Welcome to the CDHO Knowledge Network! Find the clinical information you need to make point-of-care decisions quickly and accurately.

The Knowledge Network contains advisories and fact sheets about medical conditions that clients may have and that need to be considered before initiating care. It is maintained by CDHO with the help of medical experts.

The advisories provide current, evidence-based medical research and the fact sheets serve as a quick reference for dental hygienists and their clients who are collaborating on whether:

  • a medical consultation is advised;
  • medical clearance is required;
  • antibiotic prophylaxis is advised; and
  • postponing treatment is advised.

The fact sheets also provide information on the signs and symptoms, oral manifestations and oral management implications associated with a particular condition. Learn how to bookmark the Knowledge Network on your mobile device for quick access!
