The benefits of preventive dentistry is no longer understood to be localized to the mouth and centered around the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease. Current research has established a direct link between oral and systemic health, suggesting preventive dentistry is in fact, preventative medicine. Understanding the dental professional’s role in disease and risk management is critical to successfully implementing a system to diagnose and treat oral conditions with systemic health implications. 

Understanding the connection between inflammation and disease initiation and progression is critical to establishing a protocol to effectively and efficiently treat and reduce oral and systemic inflammation. 

This course explains how treating periodontal disease and managing inflammation improves the health of patients and transforms dental practices–increasing fulfillment for dentists and their teams.

Learning Objectives

  • Understand the relationship between oral and systemic health—connecting the patient’s oral condition to their health history.

  • Learn to identify patient risk factors make appropriate diagnoses. 
  • Understand the philosophy of total mouth disinfection and how utilizing the appropriate tool provides ease and ensures success.

  • Discover how utilizing GBT reduces provider strain and fatigue, improves patient experience, attracts like minded team members, improves team retention and improves the practice profitability.
