Using antimicrobials appropriately is vital to dental practice. Join Dr. Huffines for a fast-paced update on properly using antivirals, antifungals, and antibiotics. First, we will explore the differences in how viruses, fungi, and bacteria cause oral infections. Then you will discover the most common mistakes clinicians make in diagnosing oral infections – if the wrong diagnosis is made, everything that follows is futile.  The latest research will guide our discussion on correctly using antimicrobials chairside and detailed prescribing recommendations will be given. Non-traditional therapeutics will be evaluated. The latest recommendations for antibiotic use from the ADA, various dental specialty groups, and international organizations will be explored in detail. The most recent research about what dental patients expect from antibiotics may shock you. Update your skills in this important part of oral healthcare.

  • Avoid common mistakes in diagnosing oral infections.
