Dental health linked to overall health
from Public News Service
If a person has good teeth, chances are he or she also has good overall health, and Virginia healthcare providers want to make sure legislators understand that connection. More primary care doctors and dentists are coordinating their services for the benefit of their patients. Peggy Whitehead, executive director of Blue Ridge Medical Center, a community health center that serves thousands of patients, many without health insurance, says her center partners with The Free Clinic of Central Virginia to provide dental treatment and plans to combine dental and medical care under one roof.
