Enhancing patient awareness of the connection between oral health and overall health through chairside education

The mouth is often considered a gateway to overall health, and oral health professionals play a crucial role in recognizing and addressing health issues. As we see patients more frequently than other healthcare providers, we have the opportunity to make a difference in our patients’ well-being.

Celebrating World Oral Health Day with Tracey Jacobs, BSDH, RDH, we acknowledge the importance of collaboration between oral health professionals and other healthcare providers. In the past, it was common to have to chase down specialists for medical clearance for patients, but now oral clinicians are increasingly recognized for their role in the overall treatment of patients.

The oral-systemic link is gaining respect and importance in the healthcare community, and World Oral Health Day is an opportunity to celebrate this progress. It is essential to remind patients of the significant impact their oral health has on their overall health.

Tracey shares her strategies for educating patients about the connection between oral health and overall well-being. By highlighting the relationship between oral health and various health issues, we can help patients understand the importance of taking care of their mouths for their overall health.

Taking a closer look at figure 1, we can see examples of health issues related to oral health, emphasizing the importance of maintaining good oral hygiene for overall well-being.
