The Future for RDH's is Bright!

The future for dental hygienists has never looked so bright. I can feel it in my bones.

If I were to anticipate what the future will bring, this is what I see;

There is going to be a heightened acknowledgement for our role in reducing both oral and systemic inflammation.

Dentistry, medicine and the public will thoroughly understand the level of our expertise, and our mission to assess the "whole person" not just their oral cavity. Leading to an awareness of the role dental hygienists have, that being, a focus on oral and general health outcomes.  We are not procedure driven, we are outcome driven, as each client is unique.

Health care professionals in all areas of medicine will see the value in oral health assessments, and understand chronic inflammatory health conditions cannot be managed without managing oral inflammation.

We are going to continue to advocate for a standard of care that is more universal and comprehensive, leading to elevated health.

We are going to become one with the health care system and a branch of medicine that is specialized in managing vascular inflammation.

 Now doesn't this sound BRIGHT and exciting?

This is an amazing time to be an RDH, keep looking at the BIG picture and the overall impact we can make on someones health. We need to continue have a strong voice and advocate for what we believe in.

Yours Truly,

Lisa Hardill, RDH

Change is Needed to Save Lives; the role of dentistry and medicine

I was privileged to attend a recent course with Dr. Bale and Dr. Doneen focused on Heart Attack, Stroke and Oral Health. Bringing to the fore-front once again, the work dental professionals provide matters when it comes to cardiac health. The collaboration between medical and dental professionals is continuing to strengthen as science recognizes what is happening in the mouth directly impacts the rest of the body, and vice versa. Current research is demonstrating more than a casual association between oral health and cardiovascular health, with a direct cause and effect relationship. This means it's time to make a change! Screening for both diseases more aggressively and more frequently in both the medical and dental field is required. How does one impact the other? We know inflammation in the oral cavity will lead to ulcerations in the epithelium tissues, allowing bacteria to travel a distance systemically. The bacteria present in the oral cavity triggers the inflammator

Oral Health Information and Practice: It's never too early!

Dental Professionals should aim to teach soon-to-be parents about oral hygiene practices for their new baby even before baby arrives. It is common practice to make time to discuss the oral health status of a mother during pregnancy. As we are all familiar with the risks associated with poor oral health and pregnancy. However, we also need to make time to discuss the oral hygiene practices for the baby when he or she arrives.  Understanding even though infants do not have teeth they still need to keep their mouth clean, is a critical piece of communication. Educating on the earlier the oral hygiene habits are formed it can actually hep decrease the risk for future dental cavities is a motivating factor. This is hard for parents to wrap their head around because commonly they feel there is no risk if their baby does not have teeth. We need to explain to parents the biofilm (microscopic) that commonly appears on teeth can also accumulate on the tongue and gums whe
