Is your fear of going to the dentist causing your teeth to fall out?

Attention: Assignment Editor, Books Editor, Education Editor, Health/Medical Editor, Lifestyle Editor WINDSOR/ONTARIO/MEDIA ADVISORY--(Marketwire - April 22, 2008) - When almost three out of every 10 adults over the age of 65 have no teeth and three out of four adults over the age of 35 are affected by gum disease, a major cause of tooth loss, the answer is yes. In her book, Pearls of Wisdom, Dr. Sandy Venditti says it's completely preventable and shows us how.

Dr. Venditti, oral health advocate and practicing dentist, has treated hundreds of patients afflicted with progressive disease caused by oral neglect. Troubled by this, she began asking her patients why they hadn't made the recommended bi-annual trips to the dentist, to her, an obvious health step. Her patients began to share their never-before-spoken anxieties and financial concerns - but more importantly, their obvious lack of awareness of the significant, long-term health impact of poor oral care.

"The secret to good dental health is prevention through education," says Dr. Sandy V. "There are a number of little things you can do, beyond just brushing and flossing, that can make a big difference at your next dental appointment. A well-balanced diet is important for overall health however, the order in which certain foods are eaten may also impact dental health."

In Pearls of Wisdom, Dr. Sandy V. uncovers what your dentist may not have told you because he/she thought you already knew along with other tips that will save you time and money in the dental chair. Although oral health is a serious issue, Pearls of Wisdom is written in a fun, easy-to-understand and disarming style. You'll definitely want to sink your teeth into this. /For further information: Please visit or to schedule an interview please call 519.981.1238 or email Dr. Sandy V. is available nationwide by arrangement and via telephone. / IN: EDUCATION, HEALTH, OTHER
