Diabetes and its co-morbidities remain a leading cause of death. The systemic complications of diabetes have a significant impact on dental therapy. Would you know the symptoms if you saw them? This program explores diabetes, the arsenal of medications used in its treatment and the impact of both the disease and its treatment on dental therapy. Participants will explore patient management strategies essential for successful treatment planning and proper care of our diabetic patients.
