Position Statement on AHA Report
On April 18, 2012 the American Heart Association (AHA) presented a position paper which left the impression that treating disease in our mouth will not reduce a person's risk of heart attack, stroke, and vascular plaque buildup.
I feel their presentation of the data is confusing and offer an explanation of why the presence of certain high risk oral bacteria may be an often unrecognized contributor to vascular disease. Optimally attending to our oral health may significantly reduce the risk of events and progression of existing disease, especially in those who have other cardiovascular risk factors.
For details, see my full position statement.

Welcome to Our 3rd Era Medical Practice!
Your health is your most valuable asset. Invest in your health by joining us at Revolutionary Health Services Our mission in our Direct Primary Care/Concierge practice is to give out patients the health, time, and peace-of-mind needed to add maximal value to their family and business.
By Joining the RHS Family You Get...
A QUARTERBACK, AN ADVOCATE, A TEACHER, A FRIEND
Patients are instructed to, “take control of your health”, not because you are the best one to do so, but because you are the only one who will. We have the time and energy to truly be the quarterback of your healthcare team. We know the players, we know the opposition of the disease and the healthcare system, and we develop the strategy in times of crisis.
Whether during a crisis or for ongoing needs, you have the peace-of-mind that your team is communicating and acting on your behalf. You and your family can spend your time recovering, supporting emotional needs, or attending to workplace duties… as you should.
Navigating the broken United States “sick”care system can take an advanced degree. You will have a partner to navigate the system and fight the battles. When you or a family member faces a health crisis the last thing you want to do is spend time and emotional energy fighting the system.
You will have the time and emotional energy needed for your family and job.
Our health is our most precious asset. Medical diagnoses can be scary. The internet in the hands of an intelligent non-medical person can lead to unnecessary fear and avoidance. We have the time to explain what it happening to you, give context and perspective to minimize fear, and teach your role in health related needs.
Simple, understandable explanations significantly reduce fear in both patients and their family members. Effective teaching improves outcomes because an informed patient understands why they are being asked to take a medicine and motivates them to make difficult lifestyle changes. You worry less, are less distracted, and maximizes your performance at home and work.
We have had many patients say that this value alone is worth participating in the practice.
Our patients are our friends. A friend knows you, knows about your family, knows your fears, knows what to say and what not to say, and comforts in times of need. We often know more about you than other friends and family members do.
In medicine there are often multiple medically reasonable approaches to an individual situation. The best path to take is based on patient personality, philosophical beliefs, family situation, health status and many other variables. Only a health team that is your friend can offer the best advice.
ACCESS, CONVENIENCE, AND CARE COORDINATION
Traditional insurance only pays a physician to see you in their office. We are paid to take care of you in the best, most efficient manner that the situation and technology allows. Some people always prefer a face-to-face conversation. That will always be an option!
Imagine being able to:
We offer evening, early morning, and weekend visits. We can offer phone or Skype visits when appropriate, such as for reviewing results.
This minimizes your time away from work, family, or school.
The current healthcare system steals a doctor’s time and financially incentivizes them to refer within the system which employs them. We are able to:
Outcome- Our efforts ensure your visit is as smooth and efficient as possible. It allows the specialist the time needed to determine a solution to your concern, not spend the visit figuring out why you are there. Our efforts often reduce the number of visits you need to see them.
PROACTIVE, CUTTING EDGE, PERSONALIZED MEDICINE
Proactive approach toward more good years
Chronic diseases like cancer, dementia and cardiovascular disease don’t develop overnight. We discover the “engines” that drive these diseases, which are often asymptomatic. Examples are pre-diabetes, systemic inflammation, periodontal infection, sleep apnea, and others. They hammer on arteries, organs and your brain of their unknowing victim for years, even decades before you have any idea they exist.
Extend your “healthspan” and be one of those who has a healthy brain, is productive, traveling and active into their 80s, 90s and even 100s!
Scientifically sound but underutilized 21st technology
Our methods enable you to:
You sleep with the peace-of-mind knowing that everything is being done to maximally reduce your risk of succumbing to devastating, career altering diseases that impact the emotional and financial health of your family.
No two people are alike. Our method incorporates:
You are treated as an individual at RHS. Knowing your personal profile will help us determine whether medication is really necessary for abnormalities, and helps prioritize which of the many lifestyles are most important for you.
3rd Era Medicine
Revolutionary Health Services is a “3rd Era” of medical practice. We place the patient at the center of care. We assess your needs make recommendations, and mobilize a team specifically for you in an effort to proactively prevent disease. Traditional 2nd Era medicine places the disease at the center of care and reactively treats it. Unfortunately, when diseases like dementia, some cancers, and sudden death from a heart attack occur, there is no opportunity to treat.
Many people don't realize they are on an unfortunate path to not-so-golden years, or worse yet, a tragic event like a heart attack at a seemingly young age. We are able to identify silent problems very early while they are still treatable, and intervene in very specific ways based on your unique results.
Lengthen your Youthspan and your Healthspan
Much more important than your “lifespan” is your youthspan and your healthspan! We all know people whose golden years aren't very golden because they are continuously combating poor health.
Lifespan- How many years you live
Youthspan- How many years you continue to feel young
Healthspan- How many years you remain healthy enough to enjoy life
“Anti-aging” is a billion-dollar industry where most efforts are aimed at covering up the effects of aging through skin products, supplements, energy boosters, hormone treatments, Botox, and plastic surgery. These do nothing to improve your youthspan or healthspan!
The understanding of human genetics has made it clear that biological aging can be significantly slowed, and even reversed with the certain lifestyle changes. Yes, you can feel and look younger from the inside, out! The human body has an amazing capacity to heal itself if simply given the chance, and now we know why. This is real anti-aging!
The 3 Eras of Medicine
"On behalf of the American Academy of Periodontology (AAP) I commend Dr. Charles Whitney for his opinions expressed in the August 2012 issue of Dentistry Today..... relationship between periodontal disease and cardiovascular disease..... It is important that both the dental and medical communities heed Dr. Whitney's advice: that more emphasis, not less, should be placed on promoting periodontal health in an effort to help our patients lead truly healthy lives"
Pamela K. McClain, DDS
President, American Academy of Periodontology
