CardioDontics.... The begining

There have been hundreds of articles in the medical literature that show that periodontal disease is a risk factor for heart attacks, low birth weight infants, and diabetes. They talk about this connection on "The View" and Oprah Winfrey. I wrote a book about it.

Why don't more people know about this connection? More importantly, why don't more dentists? Finally, why doesn't the dental society do something about this?

  1. Dr. Nehmet Oz (an MD) has been saying this on the Oprah show for a long time.
    But you are right. The dental community has not been vocal enough.
