CDS Meetings & Events
Join us at noon (CST) Wednesday May 14 for our next CDS Webinar.
Dental Pharmacology is one of the mainstays of dental therapy. Bacteria, viruses, fungi and immunologic responses make up a wide range of oral diseases that commonly require pharmacological management. This presentation will cover the drugs of choice and their alternatives for these oral problems. It will also touch on the effective over-the-counter (OTC) products for a diverse range of oral complaints and problems seen daily in dental practice. This is one course all dentists and hygienists should take to ensure they are current in this important area of oral healthcare.
Dr. Jacobsen is a leading speaker on the topic of dental pharmacology. He is a Diplomat of the American Academy of Oral Medicine and directed the Oral Medicine Clinic at the Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in San Francisco for more than 30 years. He lectures widely on the topic of dental drugs, OTC dental products and the management of medically complex patients. He is the author of the Little Dental Drug Booklet, a handbook of dental pharmacology.
The webinar is free to CDS members and $30 for non-members. It offers 1 CE credit. Online registration will be available starting in early 2014.
* If you are unable to participate on the day of the event, the webinar will be made available on demand the following day. However, the webinar will only be available to those who registered in advance and can only be viewed twice.
