Cleaning Teeth vs. Saving Lives….It’s Your Choice

It is time to put our words into action and recognize our role in reducing inflammation and sustaining overall health for our dental patients. Our time is NOW to take our practice and patient’s health to the next level.

Lecture Synopsis:

The quest for optimal health supported by the attainment of oral health and reduction of chronic inflammation is gaining attention. The oral-systemic link conceptually is not new, however the reduction of the burden of chronic inflammation has become a benchmark of healthcare delivery. Long running, ongoing chronic disease such as periodontal disease tips the body’s balance towards chronic systemic inflammation. The dental hygienist is optimally situated as a ‘first responder’ to the oral cavity situated at the portal of entry and the gateway to systemic health. Our actions and assessment as a critical stakeholder dictate treatment outcomes, and strongly influence both the quality and quantity of life of every patient seated in our treatment room. We have the ability and the ethical responsibility to change lives through the power of our message and the science of our treatment. Our time is NOW to take our practice and patients’ health to the next level.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Understand the biological pathways of periodontal disease and its capability of initiating disesase states within the body
  • Understand the role and influence of the dental hygienist in risk intervention strategies
  • Customize chairside and self-care strategies to effectively minimize inflammation
  • Empower the patient through the provision of resources to understand the oral systemic connection and elevate treatment acceptance
