           FIVE Patient Lifestyle Habits that SABOTAGE Healing
           Time:  8:15 - 11:15 am
           Course Code:  T 120
           Fee:  Dentists $60   All Others $25

           Quick Summary:  The oral cavity is connected to the rest of the body.  Too often, we under-estimate how our
           patients’ general health and state of mind affects the care we provide.

           Course Description:  Your patients don’t leave their stressful jobs, their insomnia, their marriages, their physical
           fitness (or lack) or their dietary patterns in the car before they sit in your chair.  There’s irrefutable scientific evi-
           dence that each of these habits has the ability to ramp up inflammation or dial it down. In this fast-paced program,
           be prepared to have your hair blown back.

           Learning Objectives: Discover how eating habits have the ability to dial down or ramp inflammation and how it
           affects your treatment outcomes.  Learn why it’s important to identify the sleep-deprived (not just apnea) patient in
           your practice.  Understand why your sedentary patients don’t heal as well as your active living patients.  ALERT:
           85% of your patients lead sedentary lives.  Gain greater insight into the relationship between chronic inflammation
           & disease.  Gain a conversation style to positively impact your patient at the new patient and re-care exam.

           Course most appropriate for:  All Attendees
           C.E. Hours:  3 clinical hours

           Complications and/or poor treatment outcomes can be attributed to these medications.  You need to know what

           tions affecting your treatment plan.  How can I minimize prescribing opioid medications for post-operative pain?

           for the most common physician-prescribed medications.

           is taking their medications.  Dental implications of common physician-prescribed medications.  How to combine
