Reader’s Digest Dental Story

December 2005’s Reader’s Digest  featured, “The Checkup That Can Save Your Life,” which delves into the relationship between oral and systemic health through case reports and research results. The subhead, “The dentist may be the most important doctor you see this year” ... And the article concludes “ … as medical science reaffirms that head and body are indeed connected, there’s more reason than ever to brush twice a day, floss daily, and get dental checkups every six months or see a dentist promptly if you have a problem.”

    There is an interaction, interconnectedness and inseparable relationship between
 oral and general health.*

Comprehensive exam allows us to keep your mouth in good health and watch for developments that may point to problems elsewhere in you body, picks up on poor nutrition and hygiene, growth and development problems and improper jaw alignment.
