  • Describe various modalities available to ward off cognitive decline for all people
  • Be comfortable having conversations with patients regarding the connection between oral and brain health, no matter the patients’ age

The brain is the most complex organ in the body. It controls thought, memory, emotion, touch, motor skills, vision, breathing, temperature, hunger and every process that regulates the body. Without an adequately functioning brain people become a shell of a human.

Environment, lifestyle choices and genetics are directly correlated with brain health. What is not being taught is how making choices and taking action can assist with the maintenance of brain function, as well as increase quality of life, health span and longevity.

As the medical professional who likely sees and spends the greatest amount of time with patients, dental hygienists are perfectly positioned to share this information. In fact, hygienists have an obligation to provide information regarding the causation relationship poor oral health has to brain health.

By sharing the concepts learned in this course with patients, family and friends and the practicing brain maintenance themselves, hygienists can have a profound effect on the reduction of the number of people who suffer from cognitive decline. It’s possible.

Angie is excited to share this life changing information with you! Come feel her passion, be inspired, have some fun and likely walk away feeling a smidge better than you did before the class!
