The Wellness Focused New Patient Exam

April 28, 2022
9:00 am – 11:30 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 thereof) or their eating patterns in the car before they sit in our chair. There’s irrefutable scientific evidence that these habits have the ability to ramp up inflammation or dial it down. In this high energy entertaining program, be prepared to have your hair blown back.

Learning Objectives:
1) Discover how eating habits can 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 right away at the new patient exam.
3) Understand why your sedentary patients don’t heal as well as your patients with an active lifestyle.
4) Gain greater insight into the relationship between chronic inflammation & disease and become a leader in your practice.
