Overview 

The value of a healthy lifestyle is gaining interest in society, however, there’s great inequality in health among different countries and different groups of people. How can we, as dental professionals, help increase the knowledge and awareness of how daily habits impact health? We’ll discuss how diet and physical activity are connected to oral health. We’ll also provide some tips on how you can improve holistic caretaking by focusing on getting a broader picture of your patients.
