Session #1 – Updating Medical History: The Questions You Didn’t Know You Needed To Ask

Whether your patient is pre-, during, or post-cancer therapy, updating the medical history can seem daunting. Why?  Because each cancer comes with a unique set of challenges and contraindications. The problem: not knowing what  you should be asking.

In this lecture, Dr. Jessica Metcalfe gets to the root of asking necessary medical history questions, explores the  specific needs for certain cancer diagnoses, explains treatment planning from a unique perspective and provides you  with the tools to feel comfortable treating the cancer patient throughout their therapy and beyond.

Learning Objectives:

  • Gain confidence with complex medical history
  • Examine the indications and contraindications for all cancer types and treatment including radiation, chemotherapy, transplant and IV bisphosphonates
  • Optimize communication with the patient and their medical team
  • Explore your role as the dentist in the cancer patient’s journey for routine, acute and palliative care

Session #2 – The Alchemy Of Dentistry: Success And Burnout

Description: Being a high-achiever is instinctive. You work hard devoting your time and energy to dentistry. Yet, you underestimate your abilities, explain away your successes, overwork to predict mistakes and are always exhausted. In this open and real conversation, Dr. Jessica breaks down barriers associated with self-doubt, perfectionism and mental well-being in the dental profession. It’s time to talk about the dark side of dentistry.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Identify self-doubt to redefine perfection, embrace mistakes and harness strengths
  2. Explore dental stressors and prevent burnout
  3. Design work/life blueprint by setting boundaries, improving self-care and finding fulfilment
