Carol Wells, RDH
I graduated as a Dental Hygienist in 1977. I have worked in private practice from 1977 until 2007. During my career as a dental hygienist, I specialized as a Periodontal Co-Therapist, in a Preventive Dental Hygiene Practice. A Periodontal Co-Therapist looks at all the factors that contribute to infection of the gums, e.g., diabetes, heart disease etc. and works with the client to help them become healthier. My expertise is in understanding how the mouth can impact your overall health – The Oral Systemic Connection. I understand that Periodontal Disease is multi-factorial and there is a need to understand how Oral Health and Overall, Health needs to be addressed not only in the dental setting but in a medical setting as well.
