According to Dr. Comisi, “Dentistry has evolved from those days of ‘drill, fill and bill.’ We are no longer ‘just dentists.’ We are now a vital part of patient health care management. It’s an exciting and important time to be in dentistry. Most patients see their dentist more frequently than they do their physician. As such, we have the ability to detect and identify many systemic manifestations of disease and be of great service to our patients in their well-being.”
This course will review what the presenter likes to call the “pillars of oral health care management:” caries management and restorative considerations; periodontal disease control; oral cancer screening; and the most recent addition to the “pillars,” the identification and management of sleep breathing disorders. Each of these is the responsibility of today’s oral health care provider. And by incorporating these pillars into your practice you will serve the patient population in wonderful ways to help them be healthier and your practice more vibrant. Are you ready to “up your game” and become more than “just a dentist?”
