"Riding the Silver Tsunami: A Guide to Creating an Oral-Systemic Practice" With Patti DiGangi

Riding the Silver Tsunami: A Guide to Creating an Oral-Systemic Practice

With Patti DiGangi, RDH, BS

7.5 Category 1 Continuing Education Credits

Meet Patti DiGangi

Patti believes dentistry is no longer just about fixing teeth; dentistry is oral medicine. Her work helps dental professionals embrace the
opportunities and understand the metrics that accurate insurance coding provides. This increases practice profitability while improving the oralsystemic health of the patients we serve.

Her efforts have assisted thousands of professionals to code more
accurately and efficiently. In fact, the American Dental Association
recognized her expertise by inviting her to write a chapter in its CDT
2017 Companion book and again for CDT 2018 Companion. Patti holds publishing and speaking licenses with ADA for Current Dental Terminology ©2017 and a license for SNODENT©2017 diagnostic coding.

She demystifies coding with workshops and little books of easily digestible stories about
patients like we see every day. ROMA Manual on Dentistry A Lighthearted yet Deadly Serious Look at our Profession is the 7th book in her DentalCodeology series is of easy-to-read bitesize books. Patti can be reached at Patti@DentalCodeology.com.

Course Description:

Every day starting in 2011, ten-thousand (10,000) people turn age 65 daily and will continue for many more years! This unprecedented phenomenon is termed The Silver Tsunami. Medical advances have enabled people to live longer and healthier lives, dental advances have resulted in the preservation of healthy dentition in these later years. You already know that many oral symptoms can be a key indicator of a more serious health condition. This fact has particularly serious implications for Baby Boomers, many of whom cease their routine oral care visits with retirement. Reasons include a loss of dental benefits at retirement and a failure to recognize the value that maintaining oral health has for one's overall health, well-being, and longevity. Dental professionals can prepare themselves to meet these demands with a thorough knowledge of the needs and treatments specific to this demographic.

Learning Objectives:

Upon completion of this course, the participant should be able to:

• Describe lifespan vs. health-span
• Merge the latest oral-systemic information into treatment decisions
• Manage age-related disorders and physiological changes associated with periodontal
disease, caries and oral cancer
• Know how to correctly and satisfactorily answer the question "Will Medicare cover it?“
• 5 Simple Action Steps to make it work

"TBD" with Dr. Michele Shems

Information coming soon!



After being inspired by her own orthodontist as an adolescent, Dr. Michele Shems decided to make specializing in orthodontia her career goal. She first earned a Bachelor of Arts in history while meeting the pre-med criteria at University of Vermont. Then Dr. Shems enrolled in Tufts University School of Dental Medicine. She not only completed her graduate degree in dental medicine, but took it a step further, to complete another two years of training specifically tailored for a career as a specialist in orthodontics.

After successfully completing major exams and preparing cases over the course of a required ten years, Dr. Shems became a Diplomat of the American Board of Orthodontics.

Today, as a proud member of the community, a mother of three, wife, and orthodontist, Dr. Shems approaches each case with careful evaluation. She stays abreast with up-and-coming research, treatment recommendations, and modalities, with a tendency to be much more conservative than most. Dr. Shems takes great pride in providing excellent care to each patient, while making sure they enjoy their time in our office.
