The integration of medicine and dentistry is an exciting development in modern healthcare. While medical-dental integration was once a dream among healthcare visionaries, it is now a tangible reality. This is due in large part to the COVID-19 pandemic, which has accelerated change and made many Americans aware of the oral-systemic link for the first time. In this educational CE webinar, Crystal Spring, RDH, an expert in access-to-care issues, will look at how dental professionals can be a part of this historical medical-dental transition.

Through a dynamic discussion, a number of impactful medical procedures for dental professionals will be presented. These include: taking thorough health histories; administering vaccines; testing HbA1c levels; measuring blood pressure; performing oral cancer screenings; and helping patients with nutritional choices. Dental solutions for medical providers will also be explored. These include: the use of intraoral cameras; referring via teledentistry; providing oral health recommendations; applying fluorides, and performing oral cancer screenings. The overall result is the closing of longstanding gaps in American healthcare, with dental professionals having the chance to improve overall patient care in ways never before possible.

Upon completion of this CE webinar, the student will be able to:
• Understand how access-to-care and oral health disparities in America are being overcome
• Recognize the role of dental providers as integral members of the medical healthcare team
• Develop strategies to bring medical tools into a dental practice
• Find ways to use teledentistry for overall patient health   ( disclaimer, bio and commercial disclosure )
