GlaxoSmithKline, maker of Sensodyne toothpaste, is proud to announce that dental professionals can now obtain from www.dental-professional.com/sensodyne, using access code SE04F, a free copy of Current Perspectives on Dentin Hypersensitivity -- a continuing-education program based on the 2002 FDI World Dental Congress symposium. The comprehensive course features a diverse panel of world-recognized clinicians and provides guidelines for diagnosing and managing dentin hypersensitivity, a condition which goes largely undiagnosed and affects one-in-five adults in the United States. Up to four hours of CE credit are available through the University of Louisville School of Dentistry, an ADA CERP recognized provider as approved by the American Dental Association. This program is made possible through an educational grant from GlaxoSmithKline.
Upon completion of the course, dental professionals will be better able to identify patients at risk for dentin hypersensitivity and make an accurate diagnosis. Treatment options for dentin hypersensitivity are detailed, including the different benefits of home care and professional management strategies.
"This navigable, windows-based CD-ROM includes a virtual symposium featuring four lectures; interviews with the faculty highlighting the key points in short sound bites; a resource center including tables of literature reviews and clinical trials; the symposium proceedings; and of course, the CE multiple choice tests," said Dr. David Alexander, Head of Worldwide Dental Education for GlaxoSmithKline. He added, "Apart from being a useful resource for continuing education, this CD-ROM is an invaluable learning aid for the undergraduate curriculum and brings world-class experts in periodontics, dental hygiene and operative dentistry to the student."
