What you’ve always wanted to know about the relationship between dentistry and medicine but were afraid to ask


While medical advances are allowing patients to live longer, dentists face the challenge of treating patients with more complex medical conditions and a taking a greater array of medications. This symposium will cover commonly encountered medical conditions and newer drugs which are particularly relevant to dentists. Experts from the Mount Sinai Hospital Department of Dentistry will provide stimulating and insightful updates on pain management, guidelines for opioid use, temporomandibular disorders and oral cancer screening in a program that bridges the gaps between medicine and dentistry. Registrants will actively participate in small group workshops dedicated to topics that include oral pathology, orofacial pain, principles in the dental management of medically complex patients.


This conference has been approved by the Royal College of Dental Surgeons of Ontario for 6 CE Credits, Category 1: Core Courses.
