The New Frontier of Oral Disease Prevention
EVENING COURSE - FEBRUARY 11, 2021
Instructor: Alireza Panahpour, DDS
Epigenetics is the study of changes in gene function that are mitotically and/or meiotically heritable and that do not entail a change in DNA sequence. Our epigenetic code determines when and where genes in the genetic code are expressed. Epigenetic change is a regular and natural occurrence but can also be influenced by several factors including age, environment and disease state.
If every single cause and effect of the different combinations of genes could be mapped, and if the gene's state could be reversed to keep the good while eliminating the bad, then epigenetics could cure cancer, slow aging, stop obesity; prevent and treat dental problems.
This course will:
review the literature current on epigenetics research in dentistry and provide clinical application to support your patients care.
discuss implications of epigenetics for the future of clinical dental practice including a 'personalized medicine' approach to the management of common oral diseases.
