Author information

Immunocompromised individuals present a challenge to oral health care providers. As the spectrum of patients with dysfunctional immune responses continues to broaden, practitioners should be able to identify these patients, understand the potential for complications, and manage their dental care safely and effectively. This article reviews various immune deficiencies, addresses complications that may result from an individual's immune status, and discusses dental considerations for these patients.
