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
