Did you know that Dr. Steve Acker is an AAOSH Health Professional?

Understanding Oral Systemic Health

The American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH) classifies “oral systemic health” as the connection between oral health and overall health. Studies have clarified that there is a link between a person’s oral health and the occurrence of systemic diseases such as:

  • rheumatoid arthritis
  • heart disease
  • dementia
  • diabetes
  • stroke

By focusing of providing patients with a holistic approach to their oral health and general health, Dr. Acker aims to reduce the different factors that put your heath at risk.

The AAOSH perspective

As a member of the AAOSH, Dr. Acker prides himself in keeping up to date with the latest dental technologies and emerging techniques. The academy brings together sciences and professionals to ensure their representatives have access to educational opportunities that encourage quality clinical diagnosis, skills and patient education.

Through the promotion of excellent care and encouragement, we hope to provide a positive environment for our patients.
