RDH Under One Roof Extended – September 16, 2023

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify key inflammatory biomarkers related to oral disease
  • Examine how the oral microbiota, its byproducts, and their interaction with the host immune system can influence systemic disease.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the bidirectional relationship of dysbiosis to cardiovascular disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, chronic kidney disease, autoimmune disorders, pulmonary disease, obesity, and digestive diseases. 

The field of oral systemic health is rapidly expanding with irrefutable evidence of the growing link of systemic diseases as related to poor oral health. As the mouth being the entry point for our body systems when it’s compromised by disease or injury general health can be disturbed. When we know more about the connections and affects, we give patients the highest level of care.

You may feel you have heard it all about oral systemic health, but this course is different. We will explore not only oral dysbiosis and the pathogens that create that environment, but the host response pathways. What are lipopolysaccharides, neutrophils, macrophages, MMP8, C-reactive proteins, fibrinogen, cytokines and how they work in conjunction with oral disease will be answered. There will also be a review of over 10 health outcomes related to oral diseases including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, pulmonary disease, and autoimmune disorders.

We are a division of healthcare, and we are anything but basic. We are exceptional and as science is every changing, we must be willing learn the new and explore potential changes to our existing models.
