approach in our day to day practice?

Advanced Inflammation & Infection Workshop

Coming Fall 2024

We know that systemic inflammation is the primary factor in chronic breakdown of our total health.

Dental professionals require the tools and knowledge to effectively evaluate, diagnose, and treat various local and systemic inflammatory disorders.
