I ran across this video the other day and I found it fascinating. For over 30 years we have been inundated with the theory that a high fat diet is the root of obesity and poor cardiovascular health. As it turns out, we have not been told the truth. While it is true that a high fat diet is bad, sugar is the real culprit. We have know for ages that sugar is the fuel for tooth decay but there are so many other reasons to stay away from sugar.
This video is long and does have some basic biochemistry, which can be glazed over, but is well worth a watch.

I’d like to welcome everyone to our new website. This site has been in the works a long time (too long some may say) and there are some exciting new features that I’d like you to check out.
On our gallery page we will have photos and case presentations that showcase the type of work that we do. The page will always be a work in progress so make sure to stop by from time to time to check it out
The biggest new feature is this blog itself. Dr. McLaughlin and I both want to have a way to keep in contact with the public and let them know the new and exciting things we are working on. Here you will find general office news, case presentations, and out thoughts on overall dental health.
Please subscribe to our RSS feed to keep up to date.
We are still working on way to implement these tools to our office be we are excited about what the future holds. Lets say we have a last minute cancellation for a cleaning, we could send out a tweet about what time we have open. There is a chance that someone following us wants to get in for a cleaning and the time may for work their schedule, a possible win-win.
There are several new features that we are still working on, including the ability for patients to login and view their treatment plans and balances, and we will post those here when they are ready. Thank you so much for taking time to check out our new site and please feel free to provide any feedback to our site administrator.
