The New Wellness Approach: Co-Managing Patients with Medicine
Timothy Donley DDS MSD
Today’s visit to the dental office should be about wellness.
Today’s visit to the dental office should be about wellness. Dentistry is no longer just about the teeth…it’s about inflammation. Inflammation is at the root cause of many of the chronic diseases of aging. The evidence is clear that the mouth can contribute to the overall level of inflammation when periodontal disease persists. Many of the risk factors for systemic disease also affect periodontal disease. By managing the risk factors we have in common with medicine, today’s dental professional can help their patients achieve better oral and overall health.
This course presents a comprehensive program for incorporating wellness screening and therapy into existing dental practices.
