"I began my quest to understand the causes and treatment of Periodontal Disease almost 20 years ago. The importance of this mission increased as I uncovered research findings that linked this debilitating dental condition to even more serious health threats, such as heart disease."
Periodontal Disease, which is actually Periodontal Infection, can be treated. I hope that my book; The Periodontal Solution: Healthy Gums Naturally, give you the necessary knowledge to make informed decisions concerning your teeth, your gums, and ultimately your health.”
