Want to look at healthcare in 10 years? May be even 5?
Have a read of this case study on shifting the focus of healthcare from sickness to …well, health. Its called the Blue Zone Project and its about getting folks to change their behavior and lifestyle before the wave of chronic disease starts.
Now think of the most common chronic disease — poor oral health. Can or should dental care join the Blue Zone Project?
It would seem that dentistry has little choice but to be a member of the Blue Zone. Getting to better oral health means protecting overall health. And better overall health can mean reversing poor overall health.
So healthcare in 10 years will be about containing costs by avoiding illness. Blue Zone Dentistry will be much different than today.
