Medical History Front and Center: Oral Manifestations of Systemic Conditions; Thursday, September 29, 2022; 6:30 - 8:30 PM ET; 2 CEUs; Live Webinar

Completing a thorough medical history is an imperative step in the dental hygiene process of care. An examination of oral lesions that are manifestations of systemic diseases will be discussed in this course. Expand your reasoning as we look at lesions and oral changes, deciphering the systemic conditions they are evidence of. Etiology, clinical appearance, and treatment options of both common and uncommon conditions are included, emphasizing interdisciplinary collaboration with other health professionals. Hygienists with keen eyes for these lesions/changes and the conditions they are associated with can elevate both patient and employer appreciation.
