Tony Hashemian, DDS.
Engaging Patients in Their Own Well-Being: A continuing challenge for many clinicians is how to help patients understand the importance of their oral health and to motivate patients to actively engage in and own their self-care. Dr. Hashemian will discuss the ease and efficacy of salivary ph testing as part of patient awareness and understanding, the science that links saliva ph to both oral and systemic health and research that supports health-based text-messaging to patients. He will provide approaches and insights that draw on new ways to impact patients to facilitate patient/provider partnerships.
