Stress Health & Wellness -
a unique oral health perspective
Presented by Dr Ron Ehrlich, BDS (Syd. Uni.), FACNEM (Dent)
A day that will make a difference.
The workshops are designed for health practitioners seeking a greater understanding of how oral health impacts on general health & wellness.
The one day workshop will cover the five modules below. There are currently two dates for the workshop in 2012.
Module 1 - Wellness & Stress
Stress is central to all disease. How do we define stress? How does it affect us and what can we do about it? Dr Ron will review a model of health and wellness, looking at stress from a unique oral health perspective
Module 2 - Impacts of Oral Cavity Health
Imbalances in body chemistry are the precursors to disease and are directly affected by how we breathe and what we eat. As the gateway to the respiratory system and digestive tract the shape and health of the oral cavity impacts on our ability to achieve good health.
Module 3 - Chronic Inflammation
Chronic inflammation predisposes to chronic degenerative diseases. As the site of the body's two most common infections and inflammations, gum disease and tooth decay we will review what the problem is, how to detect it and what we can do about it. The absence of pain does not indicate health.

Module 4 - Toxicity – An Environmental & Health Issue
Dental materials have the potential to be toxic. What are the issue’s surrounding a dentist’s choice, how does it affect the body and what can we do to make the best decisions for our health.
Module 5 - Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain
Chronic musculoskeletal pain affects 30-50% of the population, yet the jaw is often overlooked as a contributory factor. With 40% of the body’s neurology in the orofacial region, imbalances in the muscles of the head, neck and jaw can affect muscles and nerves throughout the body.
