Comprehensive Treatment Seminars Study Club (2019-2020)

Wednesday, September 25, 2019, 6:00 PM

Dear Colleague: Welcome to the 2019-2020 study club year. Data continues to link preventive oral health care with improvements in overall health and well-being. The new evolution in understanding and interrelation of oral and systemic health has created new opportunities for both medical and dental professionals to work together more closely. Medical-dental integration has become an increasingly common component in the modern medicine arena, most likely because of a shift in consumer habits, increased focus on chronic disease management, and health care cost crises, according to experts. Gone are the days of treating dental diseases in a vacuum – we now know that by increasing our focus on prevention and early intervention, we can lower the cost and need for medical and dental treatment in the long run. The added benefit of this interprofessional collaboration is receiving referrals from medical or dental colleagues and getting paid by medical insurance. In this year’s program, we will focus on managing patients with Irlen syndrome, another twist in a complex of masticatory - sleep breathing disorders and prevention of the systemic comorbidities; OSA, stroke and heart attack. With that in mind, we have an educational and exciting schedule of sessions planned for our coming study club year 2019-2020 Seminar 1: “Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome, The Troublesome Connection Between Airway and TMD” (Wednesday, September 25, 2019) Presenters: Steve Carstensen DMD, Joseph Yousefian DMD MS, Sam Bobek MD DMD (3 CE Credits) Patients present to dental offices with TMD and headache; dentists are experts in helping them achieve health. Most dentists don’t ask about other somatic pain syndromes or take a detailed history that might reveal airway issues that could be part of the problem. This lecture establishes why these medical conditions can be linked and provide tools to help the dentist manage many chronic conditions. Learning Objectives: Take a more detailed history with better questions Reduce the uncertainty diagnosing chronic pain problems Approach therapy with greater confidence Seminar 2: “Preventing Heart Attacks, Strokes & Diabetes: A Collaborative Approach Between Medicine and Dentistry to Create Optimal Patient Wellness.” (Wednesday, November 13, 2019) Presenters: Larry Greenblatt DO (3 CE Credits) We’ve all heard the statistics. Nearly 800,000 Americans die of a heart attack or stroke each year. Some with subtle or not so subtle warnings and others who appear to be a picture of fitness.  As we age, fear continues to escalate as we beg the question “will this happen to me?” Many of us know someone who did all the right things and still experienced an event. Why does this happen?  Doctors Brad Bale, MD and Amy Doneen, DNP – created heart attack and stroke prevention methodology, by knowing that such tragedies can be avoided if we practice the right kind of health care. “Standard of Care” is not good enough to reach everyone. This methodology also has the ability to prevent many chronic diseases, or improve those that have begun. This we call “Optimal Care.”  Learning Objectives: Understand the difference between risk-based and a reality-based method for the prevention of heart attack and strokes Understand the role of inflammation in the oral-systemic connection Create strong partnerships between oral and systemic health care providers Seminar 3: “The Irlen Syndrome and Method of Treatment for Eliminating Migraines, Tension Headaches and Other Physical Symptoms including TMJ-Masticatory Disorders” (Wednesday, January 15, 2020) Presenters: Terry Carlson M. ED, Joseph Yousefian DMD MS, Kelley Fisher DDS (3 CE Credits) Irlen Syndrome could be hereditary or caused by trauma to brain, infection or immune system dysfunction. It is a visual-perceptual problem that prevents an estimated 14-18% of the population from being able to read efficiently. Irlen Syndrome is not a vision problem of the eye. Irlen Syndrome is the
