On today’s show Dr Fitness and the Fat Guy opened the show with Dr Sandy Venditti, Canada’s favorite dentist. Dr Venditti explained the importance of good dental hygiene and shared some great health tips from her new book Pearls of Wisdom.
Dr. Venditti has been a practicing dentist for over 14 years and really looked beyond the gums and teeth of her patients. She witnessed the pain – the fear and confusion – behind their eyes.
She knew many of her patients didn’t need to be in her chair – that what she was treating was easily preventable. As a traveling dentist, Dr. Sandy has treated patients of all ages and nationalities, and found the same problems, the same fears. Dr. Sandy is committed to educating her patients about gingivitis prevention. She says that a healthy body begins with a healthy mouth.
She believes that there is no good reason why three out of four adults over the age of 35 have gum disease and tooth decay remains the most common chronic condition among North American children. She believes it is through education and counseling that we can begin to reverse these current statistics.
