Time to Act: Young Adults, Periodontal Disease & Blood Pressure

Join OHA and Midmark for a webinar on November 12 about teens, hypertension and blood pressure.

There is great evidence that periodontal disease often originates disproportionately in adolescents and can cause irreversible damage and chronic inflammation and thus severe long term risk of chronic disease. Also, there is great evidence that dentists are far more likely to see adolescents for preventative and non-acute care, as opposed to medical providers. Dentists are in a better position, with their access to healthy adolescents who are not in pain and without fever to capture an accurate blood pressure reading, they have the opportunity to get a true blood pressure baseline.
