Continuing Education for the HDDHS


OUTLINE: How do we, as health care professionals, convey to our clients that “Blood in the Sink” after brushing and flossing means inflammation and disease, not only in the mouth but in the rest of the body as well? Everyone is talking about the “Oral –Systemic Link”.

  • What does that really mean and what do we as dental professionals need to know about it?
  • What is the next step when encountering blood and inflammation in client’s mouths?
  • There is a communication disconnect between dentists/dental hygienists and physicians, with the mouth being separate from the rest of the body.
  • What information do we need to bridge that communication gap? Learn how to build inter-Professional Collaboration.

Hygienists are the first line of defense against mouth and body inflammation, as clients see their dental hygienist/dentist more often than they see their physician.

  • What products are available to help client’s become healthier?
  • How do they help us?
