OraVital Inc., The Oral Infection Experts™, will be kicking off its 2017 KOL Access Webinar Series, with two of the leading pioneers of the oral-systemic health movement; Dr. Bradley Bale and Dr. Amy Doneen, who are the authors of the best-selling book, “Beat the Heart Attack Gene”
Long time advocates of the critical role that dental professionals play in the prevention of heart attacks and strokes, Drs. Bale and Doneen recently co-authored an article with Dr. David Vigerust that will be published in print in the prestigious Postgraduate Medical Journal and was published online ahead of print by the British Medical Journal (BMJ) entitled, “High-Risk Periodontal Pathogens Contribute to the Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis.”
According to OraVital CEO, Dr. Jim Hyland, “This is a ground-breaking report that further validates the oral-systemic health link in general and more specifically, the perio-cardio link. The PGMJ /BMJ manuscript clearly states, ‘periodontal disease due to high risk pathogens is a cause of arterial disease.’ Now more than ever, dental clinicians can and should strengthen their commitment identifying and managing this form of periodontal disease.”
Because of the complexity of the topic and because atherosclerosis is the largest cause of death and disability in North America, Drs. Bale and Doneen have been invited to present their findings in a two-part CE webinar. The schedule is as follows:
According to Dr. Bale, “Periodontal disease due to high risk pathogens must be considered a contributory cause of arterial disease. Dr. Bale will present the science which supports this landmark statement. Considering this knowledge, the dental community has a significant opportunity to favorably impact the number one cause of death and disability by effectively managing this type of periodontal disease.”
“It is necessary to respect the clinical context for which the information outlined in the recent BMJ study can be applied to the clinical dental arena,” explained Dr. Doneen. “What’s more, lines of communication must be created between medicine and dentistry that can clearly articulate the importance of understanding the oral pathogen burden as it relates to the vascular health of the individual patient.”
