Ensuring Patient Periodontal Health for Medical Clearance and in Medically Compromised Patients
May 10th - South Shore Location (TBD)
Providing dental clearance for our patients to undergo important and sometimes life-saving medical procedures is an imperative, potentially legally fraught process. While discerning healthy and unhealthy is usually obvious, differentiating between conditions that are not healthy and maintainable and those that require immediate treatment can be less so. Learn why dental clearance is requested by our patients’ physicians, how you can routinely assess whether a patient requires dental care before their planned medical care, and how best to fulfill your role as an integral member of your patients’ medical care team.
