How can you get better results with your hygiene department and keep your patients begging to see you? This course teaches the dental team how to host conversations with the patient in your chair to solidify the value of the oral: systemic connection.   Learning Objectives 1. Discuss how to have efficient, to the point, conversations with patients about the connections between chronic inflammatory conditions (heart disease, diabetes, kidney failure, and osteoporosis) and periodontitis. 2. Describe how current diets are linked to nutrition depletion and inflammation. 3. Identify what patients with chronic health concerns potentially lack nutritionally.
