For more than 20 years, Dr. Chris Kammer has been at the forefront of emerging technologies and ideas in dentistry, and has become one of America’s most vocal advocates for the "oral systemic" approach for disease prevention. He's the founding father, first president, and 6 year board member of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), an organization that has partnered with the world class medical experts from the Cleveland Clinic to educate physicians and dental teams on the critical significance of how the health of the mouth impacts the health of the body.
Check out the AAOSH podcast with Dr. Chris Kammer and Machell Hudson, RDH!
Dr. Kammer has been a chief dental consultant for Reader’s Digest, and has been quoted in many publications including USA Today, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, Redbook, and Woman’s Day. He was featured on ABC World News Tonight with Diane Sawyer as their Person of the Week. He has also appeared widely on national television and radio programs including The Today show, Fox and Friends, CBS MarketWatch, CNN, NPR, Montel Williams, Late Night with David Letterman and even American Idol where his original song “Get Out the Brush” reached a viewing audience of 25 million people.
Dr. Kammer was one of the first clinicians in America to develop a protocol for disease prevention with the oral systemic approach, using his comprehensive “Gums of Steel” program. He has helped bring the practice of oral systemics from its early philosophical stage to its current widespread recognition as an important whole body healing approach that integrates medicine and dentistry and he has the studies and results to back it up.
