Violence and abuse is a global public health epidemic that can have a
significant impact on an individual’s health throughout a person’s lifetime. The
physical effects can include chronic facial pain, headaches and cardiovascular
disease, among others. In terms of mental health, many victims of violence or abuse suffer
from PTSD, depression, anxiety and/or substance abuse. As dental providers
shift to a more person-centered approach, it is important to understand the
enduring impact that violence and abuse can have on individuals.
Join us in this follow-up webinar to explore a non-invasive method for characterizing risk predictors of stress and their impact on oral and overall health. Leslie Halpern, D.D.S., M.P.H., will discuss methods of integrating violence and abuse related education into dental curricula to help tomorrow’s providers better identify victims.
Note: This is the second in a two-part webinar series. A recording of the previous webinar is available now for on-demand viewing.
