SIXTH ANNUAL INTERPROFESSIONAL SYMPOSIUM

Does improved oral health truly improve systemic health and lower the cost of healthcare? Is it possible and advisable to practice in a way that blurs the line between medicine and dentistry? How do we advance practice models that blend oral and systemic health for the benefit of patients? How do we prepare students and practicing professionals for this future? Learn how to work more effectively with other systemic health providers to benefit the health and wellness of the patient.
