Dental professionals will be confronted more frequently with medically compromised patients due to an increasing life expectancy in Western countries. The patients’ systemic diseases and medication usage can both have consequences for oral health and dental treatment. It is often impossible to have all medical-dental interactions handy in the dental practice. To support the dental professional in providing safe healthcare, a tool has been developed. The medical-dental interactions scanner supports both patients and dental professionals in taking a patient’s medical history and linking that information to the available literature. By that means, it is possible for the caregiver to provide patient-specific recommendations concerning possible adverse effects of medicaments,
intra-oral manifestations of systemic diseases and measures to prevent medical emergencies.
