What a time to be a part of the dental profession! I wake up every day so thankful I chose dentistry over medicine. How many other professions have a chance to help so many with a transformation? No matter if you are directly working in the mouth, helping patients schedule for what they need, or helping offices perform their passion . . . this profession needs to gear up as leaders in medicine!
Science and the Mouth
That’s why I want to share with you this most exciting article, hot off the presses as of Jan 23rd, 2019.
“We may finally know what causes Alzheimer’s – and know how to stop it.”
Yes . . . our good old nemesis Porphyromonas Gingivalis is a causative influencer of Alzheimer’s and dementia. At my practice we have been watching this potential link for awhile and have been referring to it as Type III diabetes.
Leaders in DNA Testing
For those of you utilizing oral DNA testing, Porphyromonas Gingivalis is one of the four bad guys listed as a high-risk pathogen. Dentistry is now going to play an influential role that can help predict potential dementia and/or help delay dementia.
Once again, effective and consistent professional periodontal therapy will help keep that bacterial burden down.

I have always believed that the hygiene department is the foundation of a dental practice, and this news only supports it more.

How is that, you ask? Because when you understand that optimizing someone’s oral health helps someone’s over-all health and well-being, you have just opened back up comprehensive dentistry and strategy.
Leaders in Prevention
All procedures, products and therapies are back on the table, folks. As we speak, I am already setting the stones on how stem cells protocols will be utilized in the dental field. This is our pathway to regenerative and preventive medicine.
For several years now, we have been instrumental in helping physicians reverse cardiovascular disease and control diabetes, all by reducing inflammation and bacterial burden.
