Systemic Diseases and Oral Health

Dr. Elisa Chavez

My work contributes to current research linking systemic and oral health and investigating the role health status may play in reporting and receiving dental services. I also am active in developing, evaluating and reporting on models intended to train providers in the dental care of frail and medically compromised individuals. The goal is to ensure that the oral health needs of these individuals are addressed.
