Dr Roderick Marshall
The use of antibiotics against a bacterially driven infection would seem logical, and yet in the case of periodontitis clinical indications are few and success limited at best.
In recent times, much has been made of the beneficial effects of azithromycin as an adjunctive treatment for periodontitis. At the same time, dire warnings have been issued about the dangers of resistance from indiscriminate use and even death as a sobering side effect. The evidence is conflicting, so how do you do the best thing for the patient? Hopefully this lecture will provide a framework for working this out.
Rod graduated with honours in dentistry (University of Queensland) in 1988. He completed his periodontal speciality degree in 1992 and was appointed senior lecturer at UQ in 2001. Rod is a fellow of a number of international academies and has lectured across Australia and internationally. In addition to undergraduate and postgraduate teaching Rod now maintains a full-time specialist periodontal practice in Brisbane.
