Thomas Viola, RPh, CCP 1 CEU
“Sugar, You’re (Not So) Sweet” An Overview of Diabetes Mellitus:
Dental Considerations and Patient Care Planning
Tom Viola is one of dentistry’s most influential pharmacology experts and has presented hundreds of continuing education courses, nationally and internationally, in the areas of dental pharmacology and local anesthesia.
It is estimated that 29.1 million Americans, or 9.3% of the population, have diabetes. Of the 29.1 million, 21.0 million are diagnosed, and 8.1 million remain undiagnosed.
Diabetes remains the 7th leading cause of death in the United States. This program will provide participants with an overview of diabetes mellitus, the arsenal of medications used in its management and the impact of both the disease and its treatment on dental therapy.
Specific emphasis will be placed on recommended dental treatment modifications and patient management techniques necessary for dental patients living with diabetes.
Upon successful completion of this program, participants will be able to:
- Identify the epidemiology and types of diabetes.
- Describe the pathophysiology of diabetes and its management and treatment options.
- Describe the complex interplay of diabetes, systemic inflammation and periodontal disease.
- Explain the impact of diabetes and its treatment on dental therapy.

Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS l 1 CEU
“The New Gingivitis Code: It’s All About Inflammation!”
Your patient presents with inflamed, hemorrhagic gingiva, light to moderate subgingival calculus, light supragingival calculus on the mandibular lingual anteriors, and generalized pseudo-pocketing.
For all of the history of Current Dental Terminology (CDT) coding, there have been no truly accurate codes that can be used for the treatment this patient needs.
This changed in 2017. We can finally treat gingivitis after decades of merely dumping gingival inflammation into the same category as health. This new code can potentially close the loop and elevate our standard of care.
With increasing research pointing to the connection between oral disease and medical conditions, the timing is perfect. Early recognition ensures earlier intervention and disease prevention. This webinar addresses discovery & application of a new US dental code.
Upon completion of this evidence-based clinical course, the participant will be able to:
- Recognize and treat inflammation early
- Protect your practice against fraud
- Learn how to use the most accurate codes
- Discover new code-driven opportunities
Registration Bonus! Patti Digangi’s new book “A Gingivitis Code Finally” is the perfect prerequisite for this webinar. When you register, you will receive an $8.00 discount code towards the online purchase of this printed, pocket-sized reference resource and its eBook version as well

Our Exclusive Two-Part Webinar from the Authors of the Best-Selling Book “Beat the Heart Attack Gene”, Dr. Bradley Bale & Dr. Amy Doneen.
Long time advocates of the critical role that dental clinicians play in the prevention of heart attacks and strokes, Drs. Bale and Doneen recently co-authored an article with Dr. David Vigerust entitled “High-Risk Periodontal Pathogens Contribute to the Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis,” that will be published in the prestigious Postgraduate Medical Journal and was published online ahead of print by the British Medical Journal.
The BMJ study clearly states, “Level A evidence supports that periodontal disease is independently associated with arterial disease.” Now more than ever, dental clinicians can and should strengthen their commitment to elevating the level of patient care.”
Because of the complexity of this topic and because atherosclerosis is the largest cause of death and disability in North America, Drs. Bale and Doneen have been invited to present their findings in an exclusive, two-part Free CE webinar. The schedule is as follows:
Bradley Field Bale, M.D. l 1 CEU
“High-Risk Periodontal Pathogens Contribute to the Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis.”
According to Dr. Bale, “Periodontal disease due to high risk pathogens must be considered a contributory cause of arterial disease.” Dr. Bale will present the science which supports this landmark statement. Considering this knowledge, the dental community has a significant opportunity to favorably impact the number one cause of death and disability by effectively managing this type of periodontal disease.”
Amy Doneen, DNP, ARNP l 1 CEU
“Integrating the Science of Oral/Systemic Health into Clinical Practice.”
“It is necessary to respect the clinical context for which the information outlined in the recent BMJ study can be applied to the clinical dental arena,” explained Dr. Doneen. “What’s more, lines of communication must be created between medicine and dentistry that can clearly articulate the importance of understanding the oral pathogen burden as it relates to the vascular health of the individual patient.”
