Harvard Dental Center Begins Medical Screenings

In its continuing efforts to integrate oral health and overall health, the Harvard Dental Center—which includes the Faculty Group Practice and the Teaching Practices—has begun conducting medical screenings to help patients understand their health. At every visit, the providers will discuss the following health areas with patients, to help them become aware of potential important health issues:

• Blood pressure
• Asthma status
• Weight
• Vaccination for pneumonia
• Growth (for children)
• Vaccination for the flu
• Smoking

The Harvard Dental Center is proud to be participating in this new program to help improve patients’ health.
