The PD-ACS Perio-Cardio Study: Short term results and long term implications for medicine and dentistry.

Presented by: Timothy Donley DDS MSD

The bi-directional relationship between periodontal and cardiovascular diseases suggests that the roles of both dental and medical providers must be expanded. Dentistry must play a greater role in cardiovascular disease management and medicine must become better at screening patients for the presence of oral sources of inflammation.

In this presentation we will reviews our preliminary findings from our study evaluating the effect that periodontal therapy has on cardiovascular recurrence. Based on these and other intervention results, many in dentistry and medicine have concluded that dentistry and medicine should work together to manage the patients they have in common. This course presents a realistic plan to do just that.

This is a fast-paced learn-it-today-use-it-tomorrow seminar which is supplemented with practice management materials which makes managing patient’s oral and overall information easy and efficient. This course is designed for the entire dental team. Doctors and hygienists and the entire office team are strongly encouraged to attend together.

Learning Objectives

• Update current oral inflammation-cardiovascular research.
• Develop an in-office protocol for cardiovascular screening (which patients, what to look for, what to say, what to do).
• Develop a protocol for medicine to follow to determine which of their patients should be referred for dental evaluation.
• Develop efficient communication protocols with medical providers who treat common patients.
