We all have heard the cliché “I don’t know what came first, the chicken or the egg”. When properly used, it describes a situation where we truly don’t know what came first. When it comes to periodontal disease, all too often we lose clarity as to what really did come first. Watch my short video tip on how, if we want to help our patients treat periodontal disease proactively, WE as their oral health care providers need to QUIT MINIMIZING THEIR BLEEDING!

Why Do We Fear Change?
Change is truly not as easy as we all would like it to be. We know that change is inevitable. Relationships, our jobs, technology and even how we practice dentistry is subject to change. We know so much more about the oral systemic link and how to better care for our patients and their overall health yet WE FEAR MAKING THE CHANGE. In private coaching we often hear from our clients “how do we implement change and not have our dedicated patients lose faith and trust in us? And even if we decide to change our protocols, we don’t know how to make it STICK, so why even get started”? Watch my short video discussing how one team almost let their fear of change overcome the decision to grow in delivering ‘next level services’ for their patients.

What more can I do?
Have you ever asked yourself, what more can I do? Do you have a heart for the aging population in your community or perhaps in your own family?
If you answered yes to either of these questions, you won’t want to miss this informative webinar with Angie Stone, RDH, author of ‘Dying From Dirty Teeth’ and founder of HyLife Oral Health Alliance (HOHA). Also joining us will be Mary Jensen, RDH, independent HOHA member and Oral Care Services provider.
It turns out there is a big gap when it comes to elder oral care in elder care facilities. And with the recent on-line publication of research that finally proves a causal relationship between high risk periodontal pathogens and arterial sclerotic diseases, not to mention the impact of perio on diabetes, these folks could very well be ‘dying from dirty teeth’. Don’t take my word for it, click here for the article.
Join Angie, Mary and myself to learn more about this ‘gap’ in care and what you can do about it.
