Course Description:

  This program provides illustrative examples of orofacial findings

associated with diagnosed or subjectively silent systemic disease, medical therapy and substance abuse.

The oral cavity is readily accessible for inspection and a gateway for assessment of general health. In fact, many systemic conditions affecting organs far from the head and neck region could manifest in the orofacial region, sometimes prior to their diagnosis.
This program provides illustrative examples of orofacial findings associated with systemic disease and medical therapy. Relevant signs, symptoms and assessments are reviewed and the potential role of oral health care provider in recognition, referral, follow-up and overall management is emphasized.
This program will review the risks and signs of Opioid abuse, addiction, and diversion
