Care-iology: How to “care” for your patient’s saliva!

Presented by: Erinne Kennedy DMD, MPH, MMSc

Sponsored by: ARKRAY

Understanding and measuring salivary indicators offers a unique opportunity for your team to care for patients by creating and sustaining oral health. Not only can these indicators screen for disease risk, patient health behaviors and therapies can be targeted and tracked to further motivate behavior change and refine treatment. Ultimately implementing chairside screening of saliva will allow your team to practice care-iology with extra care.

Learning Objectives
1. Identify 7 salivary indicators that describe and care for your patient’s oral health.
2. Apply chairside screening to help assess caries risk and support healthy patient behaviors.
3. Critically appraise patient cases and discuss innovative preventive treatment options for reducing caries risk.
