Systemic Diseases, Oral Manifestations of These Diseases and Strategies for an Interdisciplinary Approach to Their Mangement

Course Summary:

Many systemic diseases exhibit manifestations that appear in the oral cavity. In addition, treatment of systemic diseases can impact dental treatment. Therefore, it is important for dentists to be knowledgeable about medical conditions and their treatment and how dental treatment is affected.

In situations where patients need both medical and dental treatment which affect each other, the most patient-centered care is provided by a healthcare team which includes their physicians and dentists. The Dallas area and the State of Texas have very diverse populations.

This course will describe: the demographic composition of Dallas and Texas; the prevalence of systemic diseases among those who populate these areas; treatment of these systemic diseases; oral complications resulting from the diseases and/or their treatment;   treatment of resulting dental diseases; and an interdisciplinary approach to medical and dental treatment.
