Part 1 of this course discusses methods for managing patients who are taking anticoagulants and antiplatelet medications for exodontia procedures. It covers the phases of care: pre-op work-up workflow, surgical approach, and management of post-op complications. Other topics will include the pathophysiology of the anticoagulants warfarin. Xarelto, Pradaxa, and Eliquis; antiplatelet medications; and how these two classes of medicines differ.

Part 2 of this course will delve into considerations for managing a medically complex general dentistry patient. Common morbidities and classes of medications relative to their impacts on general dentistry procedures will be discussed. Standard medical lab testing and values to assist in safely providing care to these patients also will be reviewed through a series of case studies.
