Course Description

Course Description:

With the unmasking of the human genome, our comprehension of the genetic aspects of human disease are is leading to new approaches in the prevention, diagnosis, and management of craniofacial, oral, and dental diseases in dentistry. We are now able to appreciate the role that hereditary factors contribute to caries, periodontal disease, missing or supernumerary teeth, altered tooth structure, and oral cancer. Based on the expanding market of commercial personalized genetic test kits, dentists should be prepared to discuss genetic factors, testing, and susceptibility to for dental disorders with their patients. This presentation will provide a foundation in genetics, resources, genetic disorders, and the application of gene-wide association studies in the dental practice.

Learning Objectives:

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

  1. Understand the update on genetic competencies and family histories
  2. Understand the principles of dental genetic disorders and utilization of genetic resources
  3. Have a basic understanding of gene-wide association studies and their application to dentistry
