Perio Protect, LLC, will celebrate its 10th anniversary at its annual meeting in Las Vegas, Nev., at Green Valley Ranch April 25 to 26.

Keynote speakers are cardiology team Bradley Bale and Amy Doneen who work closely with dentists to help decrease inflammation and thus reduce the risks of heart attacks and strokes. Treating periodontal disease can decrease systemic inflammation and that decreasing systemic inflammation can help prevent heart attacks and strokes.

They routinely refer to dentists who will prescribe Perio Trays® for their cardiac patients and urge their colleagues to do the same. More about this connection will be explained and discussed at the annual meeting.  

The Bale/Doneen Method™ is a preventative treatment approach for heart attacks, ischemic strokes, and type 2 diabetes focused on reducing plaque present in the arterial bed. Understanding that periodontal inflammation may trigger and contribute to plaque accumulation, they urge dentists and physicians to collaborate for optimal patient care.

They will present Saturday, April 26, about their approach and the potential for dentists to develop stronger physician referral networks.

Perio Protect 2014 includes a full scientific course with Perio Protect training Friday, April 25, and a parallel track for dental teams to learn more about the science and practice of the Perio Protect approach. The scientific course includes new microbiological and chronic oral wound care information.
