Tampa Bay/Hudson, Florida - Regional Medical Center Bayonet Point continues its popular Tuesday Tutorials with "Your Teeth Matter: Integrating Oral Health & Primary Care" on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, at 11:30 am at the Rao Musunuru, MD Conference Center, 14100 Yosemite Drive, Hudson, Florida 34667 (back campus of the hospital). This tutorial will be conducted by Delisa Heron, MD, Premier Community HealthCare, Chief Medical Officer, and Jose Peralta, DDS, Premier Community HealthCare, Dental & Associate Medical Director.
Medical and oral healthcare operate in parallel, often separate universes. However, new models of care include the integration of primary care and oral healthcare. Those who attend this tutorial will learn why oral healthcare is vital to overall general health and what you can do to make the connection between medical and dental care on your own. Those who attend will also learn about a local community resource, Premier Community HealthCare, and its Medical-Dental Integration program. This free lunch and learn will help the attendees understand how medical and dental integration is advancing overall health and wellness by increasing oral health literacy in primary care.
Registration and lunch are at 11:30 and the tutorial begins at noon.
