Dr. Barbara McClatchie is recognized as an authority in the oral systemic health field. She has developed a network of like-minded healthcare providers to improve the health community. Together, they bridge the gap between medicine and dentistry to help patients live healthier lives.
As a founding member of The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) and preceptor of the Bale/Doneen Preceptorship Method, Dr. McClatchie has studied and applied a strong oral systemic focus to her patient care. She encourages physicians to become active participants in the complete health community, by incorporating complete health histories, screenings, and comprehensive oral assessments into their patients’ regular check-ups. Now research has shown that periodontal disease is now CAUSAL to cardiovascular disease and not just associated with cardiovascular disease.
