In this episode of Defiant Health, I interview Oklahoma dentist, health and wellness coach, and advocate of managing the oral microbiome, Dr. Debbie Ozment.
I met Dr. Ozment during one of my two-way weekly video meetups on my DrDavisInfiniteHealth.com where she provided a presentation on the oral microbiome. I was impressed with her tremendous command of this area that drives home the message that oral health and the oral microbiome are major determinants of overall health. She discusses, for instance, how the oral microbe Porphyromonas gingivalis plays a role in Alzheimer’s dementia, and Fusobacterium from the gums is proving to be a major cause for colon cancer---all factors you are able to address. I believe you will find Dr. Ozment’s interview informative and enlightening.
