One whole chapter in my documentary is devoted to oral health – The Gateway to the Body. So it’s no coincidence that I continue to do research on the criticality of oral hygiene to maintain (or improve) overall health.

Long ago, I learned that our own oral cavity has thousands of bugs. And some of these are gram-negative bastards can wreak havoc in the gums, cause cavities and create biofilms and locate anywhere in the human body…especially within blood vessels and critical areas of the heart.

In short, bad-gums = bad heart. This is what dentists were taught a century ago! Perhaps it is surprising to some, but in general, dentists aren't as biofilm-savvy as dental hygienists.

So, to help us better understand the importance of these every day health issues, see my interview with two lovely dental hygienists, Sarah and Madison:
