Welcome to Ask the Dentist!
This blog is about teeth, but it’s much more than that. The health of the mouth affects everywhere else in the body. Did you know that the state of your oral health can predict whether you’ll have heart disease, dementia, diabetes, and even sleep apnea?
My name is Dr. Mark Burhenne (Dr. B for short). In my 30 years of practice as a dentist, I’ve seen many people who have fallen through the cracks due to our healthcare system’s failure to understand the mouth-body connection.
As a dentist, I’ve learned that to help my patients get healthy, we can’t look at just the mouth in isolation—we have to see the whole picture.
