Oral Health and Medicine: Separate Not Equal

By Naomi Fukuda

Naomi Fukuda

Naomi Fukuda is a pre-dental student at Haverford College. Naomi’s vlog series, “Oral Health and Medicine: Separate Not Equal,” will center around the dentistry-medicine divide and why we have chosen to treat the mouth separately from the rest of the body. There are many policies in medicine that do not apply to dentistry. She plans to address this issue and the importance of recognizing oral health and general health as intertwined and inseparable.
