OSAP 2016 Annual Conference - Leading the Way to the Safest Dental Visit™

TITLE    Antibiotic Resistance and Stewardship in Dentistry

This lecture describes how antibiotic resistance occurs and discusses the importance of antibiotic stewardship in the dental profession. The panel will address dentists’ knowledge and behaviors regarding antibiotic use, challenges faced and clinical tips for responsible antibiotic prescribing.
