Thursday Courses
Th202 - Nutrition Update for the Dental Team
Time: 8 - 10:30 AM
Room: GWCC,
Type: Registered    Handouts: Yes
Dentist Fee: $95.00  Other Fee: $65.00

Evidence directly links dietary intake, nutritional deficiencies, and oral health. While high caloric intake is an obvious factor, inadequate micronutrient intake is a growing problem. Dental professionals are uniquely situated to identify many nutritional shortcomings and frank deficiencies—however, many feel inadequately prepared to do so. This fact-filled, thought-provoking course explores the most current science and the relationship between dietary patterns, macronutrients, micronutrients, and oral health.

Learning Objectives:

  • Discuss the current evidence for micronutrient deficiencies, including at-risk populations.
  • Identify the oral presentation of key micronutrient deficiencies.
  • Describe the relationship between glycemic index/load, diabetes, and oral health.
  • Discuss the impact of dietary patterns (e.g., gluten-free, vegan, Mediterranean, etc.) on oral and overall health.
