It Takes A Village: Opioid Addiction and the Dental Professionals Role

The US Surgeon general reports that drug overdoses are the leading cause of preventable death. Diverse communities across the United States are struggling with the ramifications of drug addiction. Substance abuse and addictions are challenging and major public health concern that all medical and dental professionals should be prepared to address. This course will outline current trends of drug addiction and the life-saving efforts all professionals can participate in to address this epidemic.
Learning Objectives:
• Recognize current trends and most commonly used drugs
• Identify programs utilized in some states to save lives
• Recall the protocol for the administration and delivery of Naloxone

Afternoon Session

The Future of Diversity

Dental professionals value the role that diversity contributes to society. Diversity has evolved and includes more than race and ethnicity. Many diverse populations are underserved or overlooked. There are a number of populations that have growing evidence of health disparities. Dental professionals must prepare themselves for the future of diversity and develop strategies to provide the best patient-centered care.
Learning Objectives:

• Define diversity and its contribution to patient perception.
• Discuss unique subsets of the populations that are often overlooked.
• Identify strategies that will promote cultural and linguistically competent care
