Self-Care For Your Smile – And A Healthier You

February 5, 2020 @ 11:30 am - 12:00 pm

It’s remarkable that the interactions between oral health and systemic conditions are well-documented but less known by the public than they should be. Continuing an effort to correct this, Matthew Messina DDS leads a spirited discussion of steps we can take to achieve brighter smiles and better overall health.  The relationships between common dental problems and systemic conditions, including diabetes, stroke, cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and Alzheimer’s disease will be explored.  Join us as we have some fun and develop skills to smile all the way to a healthier you.

Matthew J Messina DDS is an Assistant Professor – Clinical in the Division of Restorative and Prosthetic Dentistry at The Ohio State University College of Dentistry.  He is the Clinic Director of Upper Arlington Dentistry at the Wexner Medical Center Outpatient Care Upper Arlington facility.  He is also the Interim Director of Dental Oncology for Ohio State.  Dr. Messina advocates a team-based approach to overall health, where dentistry plays an integral role in comprehensive care and wellness.  Over his 30 year career in dentistry, he has appeared on ABC’s Good Morning America program and has been interviewed on CNN and NPR.  He has provided comments on dental health for USA TODAY, the New York Times, Washington Post, Cosmopolitan, Men’s Health, WebMD, and Prevention magazine.
