Abstract: The relationship between periodontal disease and cardiovascular surrogate endpoints, both of which are high among the Indigenous Australia population, is established. This study seeks to explore the prevalence of cardiovascular surrogate endpoints among this population with periodontal disease, and to determine if implementation of periodontal intervention leads to improved cardiovascular risk outcomes. There may be benefit in applying this model to other areas of Indigenous health research.
