CE 1: Drug Abuse Among the Elderly: Implications for Dental Practice
Kester F. Ng, BHSc, DDS; and Aviv Ouanounou, BSc, MSc, DDS
This first CE article discusses drug abuse among elderly patients, a dilemma that is anticipated to increase with the aging of the baby boomer generation. As the authors explain, dental clinicians must participate in the management of elderly patients who may be abusing drugs. This requires consultation and corroboration with the patient’s physician or psychiatrist, thereby enhancing the dentist’s role as a member of the patient’s overall healthcare team.

CE 2: Three Serious Drug Interactions That Every Dentist Should Know About
Elliot V. Hersh, DMD, MS, PhD; and Paul A. Moore, DMD, PhD, MPH
In this next CE article the authors identify and discuss three serious drug interactions that can impact a dental practice. These interactions involve commonly prescribed drugs in dentistry. With an aging patient population using a growing number of drugs for a variety of medical conditions, the article assists clinicians in recognizing such interactions and, in turn, providing safe treatment for their patients.
