DNA Smile is a genetic test designed to give insights into the state of your oral health and your predisposition for developing periodontal disease, tooth caries and other systemic diseases. DNA Smile reports on gene variations involved in the key biological areas including Innate immunity, Inflammation and acquired immunity, and Sweet-tooth predisposition – all of which are central in the management of periodontal and systemic health. The DNA Smile add-on for mercury exposure will also report on the areas of Detoxification and Lipid metabolism. The report offers targeted, personalised diet, nutraceutical, lifestyle, and oral health recommendations to offset possible genetic weaknesses and optimise oral and systemic health outcomes.
Sign up for the DNA Smile Online Certification Course, and become a certified DNA Smile practitioner, joining our global network of preferred providers for this valuable genetic test. Become a part of the DNA Smile community where you will be able to connect with like-minded practitioners, the course educators and experts in the field of biological dentistry.
This comprehensive online course is presented completely online in a user-friendly educational platform designed to make learning easy.
The course is divided into 6 comprehensive modules covering the following:
- A brief overview of lifestyle genomics and the science, and why the test was developed
- Relevant DNA Smile biological areas
- The relation of the biological area to oral health
- Evidence on the genes and SNPs associated with periodontal and general oral health outcomes
- Intervention guidelines related to the biological area with regards to diet, nutraceutical, lifestyle, and dental support
- Overview of the DNA Smile report
- DNA Smile case studies: real-world examples
- DNA Smile certification assignment
You will also gain access to supporting scientific literature that is provided as recommended reading per module, and downloadable slides in PDF format.
Please note that there is a quiz to complete after each module, which you will need to complete within 3 months of commencing the course. The course content will be accessible for 1 year. The total time to get through the prerequisite sections of the course is just over 4.5 hours.
