Oral health has emerged as a nationwide concern. With our changing healthcare system, we need to explore various avenues to provide effective preventive health services and programs. Collaboration with healthcare professionals can facilitate this initiative by expanding access to dental care. Dental hygienists in community healthcare facilities can work with dental education programs to broaden oral health services. In order to align educational goals and effective patient treatment, constructive assessment tools and formal training are needed to meet our community’s oral care demands. This course provides steps to implementing standardized efficient assessment and offers a guide to initiating a collaborative program with local healthcare facilities in your community.

Salivary Diagnostics: How it is changing our approach to diagnosis, risk assessment, and treatment of periodontal disease
AGD Subject Code(s): 013, 735 CE credits: 2 Cost: $49.00
Faculty: Heidi Arndt, RDH, BSDH, Herb Bader, DDS, FACD, FICD

The incidence of periodontal disease is far greater than we have been led to believe, according to the latest CDC NHANES survey, yet dental offices are submitting relatively few claims for periodontal procedures. The disconnect may stem from the fact that so many practices are “treating” disease with prophylaxes instead of definitively diagnosing. Until relatively recently we depended on simply probing for clinical data, but we now have the ability to accurately determine the causative pathogens with a simple salivary test. This allows the clinician and the patient to understand the underlying causes of the clinical changes, and then provide definitive therapy for management. The discussion will cover the implications of the dental clinician forging a closer link to medical colleagues by using pathogen and genetic predisposition testing in a medical model, so as to allow for more targeted, personalized therapy.

The Systemic Effect of Periodontal Therapy on the Management of Diabetes and Heart Disease: A Review of Recent Studies
AGD Subject Code(s): 149 CE credits: 1 Cost: $20.00
Faculty: Thomas W. Nabors, DDS, FACD

Dentists are routinely presented with patients that have Type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD). Among these patients, the potential health benefit of diagnosing and treating chronic inflammatory periodontal disease may be uncertain. This article reviews studies over the last decade to help understand the potential effect of periodontal therapy among these two patient groups. While there are many factors involved outside the realm of oral health and our understanding of cause and effect, these studies reveal that the dental professional’s role in systemic health care management is significant. Based on these studies, the management of chronic periodontal disease in specific chronically diseased patients appears to have a significant health benefit: plus an additional benefit in the reduction of over-all medical expenditures.
