Course Description

Drs. Bradley Bale‎/Doneen/Vigerust wrote in the British Medical Journal November 2016 "high risk periodontal pathogens cause heart attacks."

"‎It means PD due to these high-risk microbes must be treated effectively to reduce the risk of ASVD. The definition of PD must include a diagnosis of the specific underlying pathogens causing the PD".

‎Understand what these statements mean now that periodontal disease is proven to be a medical condition and what it means for the future of dentistry.

Dr. Bale guarantees his results: "I guarantee you will not have a heart attack while you are under my care or I will refund your money." We can do the same for periodontal disease if we change our approach! ‎
