Local Dentist Teaches Other Dentists How to Save the Lives of Their Patients
Date:11/25/2009

Dentistry is evolving beyond the treatment of cavities and the glamour of smile makeovers. In fact, it is looking at these more traditional practices in a whole new light. While the preservation and beauty of teeth is what the public expects form dentistry, we know that dentists are now, more than ever, an important part of the medical team. The increasingly important link between oral and systemic health is being strengthened every day by new and ongoing research.

(PRWEB) November 25, 2009 -- Dr Lisa Marie Samaha was a featured speaker at a ground-breaking dental symposium on the latest concepts in the Mouth-Body Connection. The Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics hosted an international symposium in Scottsdale, Arizona, on leading- edge periodontal therapies that allow dentists to save the lives of their patients.

Dentistry is evolving beyond the treatment of cavities and the glamour of smile makeovers. In fact, it is looking at these more traditional practices in a whole new light. While the preservation and beauty of teeth is what the public expects form dentistry, we know that dentists are now, more than ever, an important part of the medical team. The increasingly important link between oral and systemic health is being strengthened every day by new and ongoing research.

By diagnosing and treating periodontal disease with advanced, non-surgical techniques, dentists are in a better position than ever before to have a significant impact on the prevention of heart attack, stroke, diabetes, pulmonary and kidney diseases, Alzheimer's disease, pregnancy complications and cancers of many kinds.

Offering their patients the ability to smile as a result of a longer, healthier life is where dentists can further impact and increase the value of dental care to their patients. No other medical professional is in the position that dentists are in today with regard to the prevention and early diagnosis of life- threatening disease.

Dr Rick Coker, Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics Board member has said, "Today, dentistry is no longer about treating cavities and giving patients a new smile - it is about saving lives." The Academy of Comprehensive Esthetics is a community of dedicated dental professionals who strive to provide excellent patient care and who, thorough education, sharing and mentoring, help each other succeed.

According to Dr Lisa Marie Samaha of Port Warwick Dental Arts and Founder and Director of the Perio Arts Institute, (a nationally recognized teaching and research center for periodontal disease treatment), "There has never been a more exciting time to practice dentistry. For the first time in the history of dentistry, this symposium is bringing together hundreds of dental professionals to explore the most leading-edge research, technology and concepts regarding the Mouth-Body Connection."
