Chief Science Officer, Dr. Jeb Jacobson is passionate about convincing Americans that maintaining good oral hygiene and getting routine dental exams is critical to more than preserving a great smile. He says, “Oral health issues impact our overall health.” He believes that, “dentists are in a unique position to see clues in and around the mouth that may indicate a serious health problems.”  Together, with Health and Wellness Correspondent, Michelle Strange, they offer insights and provide compelling evidence that can help prevent disease and encourage early diagnosis of serious health issues.  With so many connection between oral health and overall wellness, Dr. Jacobson is concerned for people who fail to get their routine dental checkups, “But, without dental insurance, dental care can be expensive, and that’s usually means less frequent visits to the dentist.”
