Evaluation of the Integrated Dental Medicine Care Model
Thursday, March 13th, 5:00-6:15 PM Eastern Time (US & Canada)
The overall vision of integrated dental medicine is based on oral health as an integral aspect to total body wellness (systemic care). Poor oral health can lead to many systemic issues and adverse events as well as poor systemic health leading to adverse oral conditions. Therefore, it is imperative that providers, across all disciplines, with these patient commonalities work together in order to produce positive patient outcomes. This course will review and evaluate the various aspects to this care delivery model as well as provide analysis of currently operating integrated dental medicine clinics. The course will also review updates on methodology and outcomes assessment with dental care used for systemic medical treatment. This lecture would be beneficial to any dental or allied healthcare professional.
Course Objectives: - Gain knowledge and understanding on how dentistry improves medical outcomes - Discuss the role of dental care providers as screeners for medical disease - Evaluate the current use of non-dentist clinicians and its impact on the patient experience - Discuss the enhancement of inter-professional relationships
