Advancements in medical technology are extending our lives, and we are aging more diversely than ever. Yet, many of us endure or will endure chronic diseases. This course explains in detail how to relate to those in the medical profession, how to advocate for better patient care, as well as what to say and not say to someone who is ill. We’ll look specifically at how to help someone who is in pain, and how to intervene with those that are non-adherent with medical advice. This course will also help caretakers identify if they are “caring too much,” with guidance regarding how to set boundaries.
Tooth decay could be a precursor to many health problems – notably obesity, diabetes, and heart disease. Dental decay is the first to develop, and it predicts these and many other illnesses. That is because periodontitis, excess weight, hypertension, and other ailments such as hemorrhoids and deep venous thrombosis, often stem from the same cause: poor dietary choices. All dentists see the same patients again and again, suffering from plaque, cavities, infection – all of which are needless, preventable, and reversible. In this course, Dr. Somborac makes the connection between overall health and dental health. He describes how to prevent tooth decay and health decline, through easy-to-apply guidance you can use to help save patients` teeth and their lives.
