Course Description

Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASVD) has been the leading cause of death in the United States for the past century.  According to the CDC, someone has a heart attack every 40 seconds and 630,000 Americans die from one each year.  Although major advances in the way we treat cardiovascular disease have reduced mortality rates, these statistics remain unchanged. Further progress in treating cardiovascular disease must shift the focus to prevention. Join us for this webinar on how to achieve better cardiovascular disease patient outcomes by practicing a cutting-edge preventive health care model, built on collaboration between medicine and dentistry.

Learning Objectives

  1. Describe the connection between oral disease and vascular disease.

  3. Implement oral care probiotics into your periodontal therapy
  4. Recognize how close collaboration between medical and dental professionals is a prerequisite for reducing oral systemic inflammation and preventing cardiovascular events.

After this webinar, you will be able to implement:

  1. Be able to identify the root causes of cardiovascular disease
  2. Understand the important role dental professionals play in reducing cardiovascular risk
  3. Start collaborating with medical colleagues
