Welcome to Ask the Dentist

Welcome to Ask the Dentist! 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 oral-body connection. We now know one’s oral health is intimately connected to the health of the rest of the body.

The environment inside the mouth is connected to the rest of your body so intimately that the state of your oral health can predict whether you’ll have heart disease, dementia, and diabetes.

It is this foundational concept that inspired me to write this dental blog for you and your loved ones.
