This lesson features Dr. Steven Yarows, MD, FACP, FASH. He will present his findings in his recent article entitled “Canceling Dental Procedures Due to Elevated Blood Pressure” which was published in the Journal of the American Dental Association (JADA). Dr. Yarows will provide an evidence-based rationale for how to approach a patient’s elevated blood pressure (BP). He will also challenge the existing concept of canceling a patient’s appointment due to elevated BP. Finally, he will discuss proper ways to measure a patient’s blood pressure.
