Welcome to the show notes and say hello again to another episode with Dr. Timothy Donley DDS MSD, a periodontist and implantologist based in Bowling Green, KY. Dr. Donley is a highly accomplished practitioner with an impressive educational background, including the University of Notre Dame, Georgetown University School of Dentistry, and Indiana University for his specialty training. He is an avid researcher, lecturer, and author on topics of interest to clinical dentists and hygienists. Dr. Donley strongly advocates for dentistry to occupy its rightful place in the healthcare arena, and his current focus is on introducing the new wellness narrative of dentistry. We are excited to have Philips Sonicare as our sponsor for this episode, which was recorded live at their booth in Vancouver, Canada. Joined on the episode are
Cindy Sensabaugh, RDH, MS the Sr. Manager, Professional Relations & Education and Lindsey Dalley the Professional Education Manager of Canada. Both sharing some insightful tips on the new advancements from Philips Oral Healthcare, specifically the Philips Sonicare Power Flosser 3000. we discuss the limitations of conventional floss (Dr. Donley shares his viewpoints on flossing near the end of the episode.) We discuss the challenges patient face and how they are managed by us their trusted dental professionals.
For too long, dentistry has been viewed as a separate entity from the rest of healthcare. But the reality is that oral health is directly connected to overall health. Research has shown that periodontal disease is linked to a number of systemic diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and even some cancers. It's time for dentistry to take its rightful place on the healthcare stage and be recognized for the critical role it plays in overall health and wellness.
Dr. Donley shares his views with us on assessment and biofilm management around implant structures and natural teeth as a synopsis to his lecture delivered earlier in the day.
