The BaleDoneen Method—a medical model found to be effective in preventing heart attack, stroke, and diabetes—stresses the importance of oral health in the reduction of inflammation and bacterial burden causing vascular destruction. The BaleDoneen Method was developed in 2003 by Bradley Bale, MD, medical director of the Heart Health program in Lubbock, Texas, and Amy Doneen, DNP, ARNP, medical director of the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center in Spokane, Washington. Together, they created a program of disease prevention focused on eliminating inflammation affecting the vascular system.1,2 Research has shown how important oral health is in maintaining overall health.3 Their program stresses the importance of evaluating the oral cavity for underlying inflammatory conditions. This method is dynamic in nature, evolves as the science and research dictate, and strives for optimum care.
