Actively searching for periodontal disease
We now know that the mouth is the portal to the entire body. With strong evidence suggesting, and indeed revealing daily, oral links to heart disease, diabetes, obesity, low-birth-weight babies, and more, it has become glaringly obvious and imperative that the dental office be more than a cleaning and filling station. The dental practice of today — and of the future — must be a center for wellness and prevention. It must be a screening, diagnostic, and treatment center for a plethora of conditions that affect oral and whole body health. The ideal place to direct these energies is the preventive-oriented hygiene department.
