CNBC posted a press release describing how the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists believes the dental office is a logical place to be screened for diabetes. Patients tend to visit their dentist more often than their physician so getting screened for diabetes at the dental office is innovative and convenient. The main goal is prevention. There are 29 million Americans with diabetes, of whom 8.1 million are undiagnosed. While diabetes screening in the dental office is not currently mainstream, it may soon become part of the comprehensive care provided by the inter-professional healthcare team of the 21st century.
