For so long we have come to the belief that dentists are the ‘brushing and flossing police.’
It’s time to eliminate that belief.
It’s not enough to just say “you are not brushing and flossing well enough.”
It’s time to change the MINDSET.
It’s time to embrace the fact that there are other things happening that lead to your bleeding gums.
It’s time to embrace the reality that gum disease is a manifestation of chronic inflammation
- that contributes to systemic inflammation
- that drives the progress of chronic inflammatory disease, such as heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, and obesity. Know this: these diseases rob you of quality of life.
It’s time to embrace the importance of how we as your dentists can help you achieve oral AND overall health.
We as your dental providers have an opportunity, …no a RESPONSIBILITY, to play a major role to manage your overall health.
I invite you for dialogue, conversation, and participation as we move forward together in this wild and precious life.
To your health,
