Dr. Jose Lanca is a medical doctor and expert researcher in cannabis. He discusses the effects to our dental practices.
Cannabis is a commonly used drug with significant adverse effects and potential for abuse and dependence. Its therapeutic use for specific medical conditions – including neuropathic pain, spasticity in multiple sclerosis, analgesia in cancer patients and prevention of chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting - has been approved by Health Canada. Considering the recent legislative changes for the non-medical use of cannabis, it is expected that its use, adverse effects and risks will become more frequent.
Therefore after completing this course, the participant should have an increased awareness of the organization of the endocannabinoid system, cannabinoid exposure and implications for systemic and oral health.
I have been the Undergraduate Program Director in the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Faculty of Medicine, at the UofT and has contributed extensively to curriculum development and teaching of pharmacology. I am also the director of several undergraduate as well as graduate courses in Pharmacology and Therapeutics at the UofT.
I have developed and taught courses and seminars in Continuing Medical and Dental Education, including the Canadian Dental Association, Ordre des Dentistes du Québec, Saskatchewan Oral Health Professions, Ontario Dental Association, Ontario Dental Hygienists’ Association, and at the UofT Continuing Dental Education. I have recently been invited by the governmental agencies Health Canada and Public Health Agency of Canada to write a review on the “"Effects of Cannabis Use on Oral Health and Systemic Effects Relevant to Oral Health Professions". This review has recently been completed and in addition he has been invited to present the topic in Ottawa to a joint session of Health Canada and Public Health Agency of Canada on April 30, 2019.
My dual professional background (MD/PhD) allows me to integrate pertinent research and clinical relevance. I have published extensively in various areas including herbal medications, neuropharmacology, and pharmacology of alcoholism and drug abuse. I have authored six chapters in medical pharmacology textbooks and edited a pharmacology textbook.
