Five Patient Lifestyle Habits that Impact Healing This is a Core CE seminar

July 31, 2020
12:00 am – 12:00 am
  • Uche Odiatu, D.M.D., CPT

Our patients don’t leave their stressful jobs, poor sleeping patterns (insomnia, apnea, snoring), their physical fitness (or lack of) or their eating patterns (mindless eating and evening feeding frenzies) in the car before they sit in our chair. There is irrefutable scientific evidence that these habits have the ability to ramp up inflammation or dial it down. Well adjusted, rested, physically active, healthy eating patients enjoy a physiology that supports a better response to our prevention/restorative interventions. In this high energy, entertaining program, be prepared to have your hair blown back.

Learning Objectives:
1) Discover how eating habits have the ability to dial down or ramp up inflammation and how it affects your treatment outcomes.
2) Learn why it’s important to identify the sleep deprived patient in your practice.
3) Understand why your sedentary patients don’t heal as well as your active patients.
4) Gain greater insight into the relationship between chronic inflammation and disease.
5) Develop a conversation style to positively impact your patient at the new patient and recare exam.
