Total Health 1-Day Event
Recent scientific literature suggests a strong relationship between oral disease and other systemic diseases and medical conditions. A new relationship between dentistry and medicine is now developing regarding patient care. As the oral systemic connection is more clearly understood, dentists will play a greater role in the overall health of their patients. Many times, the first signs of unnatural systemic health conditions reveal themselves in changes within the oral cavity.

The purpose of this one-day course with “hands-on” workshops is to provide the attendee with an overall understanding of the latest scientific findings, the individual areas of concern, the dentist/physician connection and the tools/procedures necessary for the dentist to provide a Total Health approach to their practice. At the end of this course, participants should be able to: • Establish a Total Health approach within their practice • Establish a communication and referral program with MDs • Identify specific Total Health areas you wish to expand within your practice • Utilize appropriate tools for screening and treatment
