A growing body of evidence now shows the direct link between nutrition and oral health. However, many dental professionals feel inadequately prepared to effectively counsel patients on healthy eating. This informative and fact-filled lecture will explore how macronutrients, micronutrients, glycemic index/load, dietary patterns and sugar substitutes impact oral health, periodontal disease and overall health. Learn the cutting-edge science behind the recommendations.

Learning objectives:

  • Understand the role of macronutrients in health and chronic disease.
  • Be able to identify the key components of glycemic index and load.
  • Be familiar with the dietary inflammatory index and how to use it.
  • Be able to counsel patients about sugar and sugar substitutes.

This course is designed for the entire dental team.
