent brain
• Use evidence-based screening and brief intervention strategy to help prevent and reduce youth vaping

American Dental Association on-demand webinar
The information contained in this program was current as of April 29, 2021.

Course Overview
In this course, participants will be introduced to pemphigus vulgaris (PV), an autoimmune disease that frequently presents with oral lesions. Early diagnosis and early treatment of PV are associated with improved outcomes, and dental providers are often the first-line providers in diagnosis and management. To help dental professionals become familiar with PV and the procedures required to diagnose it, this course will use case-based examples to illustrate signs and symptoms of PV and evidence-based methods to confirm diagnosis. Initiating oral care early in the disease process and referral to the appropriate specialist are key to optimal management of PV. This course will review the need for initial and ongoing oral care, along with data for the first-line treatment of PV and treatment options for relapsing or refractory disease.

 Learning objectives:
• Identify patients with oral PV   
• Determine optimal initial treatment for patients with oral PV
• Describe appropriate laboratory testing to confirm a PV diagnosis

Embracing a Culture of Safety in Dentistry (Recorded Webinar)
Member Price: $0.00
CE Credit(s): 2
Retail Price: $0.00
Course Created on: 02/11/2021
/education/ViewCourse.aspx?id=524|88017
Description:

The information contained in this program was current as of Nov. 30, 2020.

In light of an evidence-based approach to practice, most dental professionals consider dental care to be safe and effective; but as our medical colleagues discovered two decades ago, we don’t know what we don’t know. The dental profession has no systematic mechanism to documenting blamelessly adverse events and risks to patient and provider safety, by which dentists can collectively learn from the experience of others without having to experience that adverse event themselves. Safety in health care is a profession’s ultimate ethical and professional commitment. How can dentists improve "safety culture" and make a difference for patients and themselves?

Objectives
• Describe how re-evaluating safety in dentistry can benefit their patients and themselves
• Identify examples of safety issues in dental practice
• Describe ways to immediately improve safety culture in dental practice

Presenters
Charles S. Czerepak, DMD, MS, Pediatric Dentist, Pine Dental Care
Jennifer Flynn, C.P.H.R.M., Risk Manager, Dentist’s Advantage
