Henry Schein develops wellness program for dental patients

Henry Schein has launched Total Health Beyond the Mouth, an integrated wellness and education program that informs patients of the integral link between oral health and total health.

The program is also designed to help dental professionals uncover potential systemic health problems, including periodontal disease, oral cancer, sleep disorders, heart disease, and diabetes, in their patients.

The program includes the following:

  • The Total Health Checklist, which, together with screening and diagnostics, assists dental professionals in assessing a patient's oral health, its impact on their total health, and uncovering health problems.
  • The Total Health Brochure, an educational tool for patients that describes the integral relationship between oral health and total health, the significance of periodontal disease, and the close links between other health conditions and oral health.
  • If any potential issues are uncovered through the dental team's review of the checklist, the patient is provided with a laminated Total Health Patient Guide prior to a discussion about further screening and treatment options.

The program was developed in collaboration with the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health, an organization of healthcare leaders and health professionals dedicated to the relationship of oral health and whole body health.
