The Dental Hygienist’s Role in Supporting Patients with Substance Use Disorder
August 6 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
With the right skills and confidence, dental hygienists can serve as the first line of defense against risky substance use. Often, hygienists are the health care professional spending the most one-on-one time with patients. Therefore, they are in a position to screen and advise patients on this issue.
This webinar will help participants:
- Identify substance use disorder as a treatable medical condition
- Recognize physical and psychological changes consistent with substance use disorder
- Practice effective communication with patients about substance use disorder
