Wadsworth appointed at Whitney practice
Lisa Wadsworth appointment marks Dr. Charles Whitney’s latest step in bridging the oral-systemic gap between dentistry and medicine.
WASHINGTON CROSSING, Pennsylvania--Dr. Charles Whitney has named New Hope resident Lisa Wadsworth, RDH, BS, as the director of operations for his medical practice, Revolutionary Health Services.
In this role, Wadsworth will be responsible for day-to-day operations of Revolutionary Health Services, as well as patient education, employee training, professional relations among area businesses seeking employee health-care alternatives and being a liaison with allied health-care providers.
Revolutionary Health Services has the distinction of being a Direct Primary Care practice. This means that the physician has a financial relationship with the patient in return for providing that patient with more personalized, proactive, and optimal care.
Dr. Whitney is also a leading advocate of Third Era Medicine, which instead of merely treating existing disease, focuses on preventing illness by combining advanced diagnostic tests, nutrition, exercise, and collaboration with other health-care practitioners in an effort to treat the whole patient.
Dr. Whitney calls his combination of direct primary care medicine and third era medicine, “Third Era Direct™.”
According to Dr. Whitney, “I believe Lisa will prove herself to be invaluable to Revolutionary Health Services because of her proven success in employee training, patient education, and practice management. In addition, her clinical experience on the front lines of fighting periodontal disease will help me bridge the gap between oral and systemic health.”
Specifically, Dr. Whitney says Wadsworth will be instrumental in helping him educate patients about the dangers of untreated periodontal disease, particularly those he treats for cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, and other serious conditions.
“I’m very excited to assist Dr. Whitney with his plans to expand his unique Third Era Direct medical practice,” explained Wadsworth.
“To be able to apply my patient education experience regarding periodontal disease within a medical practice is an incredible pioneering opportunity. Dr. Whitney is at the forefront of dental and medical collaboration, and I’m thrilled to be a part of it.”
