DESCRIPTION: Oral Systemic Fitness (OSF) is rather like a lifestyle infused by the application and systemization of physical fitness concepts, sports, gaming, psychology, and exercise physiology to dental prevention and oral-systemic health. It's an advanced perspective on oral health, rather like Einstein's General Relativity vs Newtonian Gravitation.
Its seven main components are Education, Motivation, Supplementation, Nutrition, personal Training, eXercises, and professional Dental care -- in that order. The components help to form customizable programs (ex: strategies) and regimens (ex: tactics) to perform actions (ex: reduce inflammation) on targets (ex: gums) to achieve goals (ex: improve gums or freshen breath).
All of the above are governed by guiding principles such as: easy, simple, automatic, convenient, safe, effective, fun, formulaic, logical, cost-effective, measurable, and many more. Although the above may sound complex, it's actually formulaic and full of choices for nearly infinite personalization and ease of use.
Know the difference between oral systemic fitness and oral hygiene.
Construct your own oral systemic fitness programs and regimens.
Realize that standard home oral hygiene recommendations are nearly the minimum possible efforts you can make for your oral systemic health, and you rarely get any benefit from making minimum efforts.
Evaluate patients' home oral hygiene methods in a non-judgmental way from the perspective of a coach on the same team as the patients.
Relate patients' jobs, hobbies, skills, etc. to oral systemic health so they understand it from their perspective.
Understand how helping patients to help themselves engenders trust, which leads to more treatment acceptance, more word-of-mouth referrals, and lower advertising and marketing expenses.
Realize that along with better prevention may come lower production, but happier patients mean more referrals, which can offset lower production.
Recognize that helping patients achieve better oral and systemic health is rewarding, satisfying, reduces stress, and may even reduce potential legal problems as patients see you as more invested in their health than production.
