Pacific Dental Services, American Diabetes Association partner on oral healthcare initiative

Irvine, Calif.-based Pacific Dental Services and the American Diabetes Association are partnering on an awareness campaign to educate people on the link between periodontal disease and diabetes. 

In addition to educating people on the link between the two health conditions, the organizations will also spread awareness on how oral health providers can help patients prevent and manage diabetes, according to an Oct. 3 news release.

The two organizations partnered in November 2021 in recognition of American Diabetes Month. Pacific Dental Services also partnered with Commonwealth Primary Care ACO in January to provide care in collaboration with the ACO's physicians to Medicare Advantage patients diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes.
