Many of my patients have poor oral hygiene and is reflected in the labs.

This a very thorough article. I have seen first hand how poor oral hygiene can affect quality indicators. We were doing oral rinses for a short duration. The important thing is to have pataients see their dentist / periodontist regularly. Thank you for the article and the CEU's!

I enjoyed this article very timely and makes sense. The correlation of disease and labs is not surprising. Thank you.

This is a great article which was an eye opener for how oral hygiene impacts the health of my patients. It gives a clear explanation on the relationship between laboratory outcomes and the clinical picture which we knew all along but this article hits the nail in the head. Thank you ANNA for offering this CEU.
