Dental Health And Wellness: New Findings And Research

Monday March 5, 2012: 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm -- Downtown Library: Multi-Purpose Room

Poor oral health impacts diet and nutrition and can affect social activities, such as school and work. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, there are also important associations between poor oral health and diseases, such as diabetes.

Join us for a discussion about the importance of dental health in overall wellness, and learn about the latest research that provides new information about dental health practices. Experts from the UM School of Dentistry will share new knowledge gained from the latest research - and how it makes its way into new clinical therapies, while supporting the evaluation of existing therapies in order to improve oral, dental and craniofacial health.

This event is co-sponsored by the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research and the UM Taubman Health Sciences Library.
