VIDEO Joining the Fight for Oral Health (NCCPA Foundation)

Oral disease has been a hidden threat to our overall health and wellbeing for decades. Its important to have a focus on oral issues, because oral problems (gum disease, dental decay) are preventable. This is a chronic disease that we haven't fully paid attention to for a long time.  And, there is something everyone on the health team can do in the fight for good oral health. 

This video, produced by NCCPA, the National Commission on Certification of Physician Assistants, in association the National Interprofessional Initiative on Oral Health, shares the perspectives of primary care professionals who regularly include oral health in patient evaluations.
