Integrative Dental Medicine with Dr. DeWitt Wilkerson

Integrative Dental Medicine emphasizes the golden opportunity for dental teams to learn the knowledge and skills to begin addressing the dental patient’s complete health.

For example, the most immediate essential of complete health is an open airway, proper breathing, and oxygen delivery to every cell.  It has become apparent in recent years that this is a very important subject in dentistry.  Not only is it possible to evaluate for breathing dysfunction that affects systemic health, but also to understand the key relationship between breathing dysfunction and dental malocclusion, tongue thrusting habits, clenching and bruxism, dental wear casued by abrasion and erosion, gastric reflux, and TMD symptoms--including sore muscles and joints, headaches, and cervical neck discomfort.  This covers many of the common issues confronted by every dentist.

By developing an integrative dental medicine approach in your practice, you will have the ability to expand your services, play a positive role in our current health care crisis, and collaborate with the larger medical community in your area.

Course objectives:

This program is focused on helping dentists identify the major risk factors of complete health using a practical cinical model for evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment.

A comprehensive “Integrative Dental Medicine Checklist” will be provided to simplify the learning of this subject and guide the clinical implementation on an individual patient basis.

The checklist will allow the whole dental team to feel confident in incorporating this new information into the patient evaluation process.
