Did you know that periodontal disease may put you at risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease? Your patients might not. According to recent research published in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, the bacteria Porphyromonas gingivalis spread to the brains of mice who suffer from gum disease. In fact, researchers recently began trials on a vaccine for P. gingivalis, which could potentially reduce or even eliminate Alzheimer’s, if the link between them proves to be true.
How can you utilize developing research like this to set yourself ahead as a dentist? Position yourself as an expert.
As a dentist, you have accumulated a massive wealth of knowledge — and not just in dentistry. Why don’t you share it, to both you and your patients’ benefit? By taking the opportunity to educate your patients on recent advancements in technology, oral health care, or even their overall well-being, you will grant credibility to your dentistry and build meaningful connections with your community. When your potential patients can clearly see your commitment to their oral health and their actual lives, they won’t forget you. In fact, they’ll choose you, based on your expertise, your compassion, and your dedication to their care.
