Inappropriate use of antibiotics can lead to a myriad of negative outcomes: an increase in antibiotic resistance, adverse drug reactions, increased health care costs, and serious infections and health problems for patients. Dentists and oral health teams can — and need to be — part of the solution.
Join CareQuest Institute and the American Association of Public Health Dentistry for a practical webinar on the importance and implementation of antibiotic stewardship in dentistry. Our well-known experts — including a professor of medicine and a dentist — will identify the risks of antibiotic prescribing and available tools that can aid clinicians. They’ll also discuss patient safety and show the positive changes that can occur with the appropriate level of guidance.
- Describe antibiotic prescribing by dentists in the United States.
- Identify the risks of antibiotic prescribing for dental indications and what tools are available for clinicians to aid prescribing.
- Discuss the implementation and practice of antibiotic stewardship in dentistry.
- Assess the impact of stewardship on appropriate antibiotic use and patient safety.
