For Medical and Dental Professionals:
Protecting our patients from life-threatening disease is a powerful dynamic best fulfilled by the professional collaboration of all medical and dental disciplines.
Our patients are becoming acutely aware of the interrelationship between periodontal disease and systemic disease through media reporting.
With serious systemic manifestations of oral disease being regularly reported in the medical and dental literature as well as the lay media, it is incumbent upon all health care professionals to have a clear understanding of the oral–systemic connection with regard to cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease (to include heart attack and stroke), diabetes, infertility, preterm birth, rheumatoid arthritis, kidney disease, dementia and Alzheimer’s disease, liver disease, pulmonary disease, certain cancers, and much more.
Without this knowledge firmly in the hands of physicians and other health care professionals, our patients’ health is at risk. It is through collaboration that we most successfully care for our mutual patients.
Dr. Samaha’s PerioPassion! Seminars allow healthcare professionals to assimilate current scientific knowledge on the oral/systemic link, which is critical to the safe and proactive daily care of their patients.
The Seminars are provided by accomplished speaker and author, Dr. Lisa Marie Samaha. Since 1982, Dr. Samaha has maintained her comprehensive, high-level private practice while researching, presenting and preparing a protocol for the comprehensive diagnosis and the conservative and successful nonsurgical treatment of periodontal disease. As a result of her four decades of clinical observations and extensive study of the scientific literature, her protocol is unprecedented in the dental field. Dr. Samaha is helping to establish a new standard-of-care in the field of dental medicine. For the safe and effective care of your patient, this is a standard of care with which all must become acquainted. In the words of a former U.S. Surgeon General, “You’re not healthy without good dental health.”
Dr. Samaha’s seminars are well-accepted as we all seek to find ways to work with our medical colleagues in improving our mutual patients’ systemic health. Her seminars are offered to colleagues who appreciate the dynamic relationship between oral and systemic health and are willing to become a part of this movement in collaborative, integrative, and functional medicine now embraced by leading-edge dental and other medical professionals around the globe.
