The Oral-Systemic Connection & Why Aren’t All Dental Claims Paid?

Tuesday, May 25th , 2021


The GPAHU is pleased to offer this 2 credit Continuing Education course presented by

Valerie Fleming, RDH, United Concordia’s Oral Wellness Consultant

United Concordia’s Oral Wellness Consultant, Valerie Fleming, RDH. Your smile is one of your most valuable assets. However, good oral health is more than just your smile and benefits both your smile and your whole body. This presentation covers a range of dental health topics including: prevention and treatment of common dental diseases, keeping your mouth healthy, fear of the dentist, the mouth-body connection, and strategies for incorporating dental health into overall wellness programs.


Additionally, Dental benefits are different than medical benefits and most of us do what our dentists say without question.  Everybody wants to think that their dentists are looking out for the patients’ best interests.  Yet are all of those services really necessary?  If my mouth is healthy, do I really need x-rays every 6 months or 12 months?  If that cracked tooth is not causing any problems, do I really need an extensive crown on it?  What happens when my dentist bills for a service that is not appropriate, or not necessary, and who makes that determination?  These questions will be answered and much more.
