Addressing the Silent Oral-Systemic Health Epidemic in America 
Presenter: Dr. Jonathan Levine
Credits:  1 CEU Release Date: 4/4/18
CE Supporter: GLO Science   Expiration Date: 4/4/21

The former US Surgeon General declared oral health, with particular reference to periodontal disease, as “the silent epidemic” in 2010. Since then, a substantial amount of research has been conducted that associates oral infections with systemic inflammation, supporting the consideration of gum disease as a complex oral and systemic disease. A paradigm shift of oral health supporting and reflecting the health of the entire body has been established, however it has yet to receive the appropriate attention at a national level.

It is well understood that half of American adults have periodontal disease and that number rises to over 70% in the elder population. This information, combined with the fact that only 12% of people floss regularly, suggests that current strategies to control gingival inflammation have not been effective at a population level and renewed efforts are necessary. In this CE webinar, Dr. Jonathan B. Levine presents the facts, the science and current status on the silent epidemic of oral-systemic health.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will gain a further understanding of the oral health crisis, the connection between oral and overall health, and new innovative ways to impact the crisis.   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
