The Dawson Academy: The Total Wellness Dental Practice

May 22-23, 2015

As we envision the future, we anticipate a dramatic shift in the role of the Dental Team in health care. There is tremendous opportunity for Dentistry to achieve a significantly elevated status as gatekeepers of systemic inflammation created by oral pathogens, sleep apnea, physical inactivity, stress, toxins, type 2 diabetes, and pro-inflammatory diets. Understanding our role in both diagnosis and therapy of these great risk factors can create a future for both patient and practice health like never before.

The topics covered in this course will include:

  • Total wellness, anti-aging, nutrition, lifestyle & meal preparation
  • The connection between oral-inflammation & the cardiovascular system
  • Comprehensive periodontal program
  • Headaches, TMJ, & splints
  • Sleep apnea
  • Insurance and medical coding
  • Marketing/Networking
