Mouth and body – an intimate connection
Your oral health offers vital clues about your overall wellness. And oral problems can have a direct, negative impact on other areas of your body.

Your mouth is full of natural bacteria, most of which are harmless or easily controlled by the body’s natural defenses. But without good oral hygiene, they lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and worse. Medications which reduce saliva can increase risk.

Recent research links oral bacteria to systemic inflammation contributing to medical conditions such as endocarditis (heart infection), cardiovascular disease, diabetes, HIV/AIDS, osteoporosis, Alzheimer’s disease, and premature birth/low birth weight babies.

Keep your mouth – and by extension, your body – healthy by:

Brushing teeth, tongue, and soft tissues at least two times a day.

Replacing your toothbrush every three months or as soon as it shows wear.

Flossing before bedtime.

Eating a nutritious diet, and limiting sugary snacks.

Hey Mon! Jamaica, Here I Come...Again!
After a once in a lifetime experience serving as a volunteer to the 1000 Smiles dental mission last year (read more about it here), I am again honored to serve as a supervising dentist to this years dental student volunteers attending UCSF's School of Dentistry. These 3rd and 4th year dental students will gain experiences in extracting teeth and restorative dental procedures not typically encountered in a dental school setting. My role will be to help guide and mentor these students, and when needed jump in to lend a helping hand. I leave early September 2013 and will report more about it in next month's newsletter.
Hiking on Mt. Tamalpais
Although I don't get a chance to hike much on our local "Mt. Tam", I love reading and learning about it from a local photographer and naturalist, John W. Wall. I first met John and his wife Pamela, who happens to be a patient here, when I was involved with Headwaters Outdoor School based near Mt. Shasta, California. I LOVE John's nature photography, and, along with reading the narratives about his hikes on Mt. Tam, there is something that just captures me. He is truly an expert about Mt. Tam! Check it out at
Mt. Whitney - Third Time's a Charm!
After 2 previous successful but grueling hikes up and down Mt. Whitney in a day on its main hiker's trail, we again decide to tackle Mt. Whitney but on the lesser known Mountaineer's Route, the original route that John Muir climbed. We also decided to make it an overnight backpacking trip. Read more about our exciting and picturesque adventure in next month's newsletter.
