The first presidential debate highlighted the increasing cost of healthcare and pointed out the Cleveland Clinic as a successful, well-managed model of care. Dr. Dan Sindelar provides supplementary healthcare to his St. Louis patients by offering web-based Cleveland Clinic Wellness programs.
St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) October 09, 2012
During the first presidential debate, both candidates referenced prevention as a key component to improving the current healthcare situation. Both President Obama and Republican candidate Mitt Romney cited the Cleveland Clinic as an example of one of the world's leading healthcare institutions at the forefront of this preventative movement with its excellence in medical research and patient care.
Dr. Dan Sindelar (twitter @drdansindelar), current president of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), provides supplementary care in his dental practice using web-based Cleveland Clinic Wellness programs. These address stress reduction, sleep hygiene, smoking cessation, and diet and nutrition. Sindelar Dental was the first dental practice in the St. Louis area to offer Cleveland Clinic Wellness programs.
“When we look beyond our patients’ mouths, we are able to address many of the factors that contribute to poor overall health and subsequent healthcare costs,” said Dr. Sindelar. “I highly recommend the Cleveland Clinic Wellness programs because I have had enormous success with them in my practice. We’ve been able to see a marked effect not only on patients’ oral health but also on the quality of their lives.”
Significant scientific research demonstrates the effects of oral health on overall health, and it seems the effects do not end there. A 2011 study by CIGNA showed that periodontal disease treatment can save a diabetic patient upwards of $2,500 per year in overall healthcare costs.
“The key is oral inflammation,” says Dr. Sindelar. “When gum disease is present, the gums become inflamed, which then spreads throughout the entire body, affecting risk for heart attack, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and cancer, to name a few.”
At Sindelar Dental, Dr. Sindelar (facebook) and his team pride themselves on offering more than just traditional dentistry. In addition to offering complementary Cleveland Clinic Wellness programs, they provide sleep apnea testing and treatment; antioxidant testing and nutritionals; oral inflammation reduction and treatment; and reducing health issues associated with broken and fractured teeth and TMJ/TMD.
