Gen Z Challenges
The current and sometimes shocking health behaviors and trends in the teen generation can influence their oral and systemic health. Dental professionals have a clinical opportunity to identify risky behaviors. Encouraging Gen Z to make positive health decisions could impact their choices when challenged.
Participants may engage in a discussion on timely topics relating to Gen Z. Dialogue may include oral and overall health issues associated with nutrition, obesity and substance abuse.
Recognizing high risk behaviors will prepare the dental professional to initiate dialogue that may impact a teen for a lifetime.
If You Don’t Snooze, You Lose: Uncovering Sleep Disordered Breathing
As co-therapists in multidisciplinary treatment, dental professionals have the opportunity to play a significant role in changing the path of an individual’s life. Routine screenings are a vitally important component to any comprehensive treatment plan. Optimal patient care has expanded to include screenings we have not considered in the past. Screening for Sleep Disordered Breathing is no exception. The dental professional is in a position to provide many of these screenings. Emerging research on Sleep Disordered Breathing (SDB) and the far-reaching health effects for an individual, underscores the need to elevate our knowledge and embrace the value of our role in early discovery. Sleep Disordered Breathing is a global issue that knows no boundaries, be it socioeconomics, gender, race or age.
This course will assist the dental professional in developing the fundamental knowledge for Sleep Disordered Breathing to confidently screen, discuss, refer and help manage the SDB patient(s).
