Nutrition and Oral Health for Today’s Dental Practice This is a Core CE seminar

April 27, 2019
1:00 pm โ€“ 3:30 pm
  • Lisa Mallonee, BSDH, MPH, RD, LD

As dental professionals, we are in a unique position to provide our patients with the highest degree of preventive healthcare. The dental visit isn’t “just about the mouth” – it’s about the whole patient. By applying the basic principles of cariology with ongoing research and emerging information on diet and nutrition as it relates to oral and systemic health, we can confidently provide comprehensive preventive care for our patients.

Learning Objectives:
1) Identify patient risk factors that would benefit from a more in-depth dietary review.
2) Discuss the obesity epidemic and its application to periodontal health.
3) Confidently relate the importance of diet to dental patients during oral health care appointments.
