The time is now for medical-dental collaboration targeting periodontal disease and systemic diseases and conditions. But how do dentists and hygienists do this? The evidence is compelling that overall health can be directly related to controlling infection and inflammation within the oral cavity. Periodontal disease is perhaps the greatest contributor to this threat.
Casey Hein’s presentations empower the whole dental team to embrace the significance of periodontal-systemic interrelationships and progressively incorporate this science into everyday patient care.

Casey Hein first began speaking about periodontal-systemic links in 2003, when this body of science was emerging. Since that time, evidence of the role of periodontal disease in amplifying systemic inflammation and increasing the risk for chronic diseases has strengthened. Yet, clinicians are not quite certain how to integrate this information into everyday patient care.
Casey’s programs present new models of care and collaboration that practitioners can implement immediately. They are the result of many years of clinical consulting, research, participation on scientific boards and in consensus groups, and her experience in building an environment for medical-dental collaboration at the University of Manitoba.
Utilizing sophisticated animations, case studies and storytelling of professional experiences, her programs facilitate greater understanding of periodontal-systemic links, stimulate ideas, fuel lively discussions and empower participants.
Casey is an Assistant Clinical Professor in the Department of Periodontics and Director of Education of the International Centre for Oral-Systemic Health in the College of Dentistry; and the Director of Continuing Professional Development for Dentistry and Dental Hygiene, in the Rady Faculty of Health Sciences, at the University of Manitoba (Canada). She is also an internationally recognized speaker and published author, a consultant to the dental industry, advisory/scientific boards, professional associations, and a reviewer for scientific publications.
