Casey Hein, BSDH, RDH, MBA

The time is now for medical-dental collaboration targeting periodontal disease and systemic diseases and conditions. But how do dentists and hygienists do this?

The evidence is clear; overall health is compromised by infection and inflammation within the oral cavity. Periodontal disease is perhaps the greatest contributor to this threat.

  • What do you say to patients and how does this effect treatment planning?
  • How do you collaborate with the medical community?
  • How should this evidence impact practice philosophies and systems?
