A health care provider’s job involves determining the health risks associated with certain oral health care interventions, and deciding what treatment or therapies to provide for those risks.
Oral health is an emerging field in medicine and health care that focuses on improving oral health by making sure oral health is a part of the health care system.
The most well-known oral health intervention, oral contraception, has been around for more than a century.
It’s a pill that can prevent pregnancy.
But, like many medications, the pill can also lead to an increase in the risk of oral cancer, diabetes, high blood pressure and other health conditions.
The oral health industry has become a $1.7 trillion industry in the United States, according to the American Institute of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons, a trade group that represents oral health professionals.
