Description:
Eating disorders represent a complex spectrum of chronic illnesses, with medical and psychologic complications that lead to the highest mortality of all psychiatric disorders. It's an epidemic on our college campuses. Members of the dental team play an integral role in helping to identify those patients with undiagnosed eating disorders. In fact, because of oro-facial manifestations, they may be the first health care providers to encounter such patients and will be instrumental in making appropriate referrals for further diagnostic work-up and treatment. This course will address the psychological, medical, dental and oral health issues associated with these disorders as well as dental management considerations.

Learning objectives:

Participants will be able to:

  • understand the psychologic and medical issues associated with eating disorders.

  • identify oro-facial manifestations associated with eating disorders.

  • address and manage the dental issues associated with eating disorders.
