Alternative Medicine for the Dental healthcare provider
An ACDE Series Webinar

Course Description:

In the early 1900’s Herbal Supplements were the hallmark of the pharmaceutical industry.  About 67% of all medicine listed in the United States Pharmacopeia (USP) were botanicals.  Now only 2% of all entries in the USP are botanicals.  With the cost of rising health care, and a shift towards self-medicating, the consumer demand for 100% natural products has increased dramatically.  This Course will review the most common/y used herbs and natural substances. It will also provide you with information on drug herb interactions and unsafe herbs and natural supplements.

Learning Objectives:

At the conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Understand the differences between Holistic and Complementary Medicine.
  2. Know the definition of Herbal supplements
  3. Understand the science behind the herbal and natural supplements
  4. Recognize herbal/ drug interactions
