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.
Speakers include Janet Kinney RDH, MS, Assistant Professor of Dentistry, UM Department of Periodontics and Oral Medicine; Research Fellow, Michigan Center for Oral Health Research (MCOHR) and Jill Bashutski DDS, MS, Assistant Professor of Dentistry, UM Department of Periodontics and Oral Medicine.
