General Information

Eligibility

Continuing Dental Education (CDE) courses are open to IHS, Tribal, Urban, and Contract dental personnel. Some courses require completion of a prerequisite course. This is noted on the Course Detail page of each catalog offering. For example, dental assistants may not enroll in the Restorative Expanded Functions-Advanced course unless they have successfully completed the Restorative Expanded Functions-Basic course.

Before Selecting Your CDE Courses

Before selecting a CDE course, you must complete an Individual Development Plan (IDP) with a supervisor. The IDP identifies training needs that would be most appropriate for an employee and the dental program for which he / she works. If you have not already completed an IDP with your supervisor, you can find a copy of the form by going to the Dental CDE Website at the following address:

http://www.doh.ihs.gov

To Locate the form, follow these steps:

  1. Click the "Please Login" link near the top of the page.
  2. Once you are logged in, click the "CDE” tab on the left side of the page.
  3. On the CDE website, click the "My CDE” tab on the left side of the page.
  4. Then on the right side of the “My CDE” page, click the "IndividualDevelopmentPlan.doc" link under “Forms.”
  5. Download the IDP form, print it out and complete the form with your supervisor.

Selecting Your CDE Courses

Once you have completed your IDP, you may select your courses. For the current fiscal year, you may choose a maximum of three courses by following these steps:

  1. Click the “Catalog” tab in the main navigation on the left side of the CDE website.
  2. Scroll as needed to find a course of interest.
  3. Click the Course Number to go to the Course Detail page.
  4. If this is a course that you wish to select, click the “Select Course” button.

Supervisor Approval of Your Course Selections

After you have selected all your courses, you are ready to process the selections by 1) prioritizing selections and 2) confirming priorities. Both these steps must be completed before sending the request to your supervisor. The CDE system uses the priorities you set here to register you in your most wanted course. Once you confirm your priorities, the CDE system sends an email to your supervisor requesting approval. To begin the Supervisor Approval process, click the “Request Approval” button on the right side of any Course Detail page.

Once your request is sent, you can track the status of your request using the "My CDE" page.

Help is Available

If you are using the CDE website for the first time, ask one of your co-workers or your supervisor for assistance. If you have forgotten your username or password, click on the “Forgot Password” link on the Login page. If you wish to confirm that you have made your selections correctly before the lottery, you can contact Marybeth.kinney@comcast.net for assistance. If you prefer to speak to someone by phone, call 602-364-7747 and ask your question on a voicemail. Leave your name and phone number as well as convenient times to call you.

Lottery

A computerized lottery is used to register participants into courses. This gives everyone an equal opportunity to attend at least one course. The selection period for FY 2012 is October 3, 2011 - October 31, 2011. Please be sure that your CDE supervisor has approved your selections on the website before the end date because the lottery will be run on November 1, 2011.

Results of the Lottery

An automated email will be sent to you and your supervisor with the results of the lottery. If you do not receive an email with your results, login to the website and see your results under "My CDE."

The results of the lottery will be available on www.doh.ihs.gov on November 8, 2010.

Update Your Dental Directory Listing

If you do not receive an automated email, that is an indication that your email address is listed incorrectly in the online Dental Directory. Please make corrections to the Dental Directory by following these steps:

  1. Login to the Dental Portal (http://www.doh.ihs.gov).
  2. Your Directory Listing is shown in the upper right corner of the page.
    Note: If you do not see a section entitled “Your Directory Listing”, you are not logged into the Dental Directory; please click the “Login Help” tab on the left side of the page for help logging on.
  3. Make changes to the information as needed by clicking "update your directory listing."

It is important that your email address be correct in the Dental Directory since emails may be sent to advise you of course changes, course cancellations, and course assignments.

Confirming Your Attendance

Due to the extremely high demand for CDE courses, and the need to utilize resources efficiently, confirmation or cancellation of course attendance is required. When you are registered for a course, the status on that course will read “Registered” on the “My CDE” page. You can update the “Status” of your attendance at any time by clicking on the word “Registered” and indicating “Attending” or “Not-Attending.” If you have not confirmed attendance, the message “Please Confirm Your Attendance” will appear in red under the Course Title on the “My CDE” page twelve weeks before the course is due to start. Follow these steps to confirm attendance:

  1. On the "My CDE" page, click the message “Please Confirm Your Attendance.”
  2. Select a new status from the list provided and enter an appropriate comment.
    Note: If you select "Not Attending," your space in the class will be lost and filled with the first available waitlisted individual.
  3. Click the "Submit" button to finalize the change.

The Course Director will request that you re-confirm your attendance to him / her in writing after you have received your confirmation letter. If registered participants fail to confirm their intention to attend a course at least seven (7) weeks prior to the course start date, they will lose their training opportunity. Their places in a course will be offered to people on the waiting list.

Paying Your Tuition

Tuition is not charged for dental personnel working at IHS federal programs. Tuition will be charged for dental personnel working at Tribal dental programs that have taken their Headquarter dental shares.

If you are charged tuition, then it must be paid eight (8) weeks before the start date of a course. You pay tuition by check or money order made payable as directed in the catalog and in the course confirmation letter you receive.

"In Your Clinic" and "By Request" courses have associated costs for travel, per diem, lodging, salary, and honorarium for instructors. These costs will be charged to all IHS, Tribal, and Urban dental programs. Contact the Course Director to schedule a course and negotiate fees.

Travel & Lodging Information

Course participants are responsible for confirming attendance in a course, making travel and lodging arrangements, obtaining necessary travel documents, and ensuring that clinic schedules are arranged to allow for participants' absence.

Eight (8) to twelve (12) weeks before the start of a course, the Course Director will mail out information on lodging, special instructions regarding travel, uniform of the day, and the phone number of someone to contact to answer questions.

Another way to check travel and lodging information for a course is through the CDE website. Once you go to www.doh.ihs.gov and login, go to the CDE site and click on the course for which you are registered and scroll down on the Course Detail to the travel section. Some course directors will post the course confirmation letter on the CDE website under “Course Materials” which is under “Tools.”

CDE Certificates

Course participants can view and print transcripts through the CDE system. A transcript lists the courses you have completed and the number of CDE credits earned since FY 2002. The transcript will be automatically updated when you complete courses in FY 2011.

Course participants are encouraged, upon their return to their worksite, to discuss course content with their supervisor and co-workers, and share what was learned and whether the course would be appropriate for other staff to attend.

Accreditation

The IHS Division of Oral Health is an American Dental Association (ADA) Continuing Education Recognition Program (CERP) Recognized Provider. In order to receive credit, participants must attend all sessions of a course. Evening sessions or pre-course work may be scheduled at the discretion of the course instructor, and will be announced at the beginning of the course.

Summary:

Today in America, addiction is a public health crisis. The opioid epidemic and substance use disorders more broadly have become one of the most common chronic illnesses in the U.S. In 2016, more than 115 Americans die from an opioid overdose. The misuse of and addiction to opioids—including prescription pain relievers, heroin, and synthetic opioids such as fentanyl—is a serious national crisis that affects public health as well as social and economic welfare.

In 2015, nearly 21 million Americans – more than the number of people who have all cancers combined – suffer from a substance use disorder involving alcohol or drugs – but only 1 in 10 receives treatment. One in 7 people in the U.S. is expected to develop a substance use disorder at some point in lives.

The Office of the Surgeon General released the first ever Surgeon General’s report on Substance Use and Addiction in November 2016. Facing Addiction in America: The Surgeon General’s Report on Alcohol, Drugs, and Health addresses alcohol, illicit drugs, and prescription drug misuse, with chapters dedicated to neurobiology, prevention, treatment, recovery, health systems integration and recommendations for the future. It provides an in-depth look at the science of substance use disorders and addiction, calls for a cultural shift in the way Americans talk about the issue, and recommends actions we can take to prevent and treat these conditions, and promote recovery.

In 2018, the Office of the Surgeon General released a public health advisory to urge more Americans to carry a lifesaving medication, naloxone, which can reverse the effects of an opioid overdose. Additional help and resources are available.

In 2018, The Surgeon General released Facing Addiction in America: Spotlight on Opioids to provide opioid-relevant information for the 2016 Surgeon General’s Report. The Surgeon General’s opioid postcard has 5 actions every person can take to stem the opioid epidemic. For more opioid resources, go to hhs.gov/opioids.

This course is open to all USPHS dentists. The weblink will be sent out via the listserv.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Recognize signs of an opioid overdose, as compared to other medical emergencies;
2. Administer an opioid reversal agent and provide assistance until emergency medical team responds; and
3. Understand the role of dental staff in immediately responding to opioid overdoses.

Summary:

Please read this section carefully! If you are waitlisted for this course, you are encouraged to register for another course in addition to this one.

The periodontal EFDA course is designed to teach dental assistants to provide dental cleanings to remove visible calculus by using state-of-the art Piezoelectric scalers or Magnetostrictive ultrasonic scalers. Hand scaling is no longer a part of the periodontal EFDA curriculum.

Pre-Course Requirements:

1. All DAs registered in this course must complete the prerequisite course, DA0001, at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the course. Failure to do so may result in removal from the course by the course director.
2. All DAs registered in this course should be prepared to take the course. If you feel that you need additional preparation prior to the course, please work with your dental director.
3. All DAs and course instructors participating in this course must comply fully with IHS COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Failure to comply will result in removal from the course by the course director.

During the Course:
1. Participants are expected to pass a series of didactic [lecture] and clinical examinations to show proficiency in course content. This includes clinical work with typodonts and with real patients.
2. At the conclusion of the weeklong course, the course director will provide participants with a completion code. The DA will then have 3 days to complete the online post-course evaluation and get CDE credit. Failure to get CDE credit will result in non-certification down the road, so it is important to do this right away!

Post-Course Requirements:
1. DAs must complete 20 dental cleanings which are checked and scored by the hygienist/dentist at their home dental clinic. These should be done under direct supervision of the dentist or hygienist [dentist/hygienist in the room while the DA is performing the cleaning, able to provide tips and recommendations as needed]. Grading is documented on the Follow-Up Training Progress Record provided by the course director, which is then maintained at the local program.
2. Post-course requirements must be completed within 6 months of the EFDA training.
3. When the DA has satisfactorily completed the post-course cleanings, the dental chief/director under whose license the DA will be working should then e-mail the IHS EFDA Coordinator [IHSEFDA@ihs.gov] to inform them that post-course requirements have been met and that the record is on file at the local clinic. This should be done using this format only: "_______________________ [name of DA] has satisfactorily completed the post-course requirements as a periodontal EFDA. He/she took course ____ [course number] on ______ [date] at ______________ [location]. A copy of his/her evaluation form is being maintained in this office. Please issue instructions for certification.”
4. Once this is done, the IHS EFDA Coordinator will provide the student with instructions on how to receive their CDE certificate and their EFDA certificate.
5. After the 20 cleanings done under direct supervision by the dentist/hygienist, the DA should NOT perform any further cleanings unless CERTIFIED by the IHS EFDA Coordinator. Following certification, the new EFDA may perform cleanings under indirect supervision [dentist/hygienist in the facility but not directly overseeing the work until a final check is needed].

Technical background information is presented in cavity classification and dental anatomy. Class I, II, & V amalgam restorations, and Class III & V composite restorations are covered in lecture and laboratory exercises. Other written and practical examinations are used to measure participant progress. The basic course has been organized for those dental assistants with limited or no training and/or experience in the placement of restorative materials. It is only practical for those clinics where the ratio of dentists to dental assistants allows the practice of expanded restorative functions.

Pre-Course Requirements:

1. All DAs registered in this course must complete the prerequisite course, DA0004, at least 2 weeks prior to the start of the course. Failure to do so may result in removal from the course by the course director.
2. All DAs registered in this course should be prepared to take the course. If you feel that you need additional preparation prior to the course, please work with your dental director.
3. All DAs and course instructors participating in this course must comply fully with IHS COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Failure to comply will result in removal from the course by the course director.

During the Course:
1. Participants are expected to pass a series of didactic [lecture] and clinical examinations to show proficiency in course content. This does not include clinical work with real patients.
2. At the conclusion of the weeklong course, the course director will provide participants with a completion code. The DA will then have 3 days to complete the online post-course evaluation and get CDE credit. Failure to get CDE credit will result in non-certification down the road, so it is important to do this right away!

Post-Course Requirements:
1. DAs must complete 40 restorations as specified in the Progress Record which are checked and scored by the dentist at their home dental clinic. These should be done under direct supervision of the dentist [dentist in the room while the DA is performing the restoration, able to provide tips and recommendations as needed]. Grading is documented on the Follow-Up Training Progress Record provided by the course director, which is then maintained at the local program.
2. Post-course requirements must be completed within 6 months of the EFDA training.
3. When the DA has satisfactorily completed the post-course cleanings, the dental chief/director under whose license the DA will be working should then e-mail the IHS EFDA Coordinator [IHSEFDA@ihs.gov] to inform them that post-course requirements have been met and that the record is on file at the local clinic. This should be done using this format only: "_______________________ [name of DA] has satisfactorily completed the post-course requirements as a Restorative BASIC EFDA. He/she took course ____ [course number] on ______ [date] at ______________ [location]. A copy of his/her evaluation form is being maintained in this office. Please issue instructions for certification.”
4. Once this is done, the IHS EFDA Coordinator will provide the student with instructions on how to receive their CDE certificate and their EFDA certificate.
5. After the 40 restorations are done under direct supervision by the dentist, the DA should NOT perform any further restorations unless CERTIFIED by the IHS EFDA Coordinator. Following certification, the new EFDA may perform restorations under indirect supervision [dentist in the facility but not directly overseeing the work until a final check is needed].

Annual Competency:
1. The Dental Director/Dental Chief is encouraged to complete an annual competency evaluation on the Restorative BASIC EFDA to ensure high quality care is being delivered.
2. The annual competency evaluation can be found on the IHS Dental Portal under the Clinic Tab - Competencies.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Describe tooth morphology and structure and the materials used to restore them.
2. Place and finish basic amalgam and composite restorations.
3. Discriminate between what is an acceptable and an unacceptable restoration.

Anterior composites will include both Class III and Class IV restorations taught in didactic and laboratory settings. Posterior composites will include Class I, Class II, and Class V restorations taught in didactic and laboratory settings. This one-week course is designed to provide basic skills to perform these restorations.

Pre-Course Requirements:

1. All DAs registered in this course must have completed - and been certified [completed post-course requirements] - as a Restorative BASIC EFDA, and must have been practicing/certified as a Restorative BASIC EFDA for at least one year prior to taking this course. You do NOT have to be certified as a Restorative ADVANCED EFDA to take this course.
2. All DAs registered in this course should be prepared to take the course. If you feel that you need additional preparation prior to the course, please work with your dental director. You are NOT required to retake the Restorative Prerequisite Course to take this course, but you may do so if you would like to refresh your knowledge.
3. All DAs and course instructors participating in this course must comply fully with IHS COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Failure to comply will result in removal from the course by the course director.

During the Course:
1. Participants are expected to pass a series of didactic [lecture] and clinical examinations to show proficiency in course content. This does not include clinical work with real patients.
2. At the conclusion of the weeklong course, the course director will provide participants with a completion code. The DA will then have 3 days to complete the online post-course evaluation and get CDE credit. Failure to get CDE credit will result in non-certification down the road, so it is important to do this right away!

Post-Course Requirements:
1. DAs must complete 40 composite restorations as specified in the Progress Record which are checked and scored by the dentist at their home dental clinic. These should be done under direct supervision of the dentist [dentist in the room while the DA is performing the restoration, able to provide tips and recommendations as needed]. Grading is documented on the Follow-Up Training Progress Record provided by the course director, which is then maintained at the local program.
2. Post-course requirements must be completed within 6 months of the EFDA training.
3. When the DA has satisfactorily completed the post-course cleanings, the dental chief/director under whose license the DA will be working should then e-mail the IHS EFDA Coordinator [IHSEFDA@ihs.gov] to inform them that post-course requirements have been met and that the record is on file at the local clinic. This should be done using this format only: "_______________________ [name of DA] has satisfactorily completed the post-course requirements as a Restorative COMPOSITE-ONLY EFDA. He/she took course ____ [course number] on ______ [date] at ______________ [location]. A copy of his/her evaluation form is being maintained in this office. Please issue instructions for certification.”
4. Once this is done, the IHS EFDA Coordinator will provide the student with instructions on how to receive their CDE certificate and their EFDA certificate.
5. After the 10 restorations are done under direct supervision by the dentist, the DA should NOT perform any further composite restorations taught in this course unless CERTIFIED by the IHS EFDA Coordinator. Following certification, the new Composite-Only Restorative EFDA may perform advanced composite restorations under indirect supervision [dentist in the facility but not directly overseeing the work until a final check is needed].

Annual Competency:
1. The Dental Director/Dental Chief is encouraged to complete an annual competency evaluation on the Restorative Composite-Only EFDA to ensure high quality care is being delivered.
2. The annual competency evaluation can be found on the IHS Dental Portal under the Clinic Tab - Competencies.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Have an understanding of the basic concepts of occlusion as they apply to restorative dentistry.
2. Be able to place and finish complex Class II amalgam restorations and composite restorations involving the incisal angle.
3. Have an understanding of the current state-of-the-art in dentinal bonding agents.
4. Have the ability to discriminate between acceptable and unacceptable restorations

Hours: 32.00 (Total CDE); 16.00 (DANB Clinical); 16.00 (DANB Non-Clinical); 32.00 (AGD - 250)
Course Types Course Types Course Types
Summary:

Please read this section carefully! If you are waitlisted for this course, you are encouraged to register for another course in addition to this one.

The advanced course builds upon the restorative basic course. All five-cavity classifications/preparations will be covered in lecture and laboratory exercises, including amalgam and composite restorations. Lectures will review and update course participants on dental restorative materials including a discussion of bonding agents. Laboratory exercises will be performed on typodonts beginning with conservative preparations and working up to and including cusp-protected amalgam and incisal angle composite resin restorations. Also, participants will be introduced to the basics of occlusion.

Pre-Course Requirements:

1. All DAs registered in this course must have completed - and been certified [completed post-course requirements] - as a Restorative BASIC EFDA, and must have been practicing as a Restorative BASIC EFDA for at least one year prior to taking this course.
2. All DAs registered in this course should be prepared to take the course. If you feel that you need additional preparation prior to the course, please work with your dental director. You are NOT required to retake the Restorative Prerequisite Course to take this course, but you may do so if you would like to refresh your knowledge.
3. All DAs and course instructors participating in this course must comply fully with IHS COVID-19 vaccination requirements. Failure to comply will result in removal from the course by the course director.

During the Course:
1. Participants are expected to pass a series of didactic [lecture] and clinical examinations to show proficiency in course content. This does not include clinical work with real patients.
2. At the conclusion of the weeklong course, the course director will provide participants with a completion code. The DA will then have 3 days to complete the online post-course evaluation and get CDE credit. Failure to get CDE credit will result in non-certification down the road, so it is important to do this right away!

Post-Course Requirements:
1. DAs must complete 10 restorations as specified in the Progress Record [5 cusp-protected amalgams and 5 incisal angle [Class IV] composite restorations, which are checked and scored by the dentist at their home dental clinic. These should be done under direct supervision of the dentist [dentist in the room while the DA is performing the restoration, able to provide tips and recommendations as needed]. Grading is documented on the Follow-Up Training Progress Record provided by the course director, which is then maintained at the local program.
2. Post-course requirements must be completed within 6 months of the EFDA training.
3. When the DA has satisfactorily completed the post-course cleanings, the dental chief/director under whose license the DA will be working should then e-mail the IHS EFDA Coordinator [IHSEFDA@ihs.gov] to inform them that post-course requirements have been met and that the record is on file at the local clinic. This should be done using this format only: "_______________________ [name of DA] has satisfactorily completed the post-course requirements as a Restorative ADVANCED EFDA. He/she took course ____ [course number] on ______ [date] at ______________ [location]. A copy of his/her evaluation form is being maintained in this office. Please issue instructions for certification.”
4. Once this is done, the IHS EFDA Coordinator will provide the student with instructions on how to receive their CDE certificate and their EFDA certificate.
5. After the 10 restorations are done under direct supervision by the dentist, the DA should NOT perform any further advanced [CPA, Class IV] restorations unless CERTIFIED by the IHS EFDA Coordinator. Following certification, the new Advanced EFDA may perform advanced restorations under indirect supervision [dentist in the facility but not directly overseeing the work until a final check is needed].

Annual Competency:
1. The Dental Director/Dental Chief is encouraged to complete an annual competency evaluation on the Restorative ADVANCED EFDA to ensure high quality care is being delivered.
2. The annual competency evaluation can be found on the IHS Dental Portal under the Clinic Tab - Competencies.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
1. Have an understanding of the basic concepts of occlusion as they apply to restorative dentistry.
2. Be able to place and finish complex Class II amalgam restorations and composite restorations involving the incisal angle.
3. Have an understanding of the current state-of-the-art in dentinal bonding agents.
4. Have the ability to discriminate between acceptable and unacceptable restorations

    Course Types
    Summary:

    COURSE UPDATED 6/2/2020.

    The HHS Office of Minority Health [OMH] developed a cultural competency [now called cultural humility] program for oral health professionals. Think Cultural Health includes three two-hour online modules for a total of six hours of continuing dental education. This program is built upon the National Standards on Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services in Health and Health Care [the National CLAS Standards]. The National CLAS Standards offer a framework for individuals working in health and health care on which to build policy, programs and services.

    The three courses introduce you to the fundamentals of cultural and linguistic competency and its relevance to oral health care. The courses were designed to be taken sequentially. To receive continuing dental education credit for a specific course, you will need to complete it in its entirety and obtain a minimum passing score 70 on the posttest included at the end of the course. CDE is offered not through IHS [there is no corresponding IHS course], but through OMH. When you have completed and passed the posttest for all three courses, you will have the option of printing a printer-friendly version of the course content from the Resources section under the Toolkit.

    This program introduces cultural and linguistic competency skills you can use in your day-to-day practice. These skills and concepts are reinforced through features such as:

    · The "Filling in the Gaps" boxes designed to provide you with additional information, resources and applications of the course material;

    · "Think About It" questions to encourage your reflection on the information;

    · "Cultural Connections" boxes designed to provide you with additional, culturally specific information about issues related to oral health; and

    · Video vignettes that show you how to adopt the skills and concepts into your own environment.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, the participant will be able to:

    1. Expand your patient base by providing more culturally and linguistically appropriate care to a wider diversity of patients;
    2. Deliver a higher quality of care to help your patients meet their oral health care goals, while honoring and respecting their cultural beliefs and practices;
    3. Decrease clinical errors that may arise due to cultural and linguistic differences in communication and differences in oral health literacy;
    4. Gain essential tools to help recognize and lessen the racial and ethnic health care disparities that persist in oral health.

    Summary:

    This is a recording of the live training offered on 7/11/18.

    From July to December this year, the Indian Health Service will be once again asking IHS, tribal, and urban dental programs to conduct an oral health survey of AI/AN children aged 1-5 years. We last surveyed 1-5 year-old AI/AN children in 2010 and 2014, and what we found from these surveys was that AI/AN children suffer more from tooth decay than other populations in the U.S., that early prevention before the age of two is critical, and that sealants on primary molars are underutilized. The purpose of these surveys is to monitor the burden of oral disease and use of the oral health care delivery system. We will have over a hundred programs around the country who will assess oral health status of AI/AN children, and this information can be used at the local, Area, and national level to show disparities that in turn can help programs prioritize and allocate resources to address those disparities.

    We are asking you and your clinic to participate in the upcoming survey. This means that you will screen a set number of 1-, 2-, 3-, 4-, and 5-year old children in non-dental clinic settings such as well-child, WIC, Early Head Start, Head Start, tribal preschool programs, and kindergarten. The number of children to screen is based on the size of your user population - the smaller the user population, the fewer children to screen.




    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    1. Describe the purpose of the IHS Oral Health Surveillance Program;
    2. Describe the sampling methodology behind this year's surveillance; and
    3. Conduct oral health surveys on 1-5 year-old AI/AN children

    Summary:

    Tooth decay, type 2 diabetes, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, and cardiovascular disease rates have been increasing. And excessive sugar consumption explains all four.

    It's a popular misconception that glucose can cause cavities. Not true; glucose polymerizes on the teeth and forms a "biofilm" which actually protects the tooth from decay. This is why cavemen didn't get cavities. Fructose doesn't contribute to the mouth biofilm. It is metabolized by the mouth bacteria into lactic acid, which burns a whole right through the biofilm and through the tooth.

    Glucose also doesn't cause NAFLD or CVD. Only 20 of the glucose consumed finds
    its way to the liver, and the overwhelming majority of that glucose is turned into glycogen [liver starch], which is not dangerous. It's the fructose moiety of the sugar molecule that causes both diseases. Fructose gets turned into fat in the mitochondria, which drives NAFLD and insulin resistance, which leads to type 2 diabetes and heart disease.

    Physicians and dentists must be united in supporting public health measures to reduce chronic disease.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants should be able to:
    1. Describe the differences between fructose and glucose on metabolism;
    2. Explain the similarities between the effects of sugar on tooth decay and on liver pathology, and on cardiovascular disease; and
    3. determine the effects of sugar restriction on both oral and systemic disease.

    Summary:

    The Healthy People initiative is a program of national health objectives set by the US Department of Health and Human Services for each decade. The Healthy People initiative emerged in the United States following the creation of the World Health Organization in 1948 and the Lalonde Report in Canada in 1974. The initial report, Healthy People: The Surgeon General’s Report on Health Promotion and Disease Prevention [US Department of Health, Education, and Welfare 1979, cited under Through the Years], was released in 1979 and set national health objectives to be achieved by 1990, and the scope and range of objectives to promote health in the United States have been update and expanded each decade since then. It now sets the health promotion and disease prevention agenda for the nation. In the IHS, we use Healthy People to frame much of the work we do, including our oral health surveillance program, oral health promotion/disease prevention initiatives, and almost every IHS national oral health initiative over the past three decades. This is the “30,000 foot” view of all prevention activities!

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this live webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.   Describe the origins of the Healthy People initiative;
    2.   Outline the development and implementation of the Healthy People initiative;
    3.   Compare Healthy People 2020 to Healthy People 2030 in relation to oral health objectives; and
    4.   Explain, in general terms, efforts that the IHS has implemented to monitor and align with Healthy People 2020 goals.

    Summary:

    During the first trimester of pregnancy, the breasts begin producing colostrum in small amounts, and at the time of the baby’s birth, more colostrum is being produced by the breasts than the baby will need. However, some fear that the baby ‘won’t get enough’ or that the ‘milk won’t come in,’ and want to express colostrum before the baby is born. This session will present information on the collection of colostrum prenatally especially when it is necessary as an alternative to formula when lactogenesis is delayed due to obesity and diabetes.

    The recording of the live webinar on 6/11/19 will be available on the Division of Diabetes web site for three years. The live and recorded sessions of our trainings are all available at the following https://www.ihs.gov/diabetes/training/cmece-online-edu/diabetes-online-cme-ce-education/

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
    1.Describe the safety and efficacy of collecting colostrum prenatally to be used in the immediate postpartum to avoid low blood sugar and dehydration in the newborn.   
    2.Affect clinical practice to reduce or eliminate the use of formula for breastfeeding mothers with delayed lactogenesis.
    3. Clarify the practice of avoiding formula use in the first postpartum days.

A new classification system emerged from the 2017 World Workshop on the Classification of Periodontal and Peri-Implant Diseases and Conditions, co-hosted by the American Academy of Periodontology [AAP] and the European Federation of Periodontology [EFP]. The workshop's classification changes are the first since 1999. This new system covers many factors in order to enable clinicians to form a complete picture of the patient's condition and to diagnose and manage it.

    The new classification system identifies three types of periodontal diseases and conditions along with several important subcategories:
    1. Periodontal Health, Gingival Diseases and Conditions: This category includes periodontal and gingival health, gingivitis related to dental biofilm and gingival diseases/conditions not related to biofilm.
    2. Periodontitis: This classification encompasses necrotizing periodontal diseases, periodontitis [no longer identified as chronic or aggressive] and periodontitis as a manifestation of systemic diseases.
    3. Other Conditions Affecting the Periodontium: These conditions include systemic diseases affecting the periodontium, periodontal abscesses or endodontic-periodontal lesions, mucogingival deformities and conditions, traumatic occlusal forces, and tooth and prosthesis-related factors.

    Details on this new periodontal classification system will be presented in this quarterly webinar for dentists and dental hygienists working in U.S. Public Health Service agencies and operating divisions [IHS, BOP, USCG, IHSC, FDA, NIH, CDC, HRSA]. The live webinar will be available on January 29, 2020 from 1:00 - 2:00 Eastern Time, and the Adobe Connect information will be sent out via the listserv. Due to limits on the Adobe account, only the first 100 participants will be able to join the live webinar, so we encourage clinics to call in with all staff on one line. A recording of this webinar will be released for those unable to sign in/call in for the live session.

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
    1. Describe the differences between the old and new periodontal classification systems;
    2.    Determine the correct stage and grade of periodontitis; and

    Course Types Course Types
    Summary:

    This recorded webinar from 1/15/20 will provide the purpose and procedures for using the new IHS Oral Health Status [OHS] Metric.

    Presenter: Pat Tandon
    Dentrix Instructor and Trainer since 1999. Certified for IHS, Enterprise Commercial and DOD. Graduated with engineering degree and manage a Support company in South Florida that provides technical services to the Healthcare marketplace. MCSE and Microsoft curriculum trainer. Trainer of the Year 2009, Instructor of the Year 2011 and Enterprise Trainer of the Year 2017.

    Agenda:
    1.   Definition and importance of the IHS Oral Health Status Metric available in V8.0.9
    •   The goals of the IHS OHS metric and report include
    i.   Identify patients at risk of disease
    ii.   A way to meaningfully classify patient’s current oral health to determine oral health needs [preventive care to urgent care].
    iii.   The means by which excellent patient oral health care may be profoundly impacted through effective tracking of care needs.
    Specifically -
    •   Metric is designed to provide a standardized, automated calculation of an overall oral health status score for each patient, while having minimal impact for providers regarding their clinical workflow.
    •   OHS Classification score is based on provider data entry of four objective, standardized oral health parameters
    •   Classification score is reflected on the OHS Report

    2.   Classification Score Parameters
    •   Caries; both number of active carious lesions as well as maximum depth of carious lesion[s]
    •   Soft tissue evaluation / condition [oral cancer, indication for biopsy, etc.]
    •   Periodontal disease.
    •   Presence of abscessed teeth
    i.   The OHS data entry also allows the provider to identify the need for urgent care to address conditions not directly related to these four specific parameters [i.e. lost/failed restoration[s] without associated carious lesions, etc.]

    3.   Risk Factors [not considered in the actual OHS Classification matrix calculation but available to record]
    •   Caries Risk
    •   Smoking
    •   Diabetes
    •   Dry Mouth

    4.   There are four [current] IHS Oral Health Status classifications and expiration [after two years of no recorded OHS update]
    •   OHS 1: Excellent [no dental treatment required]
    •   OHS 2: Moderate-Good [moderate dental treatment needs]
    •   OHS 3: Compromised [Urgent dental treatment indicated]
    •   OHS 4: Poor [Very Urgent dental treatment indicated]
    •   OHS 5: Patient who was previously scored as OHS 4 but has not been seen within the 24-month time range.
    •   OHS 6: At 25 months without being seen, patient becomes an OHS 6 which reflects the oral health status as “unknown”.

    5.   Detailed walk through of OHS Data Collection Process: live presentation of three separate patients/scenarios, completing the pop-up OHS metric’s data entry dialog window in Dentrix Enterprise software.
    •   Scenario 1 will display completion of a patient’s OHS metric revealing poor oral health in need of immediate urgent care.
    •   Scenario 2 will display completion of a patient’s OHS metric revealing good oral health with moderate treatment needs.
    •   Scenario 3 will display completion of an OHS metric in the situation where a patient has a previous OHS entry.

    6.   Oral Health Status Report [will pull data from the three patient entries demonstrated]
    •   Parameters available and description of their use in the report.
    •   Of what significance is the report data in providing better care for the IHS site’s patients?


    Note: The IHS OHS Metric Tool is controlled by a “Global Setting” in the Dentrix Enterprise EDR Program. This setting is in place and active by default in both new installations, and in V8.0.9 upgrade installations.


    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants will be able to:

    1.   Define the purpose of IHS OHS metric and data entry process
    2.   Understand how to effectively incorporate the OHS metric uses into their clinical workflow
    3.   Understand the data entry fields in the OHS metric reports and effectively use the outcome information to reduce / prevent dental emergencies and provide preventive care to reduce risks of disease.

    Agenda:
    1.   Quick Review of the IHS Oral Health Status Metric available in V8.0.9
    •   Metric is designed to provide a standardized, automated calculation of an overall oral health status score for each patient and will define at risk patients.
    •   OHS Classification score is based on provider data entry of four objective, standardized oral health parameters.
    i.   Caries; both number of active carious lesions as well as maximum depth of carious lesion[s]
    ii.   Soft tissue evaluation / condition [oral cancer, indication for biopsy, etc.]
    iii.   Periodontal disease.
    iv.   Presence of abscessed teeth
    1.   The OHS data entry also allows the provider to identify the need for urgent care to address conditions not directly related to these four specific parameters [i.e. lost/failed restoration[s] without associated carious lesions, etc.]
    •   Classification score is reflected on the OHS Statistics Report.
    i.   OHS 1: Excellent [no dental treatment required]
    ii.   OHS 2: Moderate-Good [moderate dental treatment needs]
    iii.   OHS 3: Compromised [Urgent dental treatment indicated]
    iv.   OHS 4: Poor [Very Urgent dental treatment indicated]
    v.   OHS 5: Patient who was previously scored as OHS 4 but has not had an OHS update within the 24-month time range. After another 12 months of no OHS update, become OHS [Classification] 6.
    vi.   OHS 6: Previous Class 1-3: At 25 months without OHS update, patient becomes an OHS 6 which reflects the oral health status as “unknown”.

    2.   Completion of the OHS Metric data entry has minimal impact on the Clinical workflow in the EDR.
    •   Use of quick Clinical Note “Template” to generate an OHS Data Entry
    i.   When the OHS Data Entry “Template” clinical note is signed the OHS metric data entry dialogue box auto launches for completion
    ii.   OHS ‘meter’ can be used as a patient education / motivation tool
    iii.   Demonstrate single-page OHS data collection document

    3.   DXOne Oral Health Status Report
    •   Parameters available and description of their use in the report.

    Summary:

    Breastfeeding is an evidence based early intervention for reducing risk for obesity and diabetes. The hospital/medical culture of supplementation can and does affect the length of exclusive breastfeeding and ultimately the infant’s future health status. Early problems with breastfeeding cause about half of mothers to abandon breastfeeding in the first postpartum weeks. This session will provide information on multiple, simple ways that obstetricians, midwives, nursing and other staff can support the normal process of breast feeding. The IHS promotes and tracks breastfeeding via efforts such as the Baby Friendly Hospital Initiative, the Diabetes Treatment and Prevention Program Best Practices, and GPRA.


    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
    1.   Describe the importance of exclusive breastfeeding for both mother and baby.
    2.   Alter practice routines that interfere with the natural process of breastfeeding in order to support a more optimal breastfeeding duration.
    3.   Enhance and improve advice and support to new mothers to help prevent early problems.

    Course Types Course Types
    Summary:

    This one-hour webinar, which was originally offered on June 24, 2020 and co-sponsored by the IHS Field Advisory Committee [FAC], offers an overview and clinical implications of Medication Related Osteonecrosis of the Jaw [MRONJ]. Case presentations will be included in the presentation. MRONJ is a disease process that is relatively new to our profession, which is caused by medications prescribed in our patient populations. These medications are prescribed to treat conditions such as osteoporosis to prevent fractures and cancer. We are still learning more about the extent of this disease process. This webinar will discuss the medications of concern, the disease process, pre-operative management of patients on these medications, surgical management of MRONJ [case presentation], and the future of non-surgical treatment and prevention.

    FOLLOW-UP QUESTION:
    "Could you please explain the process of hyperbaric dive?"

    The process of Hyperbaric Oxygen [HBO] Dives can be quite cumbersome for the patient and take a ton of time. Typically, in dentistry, we use this to prevent Radiation Osteonecrosis or to treat soft tissue defects. Marx protocol is 30 pre-op dives and 10 post-op dives at 2.4 atmospheres of pressure. One dive is done per day and each dive can take multiple hours. In the presented case the patient underwent 120 days of HBO therapy, so you can imagine how much time and effort went in to treatment.

    The dives are most commonly done in a tube like machine [the chamber], but more recently they have developed rooms that patients can sit in that produce the appropriate pressures to treat the patient. The chambers are tight and can be difficult for a claustrophobic patient.

    Here's a link to get an idea of what a chamber looks like: https://www.hyperbaricpro.com/product/hyperbaric-oxygen-chamber-hardshell-34-inch-diameter-1-5-ata/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIpfCi_sWp6gIVFrbICh06tAzqEAYYAyABEgKKA_D_BwE

    Learning Objectives:

    Upon completion of this webinar, participants should be able to:
    1. Understand the pathology of MRONJ
    2. Understand different stages of MRONJ and subsequent management
    3. Review cases to help understand that appropriate treatment

    Summary:

    IHS Dental Updates is the premier dental conference of the Indian Health Service Division of Oral Health. Offered biennially, this conference is specifically designed for IHS and tribal dentists, dental hygienists, dental health aide therapists, and dental assistants. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 conference was held virtually via Zoom, and was open only to dental staff working currently in IHS, tribal, and urban dental programs.

    The conference was held over three days from Tuesday, April 13, 2021 to Thursday, April 15, 2021. Each day will begin at 10:00 a.m. CENTRAL TIME [7:00 Alaska, 8:00 Pacific, 9:00 Mountain, and 11:00 Eastern] and commenced with two hours of general/plenary sessions designed to attract the entire dental team. After a one-hour break, the live conference resumed with an additional 3-4 hours of sessions specifically designed for dentists and dental health aide therapists [1st day], dental hygienists [2nd day], and dental assistants [3rd day], but each of these sessions could be attended by any dental staff.

    The theme of this year’s conference was “The Future of Oral Health,” and many of the topics looked at issues at the forefront of dentistry: the integration of oral health and primary care, the effects of COVID-19 on oral health, new guidelines on infection control from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and more.


    Learning Objectives:

    Learning objectives for each session will be published in the conference program. Overall learning objectives are as follows:

    1. Describe special infection control precautions that the CDC recommends for dental settings during the COVID-19 pandemic.
    2. List and explain three initiatives provided by the IHS Division of Oral Health or the Clinical and Preventive Support Centers over the past year.
    3. Compare and contrast the different types of tele-dentistry, and demonstrate opportunities to use each in your program in the future.

    Prerequisites:

    Participants must be dental staff of IHS, tribal, or IHS-funded urban dental programs; spouses, pets, and other family members are not allowed to attend sessions. Registration is only available online through the IHS CDE Portal [must have CDE account to register].
