6 Take Home Points 1. The population is getting older and more diverse, leading to different disease patterns, care giving behavior and ability to pay 2. Consumers are becoming more astute purchasers of health care and seeking value for their spending 3. An increasing number of dentists are being trained, but mounting debt and changing demographics are altering the practice choices for new dentists

7 4. Pressures are growing for an expanded dental team to provide preventive and restorative services 5. Care is being integrated within “Patient centered medical homes “ in medicine but inclusion of dental care servicers has been slow.

8 Conclusion Given the link between oral health and overall health, there is much promise for integrating dental services into overall health services. However, there is little evidence to suggest that the integration of dental services is little more than a possibility at this time.

9 Anthony Van Leewenhoeck 1673 Developed a microscope and described “many little living animalcules very prettily a moving ”

10 Dr WD Miller “ The mouth is a focus of infection where microorganisms or their waste products obtain entrance to parts of the body adjacent to or remote from the mouth”

11 Dr Thomas Hartzell At the 1916 National Dental Association meeting, Dr Hartzell described how “neglected teeth act as a gateway for deadly germs into the system”.

12 Dr Weston Price

13 Authored Dental Infections Oral & Systemic Dental Infections and the Degenerative Diseases Fundamentals of Oral Expressions of Dental Infections

14 Dr Bob Barkley

15 Dr Barkley spoke of the necessity of treating patients as total beings. “The new information on disease control has made patients responsible for their oral health and therefore it is our responsibility and obligation to involve patients in a health story. My office needs to be primarily a place of oral health education. Shifting offices from case centered to patient centered connecting with patients through empathy, patience and compassion. Coined the term “co-diagnosis”

16 DR Paul Keyes NIH researcher

17 Paul Keyes DDS First to use the term dental plaque First to show a direct relationship between microbial dental plague and periodontitis First to show microbial specificity in dental caries development First to document infectious spread of dental caries First to document the infectious spread of periodontal pathogens Formulated 1% sodium fluoride Invented vinyl tray applicators for topical fluoride

18 The 4 Eras of Dentistry

19 ERA 1 40’s 50’s 60’s Very much problem focused Patients went to the dentist when they had a problem…when they were in pain If you have this type of patients in your patient, who can still meet them where they are and help move them toward total care

20 ERA 2 Late 60’s and 70’s Dr Bob Barkley A philosophy of comprehensive care that focused on diagnosis,prevention, education, and relationship building. People were beginning to get the message that you needed to have your teeth “cleaned” on a regular basis in order to be healthy

21 “Complete dentistry is giving the patient the opportunity to do all of the work that you have diagnosed at their own pace within their financial and psychological comfort zone even if it takes years to accomplish” Thomas Larkin DDS The Dental Entrepreneur
