Oral Health is Overall Health: Dentists & Physicians Working Together
Oral health affects overall health and vice versa. This has profound effects on our patients and the population at large. Statistics show that more than half the population will not see a dentist this year, while approximately 30 million people will not see a medical provider yet see a dentist which is why working together is so important. There are opportunities to work together to synergize the medical-dental collaboration to ensure better referrals, oral health advice, and overall management of health. This webinar will discuss practical opportunities for working together in our communities - office to office, provider to provider - to improve medical-dental systems.
