As a husband and wife team at the founding meeting for the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) meeting, Barbara McClatchie, DDS and Eric Goulder, MD, FACC were called the "match made in heaven" for medical-dental collaboration. At the time, Dr. Barbara McClatchie was a dentist in Worthington, Ohio educating herself on the expanding scientific evidence of the oral systemic connection and implementing this cutting edge science to help her patients. Dr. Eric Goulder at the time, was practicing standard of care cardiology in a hospital setting in Marietta, Ohio.
At that meeting, while listening to Dr. Bradley Bale and Dr. Amy Doneen speak on The BaleDoneen Method, their whole future shifted and they knew they needed to collaborate for the benefit of their community. The BaleDoneen Method is a science-based methodology that is medically proven and accepted to both prevent and reverse heart attacks, strokes, and many other chronic conditions such as dementia, type 2 diabetes, erectile dysfunction, and kidney disease. This method is based on the fact that inflammation is the common pathway that drives the arterial disease process. There are dozens of root causes of inflammation, as outlined by The BaleDoneen Method, three of which must be treated by a dentist, specifically a dentist that understands and practices with an oral-systemic approach. BaleDoneen research is the first to show that these pathogenic oral bacteria are directly linked to arterial health and can cause heart attacks and strokes. In fact, 50% of heart attacks and strokes are triggered by oral bacteria that live in your mouth. In order to provide a guarantee of arterial wellness, there must be medical and dental collaboration to treat these three root causes.
Therefore, the Heart Attack and Stroke Prevention Center of Central Ohio was opened in 2017, the first center in the nation to have a cardiologist and dentist practicing together under one roof.
