Today, more and more dental care providers believe their services are essential to the maintenance of a patient's overall health, meaning some dentists and doctors need to communicate with one another.
Some patients experience health issues that affect more than one part of their body, and many of these people are thus forced to visit different kinds of healthcare professionals. However, referring patients to other doctors for different services can be costly and time-consuming, which is why Drs. Lawrence and Cheryl Kerr created ClickCare, according to Fox News.
ClickCare is a web-based software service that helps doctors communicate, says the news source. "You need Ear, Nose and Throat doctors, Plastic Surgery and Dentistry, Orthodontist, Social Workers, Speech Pathologist and Audiologists and everybody has to work together because one person's treatment can interfere with the other," said Lawrence Kerr.
The American Dental Association claims oral and systemic health are interrelated. For example, periodontitis is associated with health problems such as cardiovascular disease, stroke and pneumonia. The Mayo Clinic says the infection can be avoided by brushing and flossing regularly. Visiting the dentist for professional teeth cleanings can also help.
