CE Showcase Pharmacology Supporting Your Practice

CE Showcase ASM2017: Fighting Dental Disease: Drugs, Bugs and Prescription Products


My interview with Dr. Peter Jacobsen went by in a flash! His sense of humor, light-delivery approach, and lively style leaves you glued to the screen, wanting to learn more about the topic presented. Dr. Jacobsen joined me to speak about his upcoming lecture at #ASM150 titled: Fighting Dental Disease: Drugs, Bugs and Prescription Products.

Chiraz Guessaier, CDA Oasis Manager


What are the first, second, third drugs of choice for dental infections? Which antifungals have the greatest risk of drug interactions? Are OTC aphthous ulcers medications effective? Can the newest antiviral drugs prevent herpes attacks? Do they put Ginkgo Biloba in the new natural toothpastes so patients will remember to brush their teeth?

We all make decisions and recommendations. Patients constantly have questions.

This lecture will update you on a wide range of prescription and OTC dental products; the ultimate review of dental pharmacology. And, Dr. Jacobsen will deliver it in his unique, irreverent and entertaining way, while still focusing on the clinical realities of daily dental practice.
