On this podcast episode, I talk with Christin Lincoln, RDH about the different types of hygienists you may find in every day offices, and things you can use to tell if a dental office is one that you want to invest in.  We piggy back on last week’s episode where Cindy Johnson and I talk about interviewing a health care provider to determine if they are the right fit for you and your values as a patient or employee.

We explore why oral health matters and how hygienists and oral health coaches help guide you to better overall health…not just oral health.

Christine talks about her website that is also designed for the consumer population and bacteria that triggers disease in the body, and the podcast she cohosts with a friend and fellow “momgienist”.

We discuss how someone’s bite can lead to gum disease (periodontal disease) and why it’s important to look at both gum disease and bite when it comes to having dental work performed or repaired.We talk Pankey dentistry, its benefits, and the oral systemic link.

This episode helps both the consumer and clinician alike. Listening to Christine will leave you feeling like you’ll want to find someone help you make sure your mouth is healthy for years to come.

Please visit Oral Health Coaching once you’ve heard her tell you why it’s the best investment you can make for your health!!
