Collaboration between dental medicine and non-dental medicine is imperative to save and improve the lives of our patients. We understand the importance of sharing our findings and collaborating to achieve the best outcomes and optimal care of the patient. Where are we in real-life clinical application of collaborative care and where are we going?
In this course the clinician will:
Review the current options and future trends to identify and monitor silent or subclinical disease
Begin to analyze subclinical disease treatment and root cause resolution from a cellular medicine and biological-age approach Understand root cause resolution that requires a collaborative treatment plan between dental and non-dental medical practices
Discuss efficiency and productivity approaches to collaborative care
