A recent guideline for treatment of sinusitis suggests that most viral sinusitis is persistently symptomatic for nearly 2 weeks.(1) The symptoms peak at 2 – 3 days time and resolve without any antibiotic treatment by 14 days or so. This suggests a longer watcful waiting period before using antibiotics for treatment of sinusitis. Most sinusitis are of viral origin and antibiotics do not have a role in the treatment of such viral sinusitis. Symptomatic relief could be obtained by using intranasal steroids, saline nasal drops, inhalation of steam and with use of analgesics. “Watchful waiting” is beneficial to a great extent and the infection subsides in about the same time it takes even with the use of antibiotics indicating the futility of routine antibiotic usage in sinus infections.

I believe modern dentist must have a blend of right measures of clinical acumen and management skills. Medically complex patients are common and infact treating a healthy patient is an exception than the rule these days. Concepts of patient engagement and patient safety are catching up in medical field whereas in dentistry, we are still far behind in adopting these best practices. Making your practice visible and engaging with patients has never been easier with the advent of the social media. But most dentists are still not actively using their web presence. Some even have their own websites but still a lot of potential of social media is left untapped by most dentists.
Keeping all this in mind, I decided to include these concepts to empower the modern dentist and a course is in the making in collaboration with MedReach – A healthcare IT company. The details of this course / workshop with a very nominal fee, will be made available shortly in subsequent posts. The course to be conducted in Chennai might be in third week of April or the first week of May.
