Scientific evidence that oral and overall health are interrelated compels us to think differently, and change the way we care for people. The best way to do this is to create and present well researched and novel educational programs, and share with generosity the resources that offer healthcare providers the greatest opportunity to impact patients’ lives by re-connecting the mouth to the rest of the body.
Just Ask Campaign
The 'Just Ask' campaign is an innovative group of enduring resources which are specifically designed to increase the awareness of the significance of periodontal disease within the greater healthcare community and build referral networks. Working with an award winning medical illustrator and peer reviewers, Casey Hein & Associates developed these novel and beautifully illustrated resources to educate patients about periodontal-systemic links, and place into the hands of dentists and dental hygienists the risk assessment tools they need to screen patients for chronic diseases associated with periodontal disease. Other resources include referral forms to make it easy for physicians, physicians' assistants, nurses, pharmacists, diabetes educators and other non-dental healthcare providers to screen patients for periodontal disease and refer them directly to dental practices for periodontal evaluations. These tools are great resources for progressive practitioners who are looking for new ideas and a unique way to build collaboration between dentistry and medicine.
