Help us change the paradigm of healthcare delivery to integrated root cause medicine.

Become a dental professional certified to participate with medical professionals and health coaches in Dr. Bredesen’s dementia prevention and reversal through ReCODE and PreCODE:

  • We guide you through implementing oral health elements of ReCODE into your practice.
  • We directly connect you to certified medical professionals in your region and facilitate collaboration, referral forms, and tools.
  • Physicians will seek collaboration with you.
  • Patients will be searching for your expertise.
  • Re-care will flourish.
  • Patients will willingly accept case recommendations.

Follow the Roadmap

Step One

Become an authority in dementia care

  • Receive the full certification course for a dentist and two team members.
  • You will have full access to ReCODE provider updates and town hall meetings with Dr. Bredesen.
  • You will have access to the full patient education platform to deepen your learning.
  • To learn more about the course curriculum CLICK HERE.

Step Two

Implement the plan

  • We will guide you with the implementation of Clinical and Marketing Tools to deliver stand out messaging so that your patients will know that you are the trusted Alzheimer’s Expert in their community.
  • We will ensure optimal implementation of the ReCODE method into your dental practice and ongoing support of team members certified in dementia care.

Step Three

Partner with medical practices

  • We will introduce you to at least one certified ReCODE medical provider.
  • Others may search for you so they may qualify for recognition as a Bredesen Certified Center of Excellence.
  • You will be invited to join the Apollo Health network of ReCODE 2.0 Certified Practitioners and Health Coaches.

Course Curriculum

Below is the content of the Dental ReCODE 2.0 Certification curriculum. Note that you will have access to all 36 hours of curriculum that the physician receives, however only 18 hours are required for Dental Professional Certification.

We STRONGLY encourage dental participants to view all required course curriculum first and then after certification,  if interested, view the modules listed as optional. Of particular interest to dental teams will be Module 5- Practicing ReCODE (Oral health/ Alzheimer connection) and Module 6- The B7, which is dedicated to the lifestyle coaching component of the Bredesen ReCODE protocol. You will find this module to be extremely valuable on your own quest to prevent cognitive decline.
