Transform the Way You Heal Your Patients: The Role of Nutrition in Periodontal Therapy

Transform the way you heal your patients

Was delivered by my good friend and fellow founding member of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health Lisa Marie Samaha, DDS, FAGD.

Lisa Marie has extensive training in the field of integrative medicine, with an emphasis on advanced medical and genetic testing, and nutritional physiology to deliver true preventive medicine and healing to her patients.

Attendees learned why Dr. Samaha is noted for her enthusiastic and inspiring presentations to medical and dental audiences worldwide.  During the Q&A Session, Lisa Marie agreed to extend a most attractive offer for practice perfection attendees only – a way to experience Lisa Marie up close and personal.

For nearly four decades Dr. Samaha has based her practice on the principles of Total Body Wellness through Complete Health Dentistry.  Her pioneering practice focuses on the advanced, non-surgical treatment of periodontal disease, and all aspects of the Oral Systemic Link.

Observing a significant disconnect between the scientific research and its application in the clinical setting, in 2007 Dr Samaha founded the Perio Arts Institute.  She presents evidence-based, clinical protocols for the diagnosis and non-surgical treatment of periodontal disease.  Her multi-faceted approach empowers general dentists, periodontists, and their teams to seamlessly transform themselves  into true, wellness-oriented practitioners of dental medicine.

She is a 1982 graduate of the Medical College of Virginia, Virginia Commonwealth University.

Attendance and satisfactory completion of a quiz and evaluation qualifies attendees to receive 1.5 hours of continuing education credit.

Over the past couple of decades, non-surgical periodontal therapy has been an often talked about topic which has become more popular than ever as we move into the realm of oral-systemic care in dentistry.

  6. What about filing of medical insurance for perio treatment?
