A Tale of Two Hygienists Podcast

Nov 29, 2021

On this week’s episode of Fast Facts - Perio Edition, Katrina Sanders, RDH starts a new conversation around Periodontitis as a Manifestation of Systemic Disease. These patients go beyond your diabetic patients, your cancer patients or your patients with cardiovascular disease. Tune in over the next few weeks as Katrina unpacks Periodontitis as a Manifestation of Systemic Disease. 




“These are patients in which the disease process that they're presenting with whatever that disease may be, that particular disease is a causative agent that the patient will experience periodontal disease.”


“These systemic diseases that, although rare, play a significant role in the course of periodontitis, have a negative impact on our periodontal supporting tissues, and ultimately, if an individual presents with any one of these types of systemic diseases, the likelihood that they will experience periodontal disease is extremely high.”
