The Heart of the Matter

Exploring the relationship between cardiovascular disease and oral care

We proudly present this digital event, consisting of a tri-part lecture and discussion. Our multidisciplinary expert team will reflect on the past, present, and possible future of caring for patients with cardiovascular disease and periodontitis. The eminent Lars Rydén, professor of cardiology at Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden, will be our moderator.


This will not be your ordinary online webinar – we are happy to present a very interactive symposium; discussions intertwined with presentations and questions from the audience. You will, amongst other things, hear about guidelines and how the relationship between cardiovascular disease and periodontal disease impacts patient care and treatment outcome. With a growing ageing population and an increase in lifestyle diseases, the knowledge from this symposium will truly be of use for you in your daily clinical practice.

 

This online symposium is suitable for dental professionals and students and will be held on the 10th of November 2022 at 5 A.M. AEDT. 
A recorded version of the event will be sent to everyone who has registered to view it on demand.
