Genetics in Dental Practice, Are You Ready?
Date: Tuesday, November 9, 2021
Time: 7:00 PM CST, 8 PM EST, 5 PM PST
Audience: The Dental Professional
CE Credit: 2.0 credits
With the unmasking of the human genome, our comprehension of the genetic aspects of human disease are leading to new approaches in the prevention, diagnosis and management of craniofacial, oral and dental diseases in dentistry. We are now appreciating the role that hereditary factors contribute to caries, periodontal disease, missing or supernumerary teeth, altered tooth structure, and oral cancer. Based on the expanding market of commercial personalized genetic test kits, dentists should be prepared to discuss genetic factors, testing, and susceptibility for dental disorders with their patients. This presentation will provide a foundation in genetics, resources, genetic disorders and the application of gene wide association studies in the dental practice.
At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
- Update on genetic competencies and family histories
- Understanding the principles of dental genetic disorders and utilization of genetic resources
- Basic understanding of gene wide association studies and their application to dentistry
