TAKING CONTROL OF YOUR DIABETES® - THE PODCAST! ...With Expert Endocrinologists Living with T1D, Drs. Steven V. Edelman & Jeremy Pettus

We all know that oral care is important and have been told our whole lives that we have to brush and floss every day. But what does good dental hygiene mean and why does it matter? And is it really a big deal if I skip brushing and flossing? More importantly, can my dentist tell? We’re sitting down with Dr. E’s hygienist and proclaimed tooth fairy, Dana Berliner, to talk about how diabetes can affect your oral care, and how your oral care can affect the rest of your body. Plus she answers all of our questions about what it actually takes to have good dental hygiene.
