Course Description:

Want to learn about “permanent lifestyle change” and SLASH your patients’ disease risk? And its relationship with healing after surgery. There is an avalanche of evidence demonstrating the connection between your patients’ mouths with modern lifestyle habits: lack of sleep (saps their discipline), shift work (after 4 night-shifts blood sugar is elevated), poorly managed stress (shows up in every cell of their body), overeating (high fat & processed food boosts inflammation), and sedentary living (did you know “Sitting is the New Smoking?”). And it’s bi-directional; the oral environment has far reaching effects on the rest of the body.

Patients appreciate the dental health professional who sees the bigger picture and truly understands the relationship between the body, mind & mouth. Set yourself apart from the pack and develop a VALUE-ADDED PRACTICE. Stop the deadly “rock n roll” cascade with specific dental & lifestyle solutions guaranteed to change your patient’s health destiny. This fact filled & inspirational program is a ‘call to arms’ against inflammation – “let’s douse the flames!”
