for a unique Webinar Series of evening
roundtable discussions on the uses of salivary sampling for periodontal pathogens and interleukin polymorphisms. We plan to share cases, how patients were treated, results of therapy, and discuss how to test results facilitate communication with referring GPs in the co-management of patients.
I, Dr. Bader, will lead off the webinar series with a discussion of a case in which PCR pathogen testing played a key role in the diagnosis, as well as how it helped determine the method of treatment and re-testing necessary to monitor the patient’s progress.
I look forward to your participation, and encourage you to enter into the discussion with questions and comments, and to share your own experiences, so that we may all gain further insight regarding the practical implementation of salivary testing.
