DENTAID continues to support professional training in Dentistry and is once again collaborating with the Universidad de Santiago de Compostela (USC) in the upcoming Periodontology Refresher Course. The programme is set to commence in November and will run through the school year to June 2017 with a total of 7 training modules. (See list).
Perio·Aid is the first antiseptic combination containing Chlorhexidine + Cetylpyridinium chloride, indicated as an adjuvant to the in-office treatment and control of periodontal and/or peri-implant disease.
Periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis and periodontitis, are generally considered chronic diseases that are infectious and inflammatory in nature, located in the tooth support tissues and which potentially cause the loss of teeth. Their primary cause is the accumulation of oral biofilm, both on the inner and the outer surfaces of the gums.
DENTAID launches a new communication channel with customers
With the intention of bridging the gap to better understand people’s needs and offer them targeted solutions, DENTAID has activated a new communication channel through its website www.dentaid.es.
The principal categories available for inquiry include products, administration, customer service, technical service, Aula DENTAID, media and medical consultations.
As it is easily accessible, intuitive and welcoming, this new tool, which is similar to a chat, allows for faster communication between both parties. Each query is answered by a team of specialists in each field who closely follows up every request in order to resolve any possible doubt.
Cardiologists and dentists have joined forces to work toward the prevention of cardiovascular and periodontal diseases. Existing evidence linking gum disease to heart disease has driven professionals from these fields to create a consensus statement addressed to practitioners from both disciplines.
With the aim of creating a framework for cardiologists, dentists and patients for the prevention and treatment of both diseases, the most prominent cardiovascular health institution (the Spanish Society of Cardiology – SEC) and the most important periodontal health society (the Spanish Society of Periodontology and Osseointegration – SEPA), have come together backed by the sponsorship of DENTAID to work on the first consensus document offering guidelines and recommendations for professionals and patients.
This consensus statement was presented to the media this past September 22nd in Malaga, coinciding with heart week, in order to raise awareness of this relationship and to offer practical advice on prevention for the general public and for cardiologists and dentists themselves. [Leer más]
