America’s Sweet Tooth Obsession


Happy Spring! It’s finally reached us here in NC, and I hope that if you’re still in the cold that you’re at least seeing some small signs that warmer weather is on its way!

Last week, I snuck away with the family for a couple days of Spring Break in the Blue Ridge Mountains. We love this area for helping us unwind from ‘city’ life and spend some time together in the country.

Spring Break in the Blue Ridge Mountains

On the heels of Valentine’s Day and Easter, it’s appropriate that we feature our upcoming Hygiene Profits Mastermind called ‘America’s Sweet Tooth Obsession and Its Impact on Oral & Systemic Health’.

When my daughter came home from her kindergarten Valentine’s Day party I have to tell you that I was appalled at the amount of candy that came home with her. I love an occasional chocolate and I’m sure I eat a lot more hidden sugar than I know, but this was ridiculous. She ate a piece or two and the rest quietly disappeared…

I’m so curious to hear Karen share not only how sugar effects our oral health but also our systemic health. There are some sources that claim sugar is a big player in INFLAMMATION. And if you listened to our February call about inflammation and heart disease, you won’t want to miss this one.

“America’s Sweet Tooth Obsession and It’s Impact on Oral & Systemic Health”
with special guest Karen Davis, RDH, BSDH

As dental professionals we realize the importance of diet and nutrition related to our patients’ dental health. Getting comfortable with this subject and working it into our patient education however can be a real challenge. This month I’ll interview Karen Davis, RDH, national speaker and columnist as she helps us realize the true impact sugar is having on our health and the health of our patients. During the call Karen will share:

  • The truth about “added sugars” in foods and drinks
  • What the literature says about the consumption of sugar-sweetened drinks and the deleterious impact it has on systemic health
  • Tips to motivate patients to reclaim their health!
