    Our understanding of the link between oral and systemic health has increased rapidly in recent years. However, physicians and dentists are rarely provided with an opportunity to discuss the oral-systemic link. The goal of this symposium is to discuss prospective research linking oral health with systemic health, using formal presentations, audience participation and panel discussions.
