Many Americans are familiar with Dr. Mehmet Oz, who began his television career providing medical advice on The Oprah Show and currently hosts his own daytime program. Now, Oz will be collaborating with the American Dental Association (ADA) through the website Sharecare.com, which allows users to submit health-related questions to doctors and access expert research.
The online resource was originally launched in 2010 and covers a total of 48 health topics, including cancer, physical fitness and mental illness.
"Sharecare's partnership with the ADA completes a necessary circle in total health as we learn more and more the importance of oral health in overall wellness. Sharecare will offer a platform for the ADA to provide essential information from multiple points of view and provide consumers with vital resources," said Oz.
Convenient access to professional medical advice may be beneficial for many individuals who do not have health or dental insurance.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, only 30 percent of individuals who directly purchase health insurance have coverage for dental expenses, compared to 80 percent of those who participate in programs through their employers.
