TORONTO—OraVital will be kicking off its 2017 KOL Access Webinar Series with two pioneers of the oral-systemic health movement—Drs. Bradley Bale and Amy Doneen, the authors of  the book “Beat the Heart Attack Gene”. 

Long-time advocates of the critical role that dental professionals play in the prevention of heart attacks and strokes, Bale and Doneen recently co-authored an article with Dr. David Vigerust that will be published in the Postgraduate Medical Journal. The article, “High-Risk Periodontal Pathogens Contribute to the Pathogenesis of Atherosclerosis”, was published online by the British Medical Journal.

“This is a ground-breaking report that further validates the oral-systemic health link in general and more specifically, the perio-cardio link. The PGMJ/BMJ manuscript clearly states, ‘periodontal disease due to high risk pathogens is a cause of arterial disease.’ Now more than ever, dental clinicians can and should strengthen their commitment identifying and managing this form of periodontal disease," said OraVital CEO Dr. Jim Hyland.

Because of the complexity of the topic and because atherosclerosis is the largest cause of death and disability in North America, Drs. Bale and Doneen will present their findings in a two-part CE webinar on Feb. 9 and March 9.
