Periodontal disease and pregancy risks
TeethRemoval.com
An often disagreed point in the literature is whether or not periodontal disease is associated with adverse pregnancy outcomes such as preterm births and low birth weight. In an older article, I discussed how in a meta-analysis of 10 randomized trials in January 2011 found no evidence in favor of periodontal disease being associated with preterm births and low birth weight.

Dentistry IQ

So, how can you convert a patient from "Let me think about it" to "Let's get started?" The first paramount step in helping patients say "yes" is to actively listen to them. This means making connections with them on their first phone call and their first visit in your office. One simple way to remember to make three connections with new patients is to use the acronym CAT- career, activities (hobbies), and their family.
