Doctors of the USA welcomes Anastasia Turchetta RDH, America’s Dental Hygienist, to talk about the relationship between Obesity and Periodontal disease.  She will address how the Biggest Loser show educates on healthy choices of food, exercise and even health risks yet oral health is completely passed over. She will also share how the Biggest Loser should be about losing weight but not your teeth! She recently did a blog on this: http://www.hygieneproductshopper.com/blog/gum-health-products-ensure-your-patient-not-biggest-loser
