Diabetes Mellitus and oral health an interprofessional approach PDF
Diabetes Mellitus and oral health an interprofessional approach PDF is the culmination of more than 20 years of work at the intersection of diabetes mellitus and oral health. There were many collaborators during that time, but Evanthia Lalla and Ann Marie Schmidt have been there throughout. Their insight and efforts were invaluable, and we continue to work together, as both are authors of chapters in this book. My research focusing on the relationship of diabetes and oral disease has received generous funding from a number of sources.
Thanks are due to Colgate Palmolive, Johnson & Johnson, as well as the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, the New York State Health Foundation, and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and Enhanced Education.
Shelby Allen and Nancy Turner at Wiley Blackwell were very helpful and supportive during the preparation of this book, and early in the process they saw the importance of this project. My assistant Cynthia Rubiera helped make the task of translating thoughts to printed word far easier than it might have been.
The Columbia University College of Dental
Medicine (CDM) provided an environment that fostered interprofessional education and practice. The CDM culture emphasizes collaboration and a place for dental medicine in the larger health care environment. The faculty and students at CDM have always been a source of inspiration as we seek to define the future of the dental profession.
