COURSE SUMMARY: Antibiotics prevent millions of deaths each year and remain the primary treatment for potentially fatal bacterial infections. Yet inappropriate prescription rates and overuse of antibiotics have led to resistance that has created a global health emergency and kills at least 700,000 people a year. If no action is taken, it is predicted to increase to 10 million deaths per year by 2050 -   making it deadlier than cancer. - WHO

This continuing education course will review the current emerging threat of “superbugs” and dentistry’s role in contributing to and reducing this threat.


  • Define the term “superbug”

  • Review current data and and trends

  • Compare antibiotic resistance to antimicrobial resistance

  • Describe how antibiotic resistance develops

  • Recognize overprescribing, misuse of antibiotics, and agricultural use as contributors to antibiotic resistance.

  • Comprehend the impact of antibiotic resistance on public health

  • Review indications for antibiotic prophylaxis in the dental practice

  • Demonstrate Antibiotic Stewardship and illustrate the role of the dental clinician
