Dr. McClatchie is requesting your expertise in optimal co-management of patients. As an oral systemic dentist, she realizes the importance of collaborating with the attending medical doctors for the patient’s overall wellness. Level A research supports the oral systemic link and the improvement of systemic conditions with improved oral health.
Statistics support that more than 80% of our patients have an oral infection contributing to systemic inflammation. With proper diagnosis and treatment, mild oral infection can be reduced and controlled, reducing the systemic inflammation.
Dr. McClatchie’s office has implemented saliva testing to determine Interlueken-6 presence and/or the quantity and quality of bacteria that is causing the oral infection. With the results and knowledge of the cause of the infection, her team can treat each patient more specifically and successfully.
Any insights, recommendations, or additional information you can provide on the medical side is greatly appreciated to ensure optimal patient management in this case.
