Course Description:

This is an exciting time to be a dental health professional as dentistry and dental hygiene are both growing as medical specialties. As our understanding of the multiple links between the mouth and the body has increased, our roles have expanded to include awareness of and focus on the whole health of our patients.

Traditionally, dental health care practitioners have not approached dental disease in the same way that medical doctors approach systemic diseases. There is much to be gained by adopting certain medical strategies, such as performing risk assessment, seeking the root cause, employing laboratory testing, and utilizing wound care protocols, into our routine dental care.

We must try to unravel the complex interactions between host susceptibility, immune response, genetic associations, behavioral components, and disease control.

As knowledge of the oral-systemic connections has become widely understood and accepted, the next step is to integrate that knowledge into practical clinical protocols. It’s time to elevate our identities as healthcare practitioners in this new age of integrated medicine and dentistry.
