Antibiotics and the Periodontitis Patient: Re-examining Our Toolbox

March 26 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 PM


“Antibiotics and the Periodontitis Patient: Re-examining Our Toolbox”

Presented by Devon Lea Allison, D.D.S., Ph.D.

BCDA is pleased to welcome Doctor Devon Allison for her presentation to provide dentists and hygienists a refresher and explanation on the new AAP periodontitis classification and how we as clinicians want to view periodontitis throughout the life of a patient. No longer should you solely associate patients with rapid attachment loss and large pockets as only being “aggressive perio-dontitis”. We will also discuss systemic and localized antibiotic delivery and when you may want to consider antibiotics as an adjunctive to periodontitis treatment. Finally, we will review our current status on peri-implantitis treatment and discuss some additional treatments that are currently being marketed for at-home treatment of periodontitis.

The course will focus on the AAP 2017 World Workshop, staging and grading, when to consider specialist intervention, difference between Stage III and Stage IV and whatever happened to “aggressive periodontitis”.

Upon completion of the presentation, attendees will have knowledge of the updated Classifications of Periodontitis, patient experience types for manage-ment, antibiotics for peri-implantitis, peri-implantitis surface decontamination, managing peri-implantitis and home treatment devices.

Doctor Allison is a Dental Officer in the Office of Health Technology and Office of Product Evaluation and Quality (CDRH) of the Food and Drug Administration, while also providing periodontal treatment in a private office setting in College Park. She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology. Her educa-tion includes a B.S. degree from Ursinus College and a combined D.D.S./Ph.D. from the University of Maryland and University of Maryland School of Dentistry. Doctor Allison has an impressive combination of research and publications in her résumé.

We also welcome the officers and staff of Maryland State Dental Association to provide an update and overview of current activities on the State level.
