Creating Healthier Patients & Practices

We face a severe health crisis, that is a much larger pandemic than Covid19!

Our western lifestyle affects periodontal & periapical oral disease, vascular disease, breathing disordered sleep, GERD, dental malocclusions, bruxism, poor diets, lack of exercise, excessive weight, high blood pressure, diabetes, smoking, and stress… all examples of the co-morbidities which put every one of us at risk in a viral world!

Dentistry is the medical specialty of oral medicine. Oral health is directly related to complete health: the oral-systemic connection.

We must ask: “How can we stand on the frontlines fighting the health crisis that is destroying our nation?” The answer is through developing a new model that integrates Dentistry & Medicine = Integrative Dental Medicine(IDM). This model is designed to create both healthier patients and practices($).

Dr. Witt Wilkerson will present his 10 years of research and clinical implementation, the subject of his best selling book entitled, “The Shift, the Dramatic Movement Toward Health Centered Dentistry”. Lora Hooper, RDH will present her 20+ years of research and clinical experience, including extensive work in a practice focused on salivary testing, advanced non-surgical periodontal therapy, and cardio-vascular health.

Together, Witt and Lora will lead us into the future of Dentistry’s golden opportunity, to become the leading medical specialty that stands on the frontlines, addressing complete health. Don’t miss this unique learning experience, that will dramatically influence your own health, and will significantly impact your patients and practice!
