Alumni Dental Professionals Gathering
Marist High School will host a networking and continuing education event for alumni and friends in the dental field on Thursday, March 22 at 6:30 p.m. Dr. Robert Bosack '70 will present:
The Medically Compromised Patient and Dental Care: Should I Be Concerned?
As expected with an aging population, many dental patients will present with serious medical co-morbidities. In some cases, patients may be unaware of their diseases / management or medical management itself may be inadequate, due to poor patient compliance or less than optimal medical care. Regardless, the dental professional is accountable for appropriate pre-treatment evaluation and for the safety of their patients during and after dental care. This presentation will review salient features of patient history and assessment, while reviewing many of the more common medical conditions that affect our patient population.
Attendees will receive Academy of General Dentistry continuing education credit. Cocktails and appetizers will be served and tours of the school will be available.
