About one-third of American adults have high blood pressure. Many patients see a dentist more frequently than a physician, providing the dental team an opportunity to educate their patients about blood pressure readings and how it affects their overall health. The information in this course teaches the dental professional to be aware of the causes and how to determine and assess identifiable causes of hypertension as well as providing the appropriate method of taking a blood pressure and how to determine the recommendations for follow-up and lifestyle modifications for patient treatment.
