Oral Infections and Overall Health: An Emerging Scientific Journey
Michael Glick,Friday, February 7
8:00 am - 8:45 am
The association between oral infections and overall health has been discussed and debated for more than 2,000 years, yet there are no clear answers or explanations that satisfy both researchers and clinicians. From simple observational studies to complicated genomic tests and other technologic advances, both answers and questions are emerging that will help us understand this association and eventually benefit our patients. This presentation will challenge participants to look at the oral-systemic health connection with both skepticism and confidence.
