The connection between dental and general health is not generally appreciated in either medical or dental practice. This activity is intended to facilitate communication and collaboration between medical and dental professionals who can be viewed as healers observing disparate and superficially unrelated aspects of disease that affect many parts of the body.

This activity will provide an example of a dialog between a physician and a dentist in discussing the needs of patients experiencing both medical and dental disease. The discussion will cover the contribution of dental disease to the etiology of common medical pathologies and systemic factors in dental health. Learners will be introduced to the epidemiological studies linking dental and systemic disease and interventional studies indicating the benefits of joint medical and dental treatments.

Registration is complimentary, but pre-registration is required.
