American Academy for Oral Systemic Health

Local dentist attends founding meeting for new national health organization AAOSH

October 25, 2010

Stevens Point, WI – Dr. Glen Magyera DDS and his two hygienists; Tami Weber RDH and Cathy Wininger RDH, just returned from Madison, Wisconsin, where dental leaders from all over the country convened over the weekend to hold the founding meeting for the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH).

Oral“The formation of this organization could not have come at a better time,” says Dr. Magyera. “More and more research just keeps pouring in that confirms all the connections between the health of the mouth and the resulting health of the body.”

The newly inaugurated AAOSH will bring together medical professionals from all fields and try to eliminate the tunnel vision that can exist between medical specialties. Members will commit themselves to working and learning together in the ultimate spirit of cooperation so that patients everywhere can enjoy the resulting benefits of improved general health, healing, longevity and wellness.

“When dentists and physicians work together, medical outcomes will be improved and lives will be lengthened,” states AAOSH President Dr. Chris Kammer. “Many people still don’t understand that good dental health can add years to your life, so one of our missions is to educate the public as well.”

Several nationally-known clinicians who attended the meeting gave presentations on the latest findings related to the seriousness of oral disease in America. One speaker revealed how a couple was not able to conceive a child until the mother’s rampant gum infection was put under control. Another speaker discussed how diabetes can make gum disease worsen, but that gum disease can also make diabetes worse – a vicious “circle of death” unless dentists and physicians unite and intervene.

In addition, advanced dental techniques and systems for treating periodontal disease and tooth decay were shared, as well as an extended program on the importance of nutrition.

The new organization has 50 founding members and anticipates rapid growth as more and more professionals absorb the data that demonstrates the relationship of mouth health to body health and vice versa.

“We’re excited about finally working closely with cardiologists, diabetic specialists, obstetricians and many more medical specialties,” explains Dr. Magyera. “AAOSH is all about opening those doors of communication and offering to help, so that we can contribute to the improved health for the patients we share.”

Dr. Glen Magyera practices at Advanced Cosmetic and Wellness Family Dentistry in Stevens Point Wisconsin, and is committed to advancing the dental profession for the benefit of his/her patients.
