Gingivitis cases are rising in the US, but the "old normal" preventive D1110 code is still the one most commonly used. During this interactive program on how to use the D4346 code to address active gingivitis, we will identify key indicators of reversible and irreversible gum disease, curate transitional procedures that move patients to advanced treatment, and develop verbiage to best explain inflammation, infection, and the oral-systemic link.

Diabetes mellitus is a metabolic disorder affecting an estimated 463 million people, or one in 11 adults worldwide.  As research unpacks the codependent relationship between diabetes mellitus and oral disease, dental providers become an integral aspect to the identification, counseling, and referral of at-risk patients. 

 

Join periodontal hygienist, Katrina Sanders, as she discusses dentistry’s active role in the early identification of diabetes through hemoglobin A1c [HbA1c] testing.  Learn how oral health care providers have the opportunity to strengthen a partnership with our medical colleagues through in-office HbA1c testing and counseling while enhancing multidisciplinary involvement in optimal patient care.

 

Objectives:

Explore new scientific literature indicating implications for incidence and prevalence of diabetes mellitus and oral disease
Identify the clinical provision for gathering in-office hemoglobin A1c point-of-service tests in the dental office
Discuss co-therapeutic management of diabetes mellitus and associated complications between the dental and medical provider
