The most innocent of events can sometimes yield important thoughts and connections. During a dinner with friends, Dr. Zain had an interesting realization about how we sometimes don’t connect our oral health to our overall health.
A few days ago, my wife and I were having dinner with a family who did not know what I did for a living. As we were getting to know each other, we talked about our family pets. The wife we were dining with described taking their family pet to a veterinarian for a dental cleaning. She described how the health of the mouth influenced the body and the life of the dog would be extended with regular cleanings. But she wasn’t referring to regular cleanings, she was referring to LASER POCKET DISINFECTION. She paid $800 for the cleaning and was thrilled with her veterinarian! Really, I was just thinking to myself how we sometimes see all the signs of how oral health is affecting our body, but we resist that connection or neglect to schedule a dental treatment that is necessary to protect our overall health.
