“Information is liberating.”

So said Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, and Nobel Peace Prize recipient. I agree, and want to emphasize to all my patients how important it is to be informed and educated about your dental health.

The decisions about your dental health care and any treatments that might be necessary are always yours. I will recommend options to you, and which one I think are best, but you are in control of your care at all times. The more you know, the better you’ll be able to make decisions that will be the best choices for you.

Here are some useful web sites that highlight important dental health topics. I encourage you to browse through them, and learn how important dental health is to your overall health.
