For more than 20 years, Dr. Chris Kammer has been at the forefront of emerging technologies and approaches in dentistry, and has become one of America’s most active advocates for the "oral systemic" approach of disease prevention. He's the founding father of the American Academy for Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH). His work with the oral systemic approach has helped many dental teams and their patients gain increased resistance to chronic disease, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, some types of cancer, and Alzheimer’s, as well as pre-term birth, and obesity.
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 clinical stage to its current widespread recognition as an important healing approach that integrates medicine and dentistry.
Dr. Kammer’s work has been presented at numerous dental conferences, conventions, and seminars, and has been published in leading dental journals. He has also 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 has also appeared widely on television and radio programs including CNN, Fox Television’s Fox and Friends, and CBS MarketWatch, The Today Show and Late Night with David Letterman and even American Idol. He was featured by Diane Sawyer on ABC World News Tonight as their Person of the Week. He is also a member of the National Dental Network’s “Who’s Who of Dentistry.”
