hosted the Dentistry for the Modern Age workshop

An antibiotics guideline
recently released by the ADA served as an example of a clinical practice guideline during the workshop. The guideline advises antibiotics are not needed to manage most dental pain and intraoral swelling associated with pulpal and periapical infections and helps dentists apply the latest evidence to their prescription decisions.
Participants included Dr. Cibele Nasri-Heir, an assistant professor in the Center for Temporomandibular Disorders and Orofacial Pain at Rutgers School of Dental Medicine in Newark, New Jersey, and Dr. Megan Bright, a dentist who practices at Clinica Family Health in Lafayette, Colorado.
