“The Pain Epidemic of the 21st Century” // 2 hours
Pain is now considered a global health issue and may affect each and every one of us in our lifetime in one way or another. With mounting evidence demonstrating the high prevalence of pain in today’s society,
it is important to discuss the many facets of pain such as: awareness and education, assessment, treatment and mismanagement. This course has been designed to enhance the role that healthcare providers play in
providing a collaborative approach to patient centered and comprehensive care and address the opioid crisis.

“Dental Hygienist: Essential Primary Care Providers” // 2 hours
Dental hygienists are the primary preventive oral health care provider. With the education and licensure required to provide preventive and therapeutic care to the public, dental hygienists are poised to meet the needs of the public. Currently, many sources shed light on the demand and severe need for dental services that may be provided by the dental hygienist. In addition, the ever- evolving healthcare landscape, the expansion of healthcare coverage, increased research with the oral systemic link and the epidemic of inflammatory and chronic diseases are reinforcing that optimal oral health is a key component for optimal overall health. As states across the country are moving to expand the dental hygiene scope of practice, increase practice settings and introduce midlevel dental hygiene providers, the profession of dental hygiene is exploding with opportunities!
