Excellent presentation! Thank you for this offering. As I nurse educator in a ADN program, I will be looking for more ways to introduce nutrition and oral care into assessment and care planning.

Amazing view on kidney health. An aspect I have never heard attributed to my patients comorbidities. I would like to socialite my dentist for a donation for Christmas for toothbrushes and paste for our 140 patients! Thanks! Annabel Campbell BSN RN

I am a RN who has 22 years of dental expierence and I can not express how happy I am that someone is finally addressing this issue. You just dont know how many times I have wanted to grab a roll of floss and start flossing people's teeth. Thank You for brining this to our attention.
