Does Your Family Physician Talk To Your Dentist?

Posted on October 26, 2010 | in Dental Care, Oral Systemic Dentistry | by

Probably not – so it is up to us as patients to play intermediary.

We’ve been waiting for this for some time. In order for physicians to best serve our communities, it is important for all of our medical professionals to have a complete blueprint of our individual health – past, present, and future.

Welcome to Health Care 2.0!

A group of healthcare professionals from across the U.S. has formed the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), which aims to bring together medical professionals from all fields[1].

In order to do this we need communicate, participate, and share our health care information amongst all parties responsible for it – our doctors, dentists, caregivers, specialists…etc.

Research arms us with the information necessary to retain our overall health, and technology allows us to communicate with each other and share that info. This further enables us to develop the tools and tests necessary to advance our understanding of the mouth-health to overall health (and vice versa) connection.
