Course Description

Antimicrobials have an enormous impact on the environment and human health. From an international microbiology perspective, what are the implications we are seeing while we navigate through this Era of the Susceptible Host and the interplay between the environment and the average person’s immune system?  Microbiology Professor (UW-Milwaukee) Dr. Todd Miller will add expert insight as a guest for Part 2.

We will take a deep dive discussing microbial myths, the question of overtreating and overkilling, and how microbes work off each other and communicate.  Relevant case studies will be presented with solutions you can implement as a dental professional to improve the health status of your patients.

Learning Objectives

  1. Enhance understanding of microbiology and the long-term implications of commonly accepted practices
  2. Discuss biofilm mechanisms and sharpening of diagnostic skills
  3. Provide next level thinking about botanical solutions and modulation of the body’s microbiomes for restoring and maintaining oral health

After this webinar, you will be able to implement:

  1. How to approach the mouth from an immune modulation standpoint and why the impact of stress cannot be overlooked
  2. Utilize proven diagnostic skills to improve oral health
  3. Implement simple, clinically-effective botanicals that support modulating oral microbial imbalances

Todd R. Miller, PhD – Director Laboratory for Aquatic Environmental Microbiology and Chemistry - The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

Research in my laboratory is concerned with characterizing factors that regulate human exposure to natu rally occurring or anthropogenic toxins in water or wastewater. I am particularly interested in understanding how microbial communities affect the concentration, fate and toxicity of harmful chemicals in the aquatic environment. The ultimate goal of this research is to formulate models (either numerical or conceptual) of toxin production, release, and degradation in aquatic systems. Since the diversity of biochemical functions performed by microorganisms is only beginning to be realized, this research is both challenging and intriguing.
