COVID-19 has us all focused on being the healthiest we can. Patients are going to be open to listening to dental teams for advice on both oral and systemic health support. Dental teams have the opportunity to educate on Oral-Systemic impacts on health and to support patients toward healthy habits.

Now is the time to share your knowledge and save lives. Patients are going to need your guidance on products and healthy habits. Learn how to talk about health issues and how to confidently recommend products and services to support patient care goals.

Guest speaker: 
Dr. Suzanne Saidi-Phillips

Suzanne is a wife and mother to three amazing daughters ages 24, 20 and 18. After finishing a Bachelor's degree in Biochemistry and a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) from the University of the Pacific in San Francisco, Suzanne spent time in Finland researching migration patterns of oral cancer cells.


Back in the United States, Suzanne continues to practice dentistry after 30 years in the profession. She is excited to use this lifetime of health education and experience as inspiration for her passion – a business encouraging holistic , comprehensive and oral systemic health and wellness. Her business will additionally allow Suzanne to spend more time with her family and reduce her reliance on practicing dentistry every day out of financial necessity.


Instead she is working towards becoming free to choose dentistry a couple days a week because she genuinely loves the work she does. The power of choice has empowered her to offer the same opportunity to others and be a role model for her daughters at home.
