BATTLE CREEK, Michigan – We are encouraged by the interest and support of so many individuals and organizations in the evaluation released this week of Alaska's dental therapist program. The evaluation conducted by RTI International assessed the work of the first cohort of dental therapists practicing in the U.S., the experiences of more than 400 patients and the performance of dental therapists on hundreds of procedures. Using criteria derived from examination standards for assessing U.S. dental school graduates, the evaluation clearly demonstrates the safety, competence and appropriateness of care provided by dental therapists practicing in Alaska. It is but the latest link in a long chain of evidence-based research and experience from more than 50 other countries supporting the dental therapist model as a way to provide necessary oral health care services in underserved communities.

For thousands of Southern Californians who suffer from periodontal disease and tooth decay, Dr. Mahnaz Rashti is the premier care provider in Los AngelesLOS ANGELES, Calfornia – Gum disease is one of the most prevalent health conditions in the US, posing serious risks, such as loss of teeth, for the millions who suffer from it. People from all types of socio-economic backgrounds fall victim to periodontal disease, and studies have shown a strong correlation between periodontal (gum) health and overall physiological health, with regards to the heart, cholesterol levels, and brain function. Often, people who seek treatment for the symptoms they're experiencing do so when it's too late, and require the care of a periodontist, a dentist specializing in the structure of the gums and teeth. Periodontitis is often regarded as the "silent killer" because, most of the time, there is no pain or discomfort until irreversible damage to the gums has been done. Individuals who have family members who have lost teeth or developed gum disease are significantly more disposed to develop it themselves, which is why undergoing routine checkups with a periodontist is a valuable preventative measure. Recent attention has been drawn towards Dr. Mahnaz Rashti, a Los Angeles periodontist whose extensive knowledge and adeptness in the field of periodontology has allowed her to consistently provide life-changing results for her patients, many of whom exhibit severe and significant progression of gum disease.
