AAOSH has been saving lives since 2010! Who is AAOSH?


The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) began in 2010 with the primary goal of uniting dentistry and medicine in treating the body as a whole. Fast forward 10 years later, we are still focused on that original target and the paths have wonderfully broadened to not just dentistry, but all allied health fields – chiropractic, integrated medicine, naturopathic medicine, functional medicine, osteopathic medicine, advanced practice nursing, life science coaching, and so many more!

The idea of the mouth connecting to all things systemically in the body is being read about and listened to daily – it is even being shown on mainstream news outlets! It is exciting to see this change of focus and people starting to take more responsibility for their own health outside of traditional medicine and dentistry practices. Dentists have begun taking on the mindset of “dental physicians” in diagnosis and treatments, and hygienists are becoming more specialized preventive treatment providers, arming patients with valuable information on advanced oral care including nutrition, supplements, oral testing, botanicals, Myofunctional therapy (OMT) and now even viruses. Diagnostics testing, such as the test menu OralDNA® Labs provides, is an integral player to this complete health approach.

In recent years, the AAOSH annual sessions have begun to attract students and faculty from medical, dental, and dental hygiene schools – which is no less than amazing! The dream of changing curriculums and mindsets was daunting at the onset, but now we can clearly begin to see the swing headed in that direction.

No longer is treating disease the foremost focus, it is preventing disease in the first place. We can assist patients to achieve healthier lives. We hope you will become part of the new “attitude” and join us in spreading the word about oral-systemic health at the AAOSH 2020 virtual annual session, August 28-29, 2020. We have an incredible lineup of speakers who will be unveiling some of the latest in research and cures, sponsor booths, chatrooms, breakouts, and panels with live Q&A. Register now and learn more at AAOSH.org, to begin, or continue, your journey to health!

American Academy of Oral Systemic Health

The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) is an organization of healthcare leaders and health professionals dedicated to expanding awareness of the relationship between oral health and whole-body health. AAOSH promotes medical and dental partnerships, building closer ties between allied health professionals and improving interdisciplinary communication and professional referral relationships. Emerging science confirms that chronic low-grade infections in the mouth elevates systemic inflammation and has an impact on all body systems. The significance of the numerous mouth-body and oral-systemic connections highlight the importance of preventing and treating oral disease which has mounting and profound medical impacts on “whole body” health. AAOSH invites all health professionals and members of the healthcare community at large to increase their understanding of the many relationships between the mouth and the body, and to become actively involved with us in changing the public and professional attitudes and awareness related to the many oral-systemic connections.
