“You can be sick with a healthy mouth but you cannot be healthy with a sick mouth!” Dr. Doug Thompson DDS, Founder of Wellness Dentistry Network

Did you know that scientific research continues to strengthen the connection between the mouth and the body?

Under the direction of Dr. Thomas Frank and as part of a thorough oral health evaluation, Dentistry for Total Body Wellness routinely checks for the only two diseases of the mouth that are caused by bacteria. These are gum disease and cavities.

Both tooth decay and gum disease, if left untreated, increase the risk of developing serious health issues such as cardiac problems, stroke, and high blood pressure. Since more than 75% of Americans have some form of gum disease, our first priority will be to develop a plan to cure and stabilize it.
