Speaker: Jenny Wong, DMD, MD
As advances in the field of medicine help patients with chronic diseases live longer and better lives, there is a ripple-effect in dentistry. This affects us in how we must consider these interventions and diseases in the safe management of our patients in the dental chair. In her presentation “Communicating About Medicine in Dentistry” Dr. Wong will review common, significant medical conditions and medications, and their implications in dental treatment. In addition, she will explore both patient interview techniques in eliciting critical medical information pertinent to your dental management, and strategies in writing clear, concise medical consultations to patients’ physicians. Dr. Wong is excited and gracious to be returning to the SGVDS for this evening as she is a former SGVDS member.
