COURSE DESCRIPTION: According to the National Eating Disorders Association, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from eating disorders in the United States. Eating disorders are potentially life-threatening, serious disorders that can have devastating effects on an individual's emotional and physical health.

Eating disorders are widely overlooked and often go undetected in the dental office. Oral health providers, namely dental hygienists, can be instrumental in the screening, identification, and referral process of caring for their patients with an eating disorder. Oral health providers are poised to serve a significant role in preventive and palliative oral care during the recovery process.

This seminar will provide data on current trends of eating disorders in our nation and include related oral manifestations and screening and risk assessment tools to assist the oral health provider with the treatment care plan. This seminar will feature in-depth focus on language appropriate dialogue for support and referral.

Course Objectives:

1.     Recognize trends in eating disorders through review of current statistics

2.     Review and describe the three classifications of eating disorders according to the DSM5

3.     Review eating disorder screening tools for use in the dental office

4.     Explain dialogue for approaching a patient with a suspected eating disorder

5.     Interpret and apply risk assessment tools to manage oral health issues for patients with eating disorders

6.     Apply knowledge to develop a patient centered treatment plan
