Dr. Mac Lee: The economy and your dental health
from Victoria Advocate
It's all in the national news; dentists are suffering because of the economy. Because I give seminars to other dentists, am on the board of a nationally known dental educational group and I run with some very sophisticated dentists, I know the press is reporting the truth. People are putting off going to the dentist and are blaming their actions on the economy. Here is another way to look at the situation: Your teeth do not know it is a down economy. Injured or infected teeth can't heal themselves like the skin or bones can. Regardless of the economy, decayed teeth are going to continue to decay, gum and bone disease will spread more, eat more bone and infect other parts to the body and cracked teeth will continue to crack. These diseases really don't care what the stock market is doing.
