National survey reveals baby boomers miss links between oral and overall health

Baby boomers looking for the warning signs of adult-onset diseases may be overlooking key symptoms in their mouth that should signal alarms about their overall health. According to a survey commissioned by the Academy of General Dentistry, 63 percent of baby boomers (ages 45-64) with an oral symptom considered to be a key indicator of a more serious health condition, were unaware of the symptom’s link to the condition. Boomers’ failure to recognize that oral health holds valuable clues could negatively impact their overall health.

I LOVE THIS STAFF!

I love all of the office staff! From the sweet ladies at the front desk to my wonderful and personable hygienist as well as dr Kim. From start to finish it is a great experience, considering it is the dentist 😉 I love the feel of the office, the colors, furniture and overall cleanliness, I feel relaxed and comfortable. Thank you for making my dental experience exceptional!
