“Benefits of Bisphosphonate Therapy vs Frequency of Oral Complications: An Educational Program for Dental Professionals”

I recently signed up to attend an upcoming Novartis-sponsored dinner conference entitled “Benefits of Bisphosphonate Therapy vs Frequency of Oral Complications: An Educational Program for Dental Professionals”. It is being given here in Central NJ and I thought it would be an interesting lecture. You may also be interested in this topic. The dinner conferences will be held in cities throughout the U.S. including Fort Lauderdale, FL; Jacksonville, FL; Eatontown, NJ; Uniondale, NY; Valley Forge, PA; Long Beach, CA; San Francisco, CA; Houston, TX and Chicago, IL.

The 2-hour program will be presented by a clinician expert on bisphosphonate therapy and will cover the following topics:

· Overview of bisphosphonates and uses in treatment of osteoporosis and metastatic bone disease

* Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ) background
* ONJ frequency in oncology and osteoporosis patients treated with bisphosphonates
* Review of ONJ studies and management
