Periodontal disease (PD) is independently associated with Cardiovascular disease (CVD). It is imperative that efforts to enhance cardiovascular wellness incorporate periodontal evaluations and therapies. This course will recognize the need for the medical community to value the dental role in managing the modifiable disease state of PD as it relates to systemic vascular disease. There is urgency for medicine and dentistry to join together to improve the lives of patients by reducing the morbidity and mortality associated with vascular disease.
This unique course will elucidate the science that binds the oral/systemic connection. As a participant, you will receive necessary tools to build bridges in your communities that bind medicine and dentistry together and bring CVD prevention to the dental chair.
Brad Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, MSN, ARNP are co-founders of the Bale/Doneen Method for the prevention of heart attack, stroke and diabetes. Thomas Nabors, D.D.S. is an authority in molecular analysis and genetic risk assessment for periodontal diseases.
Nabors, Bale and Doneen created this course to deliver the most current science and provide the clinical backdrop necessary to provide optimal CV wellness by building bridges between medicine and dentistry.
Watch the June 2011 Scientific Conference proceedings and earn continuing education credits in the comfort of your home or office or on your iPad. Of course it’s not quite the same as having been there in person, but it’s certainly the next best thing!
If you were fortunate enough to be in Chicago at the event, you’ll want to watch your favorite presentations again – and to give your team members who missed out that same opportunity to learn and earn.
AAOSH has partnered with DentalEDU.tv to bring you the AAOSH scientific session in video form. Watch them all or just those presentations you’re interested in. You’ll learn from leading cardiovascular prevention specialists and thought leaders in medicine and dentistry about the latest cutting edge science relative to oral-systemic healthcare - and especially the significance of the oral inflammatory burden’s impact on general health and how dentists and physicians can work together to improve their patients health.
[Note that due to contract limitations we are unable to offer the presentation of Ms. Casey Hein.]
