Course Information
Cardiovascular disease is still the leading cause of death in the U.S. Diabetes is one of the most common chronic disease oral health professionals are likely to encounter. When a patient has both hypertension and diabetes, which is a common combination, their risk for cardiovascular disease doubles. Oral health screening tests in the dental practice can be the latest weapon in identifying persons at risk. Oral-systemic links can put patients in jeopardy for a dental of ce emergency. Risk assessment for caries infections, periodontal disease, oral cancer and medical emergencies is our best prevention.
