Price: $29.95 
Item # L0911  

Release Date: July 31, 2013

Expiration Date: June 1, 2019

This course addresses common complications associated with oral surgical procedures and outlines the evidence-based methods to prevent, minimize, or manage them. Patient education about what to expect postoperatively helps minimize emergency after-hours phone calls and the need for additional treatment. Proper techniques of postoperative pain or infection control may also facilitate the healing process and reduce both postoperative complications for patients and stress for practitioners.

This basic-level course for dentists, dental hygienists, and dental assistants will strengthen the dental team’s ability to identify common complications associated with oral surgery procedures and minimize, manage, and treat postoperative complications.

Ethical Decision Making in Dental Practice, 2nd Edition

Price: $29.95 
Item # L0913  

Release Date: July 30, 2013

Review Date: August 1, 2016

Expiration Date: July 31, 2019

Ethical questions cannot be answered by “dental science”; rather, it is often necessary to delve into broader, more basic questions that do not have clear-cut answers and require thoughtful reflection by professionals. What does it mean, for example, to be a professional? What are my obligations to this given patient, my colleagues, my community, and to myself? Ethical decision making is also required in relatively narrow questions: What would be in this patient’s best interests? Should I advertise my services in this manner, or even at all?

This basic-level course introduces the concept of ethical decision making and provides three ethical decision-making models to help dental healthcare providers navigate complex dilemmas. Case studies are used to help reinforce important ideas and provide a practical application of the concepts. The ability to systematically analyze and solve any ethical dilemma is arguably as important as the technical skills required to perform clinical dentistry.

Dental phobia may be a universal barrier to seeking oral health care. Dental phobics are not comfortable seeking regular dental care, even when dental problems arise. The dental team needs to be aware of the concerns of this population in order to reduce fear and anxiety and provide needed oral health care.

This basic-level course distinguishes between the definitions of fear, anxiety, and phobia. It identifies the most common reactions that accompany phobias and common reasons for avoidance of dental treatment. The course describes the behavioral treatment options for anxious dental patients and techniques for reducing general anxiety in dental patients. This course will provide dental professionals with basic knowledge and information on dental fear and avoidance that will enable them to diagnose and manage patients who experience dental-related anxiety, fear, and phobia. This knowledge will help dental professionals prepare for these patients and their unique needs and help these patients feel more comfortable seeking their care in the future.
