Topic: Four Patient Lifestyle Habits That Influence Healing
Instructor: Dr. Uche Odiatu
CE Credits Offered: 1.5 CE Credits
Your patients don’t leave their sleeping patterns (insomnia, apnea, snoring), physical fitness (or lack of) or eating patterns (mindless eating and evening feeding frenzies) or their stress management practices in the car before they sit in your chair. Just like you don’t leave your lifestyle problems at your office door. There’s irrefutable scientific evidence that these habits have the ability to ramp up inflammation or dial it down. Well adjusted, rested, physically active, healthy eating patients enjoy a physiology that supports a more positive response to your treatments. And as healthcare providers, we need to be good role models and “walk the talk.” In this session, find out how you can be a better dentist by being healthier yourself, and how to talk to your patients about lifestyle changes that will make a big difference.
- Understand why your sedentary patients don’t heal as well as your active living patients.
- Discover how eating habits have the ability to dial down or ramp up inflammation.
- Develop a conversation style to positively impact our patients at the new patient or recare exam.
