Webinar and Knowledge Quiz

On Dec. 4, 2022, three international Fellows discussed antibiotic prescribing in dentistry guidelines and outcomes. The panel of experts, Dr. Anirudha Agnihotry (USA), Prof. Michael McCullough (Australia) and Dr. Wendy Thompson (United Kingdom), engaged in interesting conversations about antibiotic sustainability, adverse effects for patients, effective use in oral surgery and pain management, and more.
