Yankee Dental Congress

JANUARY 24 - 28, 2018

EXHIBITS: JANUARY 25 - 27, 2018



Thursday, January 25, 2018

The use of marijuana by patients offers opportunities and concerns in medical and dental care. Dentists and the dental team should be aware of treatment considerations when their patients may use marijuana. This symposium will review treatment considerations, regulation, and medical evidence related to the use of medical and recreational marijuana. Additionally, speakers will cover screening for the use of controlled substances and marijuana dispensary operations in light of the current social and regulatory climate. Changes in opinion and regulation in New England and elsewhere demonstrate a need for continuing education on this subject.
