The Fire Within


As a three-time graduate of the Bale Doneen Preceptorship, and a patient of a Bale Doneen Cardiologist, I have fully embraced the role of treating periodontal disease as part of a treatment plan for the prevention of heart attack, stroke and diabetes.   If you are not yet convinced that periodontal inflammation is indeed a contributor to your patients’ overall inflammatory burden, this month’s Mastermind webinar will provide further proof.

On the other hand, if you are convinced, this webinar will reinforce what you already know and provide you with additional facts to better serve your patients.  Regardless, let me encourage you to join Inspired Hygiene’s own Stacy McCauley, RDH, MSDH and myself for an informative and motivating webinar on the topic of systemic inflammation and periodontal disease!

Hot and Bothered!
Science and Strategies for Oral and Systemic Inflammation
with Stacy McCauley, RDH, MSDH

Are you “sick and tired” of your patients being “sick and tired” as a result of their poor health? Inflammation doesn’t just wreak havoc on the oral cavity; inflammation can be detrimental to overall health as well.  How you take care of yourself not only impacts the mouth, but the entire body as well.  This program details specific strategies for optimum overall health, giving participants tangible action steps for decreasing their own inflammation.

After the completion of this CE program, attendees will be able to:

  • Explain the current science surrounding inflammatory diseases  
  • Differentiate between pro-inflammatory foods and anti-inflammatory foods
  • Understand how lifestyle choices influence both oral and systemic inflammation
  • Describe the cascade of clinical events that define periodontal disease infections along with therapeutic intervention strategies

With the heart of a coach and teacher, Stacy McCauley maintains her “cutting edge” on all things dental. Clients and audiences laud her as a gifted communications facilitator, impactful international speaker, high productivity practice coach and insightful writer. An Adjunct Assistant Professor at UNC Chapel Hill, where she also received her Master’s Degree, Stacy brings over 20 years of dental industry experience including clinician, corporate dental business, and most recently as a coach with Inspired Hygiene, a national hygiene coaching and practice consulting firm in Charlotte, NC. She is committed to empowering dental teams to blow open the doors of what’s possible in their practice.
