Oral-Arterial Fitness: Age Backwards

There are more than 30,000 miles of arterial highways in our bodies, and our mouth health affects every inch of them. Nearly 75 million Americans have unhealthy gums, which can nearly double the risk of a heart attack.  Cardiovascular disease remains the number one killer of Americans.  Here, at Dexter Dental Studio, we have a program to help individuals, “age backwards.” 

            Our program, Oral-Arterial Fitness (OAF), is based on the Bale/Doneen Method of heart attack and stroke prevention.  It is set on the foundation that strokes, heart attacks and diabetes are preventable and not just something, ”you have to live with.”  OAF uses precision medicine such as genetic testing, unique lab work, carotid artery scanning and oral disease detection to identify the root causes of inflammation which many doctors are not aware of. 

            We partner with people who wish to transform the quality of their lives and pursue a lifetime of health and wellness.  Based on precision medicine, individuals will learn action steps to take today to improve and protect their health. Experience freedom of health as we arm you with the knowledge to navigate the healthcare system and explore ways to change your own behaviors.

            Remember, genetics loads the gun and the environment pulls the trigger.  Just because you have a family history of cardiovascular disease or diabetes, doesn’t mean you are doomed to repeat it.
