Did you know that specific bacteria in the mouth can lead to negative systemic conditions such as increased risk of cardiovascular events, cancers, low term birth weight, uncontrolled diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, as well as many other conditions?
At Dresher Family Dental Care, our focus is on implementing a strong preventive program that will keep you healthy for years to come.
