Thirty -three million Americans are afflicted by Diabetes Mellitus, with 7.2 million cases undiagnosed. With the increasing diabetes epidemic, it is estimated that by the year 2050 one in three Americans will be diabetic in their lifetime. Diabetic patients are 2-3 times more likely to develop periodontal disease than non-diabetics. With 80% of diabetics residing in the middle and lower class American society dental clinicians have the ability to make a difference in the life of these individuals. In 2018 there have been new CDT codes implemented to aid dental care workers to identify and help manage the oral systemic link of diabetes. This course will help identify the types, causes and treatments to provide the best care possible.
One in 54 children have been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum, with approximately 100 newly diagnosed patients daily. Since first identified as a disorder in the United States in the 1940’s, Autism Spectrum is the fastest growing developmental disorder in the United States. Treating patients on the Autism Spectrum in a dental practice presents a multitude of challenges from behavior and cooperation concerns to related health concerns, not to mention the oral considerations associated with medications. As these children on the Autism Spectrum age and integrate into society as young adults many also age out of pediatric dental practices and are seen in general practices. As a practicing hygienist and mother of an Autistic child the speaker has learned methods to ease the anxiety associated with dental appointments for many patients in addition to common oral conditions that may affect individuals with Special Needs.
