From Old to New in Dentistry-There is More than a Brush/Floss Approach to Oral Health




Attend this program as a Live Interactive Webinar or Live at our School

2 CEUs  – Good for the whole dental team!


Course Description:

There is so much that we are not formally taught about oral health. Some of these things affect our patients positively, some negatively. There is much more to avoiding tooth decay than brushing and flossing. This class will discuss the role that nutrition, blood chemistry, hormones and vitamins play. You will also learn new concepts such as teeth reflexology, leaky mouth, oral probiotics, remineralizing teeth, hydroxyapatite versus fluoride and much more. Some of these concepts are rarely discussed but they are not really new. Some date back centuries!

Instructor Anabela Bacchione, RDH, NTP, Anabela Bacchione has been a Registered Dental Hygienist since 1990.  Realizing the important role that good nutrition plays in oral health, she returned to school in 2007 to study at the Nutritional Therapy Association, a board-certified nutrition program based out of Olympia, WA.  For over 8 years, she has worked as a Nutritional Therapy Practitioner (NTP) for private clients as well as for a large DMD practice in northern NJ where she is the Holistic Nutritionist on staff. She also lectures frequently, is a member of multiple health-related organizations, operates a private traditional food cooperative, and keeps up-to-date on nutrition and integrative medicine through attending numerous seminars and symposiums each year.
