Learning module: The microbiome in health and disease

It is more important than ever that clinicians have a good understanding of the microbiome due to its intrinsic relationship with patients’ health. To meet this need, Zendium has condensed the latest thinking into a professional learning module that includes an overview of our understanding of the microbiome and implications for oral care.

The module covers:

  • Evolution of the human microbiome and how it has changed through time
  • The importance of the microbiome in human health
  • Role of saliva in maintaining a balanced oral microbiome
  • Consequences of dysbiosis
