Who better to kick off this oral medicine-focused webinar series than America’s leading medical advocate for bridging the oral-systemic gap?Webinar Description: Enlightened dental professionals who recognize the impact that oral disease has on systemic disease must be invited to the integrated model of medicine. They must collaborate with their fellow health professionals including physicians in order to truly elevate our society’s standard of healthcare.
Unfortunately, the efforts of dental professionals to engage with physicians on behalf of their common patients are often met with respectful inaction and resistance. How can this be changed?
This webinar will provide members with the entire dental team with a practicing physician’s insight into the medical mind set and valuable tips on how to successfully break down the walls between medicine and dentistry. The end result: The co-management of patients to prevent disease, improve existing medical conditions achieve a higher level of overall health and enjoy longer “health spans”.

Debbie will also help the entire dental team overcome the fear of discussing oral abnormalities with their patients using for proven principles and will review the benefits of integrating a variety of adjunctive technologies for screening every patient for oral abnormalities preventively vs. finding late stage oral cancer.

“Teach Your Patients Well: The Patient and Oral Health Professional Partnership”
John C. Comisi, DDS, MAGD & Karen L. Comisi, CDA, RDA, FADAA
Presented by one of dentistry’s leading power couples who work side by side in their aptly named practice, “Dental Care With a Difference.”Webinar Description: Are your patients frustrated? Frustrated because they are told they are not “brushing and flossing” well enough. Is that perhaps because they are being “told” to do it rather than shown how to do it?
The concept of oral management varies from individual to individual and is dependent upon what we are taught or perceive during our lifetime. For some the process is very easy and comes naturally, while for others it is a constant struggle because picturing the end result may not be so clear.
Our job as dental professionals is to provide the needed tools and directions to our patients so that they can succeed in the removal of the biofilm that creates oral disease. Without knowledge, there will not be healing.
This webinar will discuss the various discoveries in helping patients manage their oral health, and include the “trials and tribulations” experienced over the years of care for numerous patients.
