TEST & TREATMENT PROGRAM

STEP 1 - FINGER STICK TEST
The simple finger-stick blood test has proven to be fast, easy and well tolerated with comprehensive results in just 4-5 business days using only 5 drops of blood.  This utilizes a unique next-generation molecular proteomic test that detects up to 180 airborne, environmental and food allergies, compared to average 40-50 from standard scratch testing.  The global panel combines a 67 non-inhalant food panel, a 9 non-inhalant environmental panel with a 104 environmental inhalant panel, including insects, latex, penicillin, animals, fungi, grass, molds, trees, weeds and more.  After the review of your medical history and clinical examination, your healthcare provider will determine if it is appropriate for confirmatory testing to determine if you have allergies.  Your healthcare provider may also use confirmatory testing, after careful clinical review, to evaluate for asthma due to allergies also known as secondary asthma.
STEP 2 - PRESCRIBE
With the results of the finger stick blood test, the physician writes an 90-day prescription for Allerdent​​​® with 3 refills that is then sent to a Compound Pharmacy.  The unique allergen serum to non-food based allergies is mixed into Allerdent's OMIT Base to create the toothpaste for the patient to pick up at their doctor's practice, or sent to the patient's home. 
STEP 3 - BRUSH TEETH
Once the toothpaste is dispensed to the patient, patients can immediately begin ​​​​brushing away their allergies in 2 minutes every day.  Patients feel better faster because treatment begins at the maintenance level vs. titrating up for 6-9 months as with injections. Many patients start feeling better within 2 months. The patient only has to return to the practice yearly to repeat fingerstick testing to determine response to therapy vs. receiving a weekly injection. The most clinically effective result is typically achieved within a 3-5 year regimen
BENEFITS
BENEFITS TO PATIENT
This treatment plan is the ultimate time and money saver.  Other treatment plans, such as weekly injection shots (SCIT) or sublingual drops (SLIT) are both costly and time consuming. However, with the prescription Allerdent® toothpaste, you can ​​now ​​​brush away your allergies by doing something you would have done, anyway - while saving time and money. 
BENEFITS TO PRACTICE
Optimum Allergy Solutions has created a solution to the national allergy concern.  A practice can now monitor the patient measured results through annual finger stick retesting with optional quarterly office visits and physician prescribed Allerdent® toothpaste that is specifically designed to decrease non-food allergies.  With a lower overall treatment expense for patients, the practice is able to retain and continue care for their patients with allergies and secondary asthma.
