“Street Drugs Exposed – What Your Patients
and Your Kids ARE NOT Telling You!!”
Recommended: For dentists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, receptionists, and
spouses. *Must be 18 years of age or older to attend-no exceptions
PROGRAM: What questions should I be asking my patients to avoid drug interactions with street drugs? What is the impact on my practice of
the recent resolutions, approved by the American Dental Association, for providing dental care for patients who are and/or have been chemically
dependent? What are some of the oral manifestations of street drug abuse? How will I know if a person is under the influence of street drugs?
What are the characteristics of and how do I manage the “doctor shopper”? Do I have to take any precautions with the dental patient who
is under the influence? Why is it so important that the dental staff be knowledgeable about street drugs? Why am I at risk? What are some
characteristics of adolescent substance abuse and what do I do about it? What is the impact of marijuana legalization on dentistry?
The dental team is in a unique position, providing dental care to a patient population that may be regular users or experimenting with mood
altering drugs. This dynamic, brutally honest, and graphic presentation will take you from the streets and into the office to help you identify and
manage the substance abusing patient. Discussion includes the origins, types, mechanisms of action, and signs and symptoms of commonly
abused prescription and illicit drugs.
You Will Learn:
■ The signs and symptoms of commonly abused prescription and
illicit drugs in patients and adolescents.
■ How to manage the chemically-dependent patient.
■ What is “wax, “dab”, or “scat” and how will it affect me?
■ What are “meth mouth”, “lean”, “whippets”, “parachuting”,
“bath salts”, “Spice Diamond, Spice Gold” and more?
■ What medications to avoid with the suspected drug abusing patient.
■ Why some people become addicted and others do not.
■ How to recognize and manage the ‘doctor shopper”.
■ How my kid gets intoxicated on hand sanitizer?

(What you don’t know could hurt you.)
Since human resource management and compliance with
the variety of state and federal labor regulations are not
taught in the typical dental school curriculum, doctors often
find themselves in court regarding employment issues.
Such lawsuits can be emotionally draining and financially
Dealing wisely and effectively with complex employment
issues can be particularly challenging and personnel issues are
a major source of stress for most practitioners. This can come
in various forms such as: employee pay, benefits (vacation,
sick, medical, retirement, etc.), leave of absence, pregnancy,
hiring, and termination, just to name a few.
Geared for the dentist/owner, this presentation delves
deeply into how to easily apply proven, professional
personnel management techniques to some of the many
common personnel problems to help take the risk out of being
an employer and insure employment law compliance. Each
participant will be provided with a presentation handout
along with supporting resource material.
Adrienne Wright
Adrienne Wright is an HR and employment compliance
specialist with Bent Ericksen & Associates. Adrienne provides
educational programs, training and human resource services
to dental professionals. With her HR expertise and experience,
coupled with a background managing a large dental group
practice, Adrienne’s presentations are insightful and practical,
with an HR success oriented focus.
Adrienne believes HR success is achieved through:
1) An “infrastructure” of employment law compliance, basic
HR principles, job descriptions and policy manuals, to
ensure a solid foundation from which to grow.
2) A “recruitment” process, i.e. better recruiting and
interviewing techniques, reference checking and
background checks, and job matching/job selection
processes, to ensure hiring the right people to first time.
3) Tools for more “effective staff management”, i.e.
maximizing the potential and success of people, to
ensure long term retention and better job performance/
satisfaction. This includes improving communication,
performance reviews, teambuilding, problem solving,
conflict resolution and bonus/incentive plans.
You will learn how to:
■ Determine your degree of potential
exposure and liability.
■ Minimize exposure to potentially costly
lawsuits and complaints.
■ Insure compliance with State and Federal
employment regulations.
■ Prevent misunderstandings — create a positive
and productive work environment.
Adrienne is a member of the Association of Dental Office
Managers, the American Academy of Dental Group Practices,
Academy of Dental Management Consultants, Speaking
Consulting Network, and the Society for Human Resource
■ Define rights and responsibilities of employer
and employees.
■ Improve morale and job performance.
■ Hire the right people.
■ Reduce costly staff turnover.

“Opportunities for the Dental Profession —­
What does the data tell us?”
Dentistry is a profession in transition. Several major shifts are occurring simultaneously to reshape the U.S. dental care sector. Utilization of dental care is down among adults and up among
children – and not because of the recession. New models of dental care delivery are emerging.
Dental school tuition and student debt loads are at an all-time high. A new wave of health care
consumerism is changing how the population ‘shops’ for care. On top of all this, the Affordable
Care Act (ACA) is about to transform the U.S. health care system with important implications for
dentistry. Medicaid expansion, the establishment of health insurance marketplaces, and provider
payment reform that will emphasize value are key aspects of tomorrow’s environment. This engaging, data-driven discussion will provide an overview of the changing dental landscape, looking retrospectively at important trends, and prospectively at what the future environment holds.
The opportunities for the dental profession will be discussed extensively.
