Periodontal disease and Down syndrome patients
Susan P. Burzynski writes, "I began my day as I have every workday, checking my schedule, only to see some of my favorite patients were coming in. Joe and Jude like to repeat the same statements: 'Suzy, are you married?' 'I love you!' 'I'm happy!' Cynthia loves to tell me jokes during her entire appointment time. Caroline hates coming to the office and refuses to talk to anyone. Mark just wants to hug me and hold my hand. What do Joe, Jude, Cynthia, Caroline, and Mark have in common? They all have various levels of Down syndrome. The other common trait for these adults is periodontal disease."
