Dr. Michael Roizen of the Cleveland Clinic Tells Dentists to Pioneer the Healthcare Wellness Movement

Dr. Michael Roizen, Chair of the Wellness Institute and Chief Wellness Officer at the Cleveland Clinic, ranked by U.S. News and World Report in the top 4 hospitals in the world for the last 18 years and the number 1 cardiac care hospital in the world for the last 18 years. They discuss the purpose of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, why “wellness and prevention of disease” is so important today rather than the “treat after you get sick” model, the need to minimize systemic inflammation through good oral health, and the most effective simple things you can do to become healthier. Dr. Roizen sees the dental profession as a highly credible army of healthcare providers that can take the wellness message to the entire country and to the world – the physicians and dentists need to work together for the overall health of the patient.
