I have worked as a hygienist in several offices over the last 16 years, most of them were traditional practice offices. I am so happy to have found my place here with Rick! I have learned so much from him and I love the tools he provides for me so I can do my best work. I’m sure that you all can relate to the feeling of satisfaction of a job well done, and I get to enjoy that feeling here all the time.

I currently work at a traditional office one day a week and I am able to see side by side the results of traditional periodontal disease treatment versus our treatment which includes laser and ozone. Each time I follow up with a traditionally treated periodontal case I can’t help but notice that I get much better results here, where we use laser and ozone.

You may have heard over recent years about the growing concern regarding antibacterial soaps. While hand washing is one of the most effective ways to protect you and your family from getting sick, the soap you use may not have been the best choice.  If you walk up and down the soap aisle at your local store you will find many different ones to choose from.  There are at least 2,000 different products that have been previously labeled with the special “antibacterial” chemical.  The FDA had stated that antibacterial soaps are not any more effective than using plain soap. They even went as far as stating that the makers of the antibacterial soaps had not proven them to be safe.

Have you ever experienced the symptoms of dry mouth?   When your mouth feels sticky and dry like a cotton ball, you may even have a frequent thirst, sores in and around your mouth, cracked lips, a dry feeling in your throat, or a red, raw tongue.  Do you want to go moisten your mouth with a refreshing drink after reading that?  For some people these symptoms are a daily occurrence.  If you have any of these symptoms it could mean that your mouth is simply not producing enough saliva.

Our body is designed to constantly produce saliva.  The average, healthy person makes four to eight cups of saliva a day.  Saliva is good for you and it is made up of more than 99% water and the rest is minerals, and proteins to help your mouth stay healthy and fight infections.

We are using a completely natural substance in our office, ozone gas, which has seemingly miraculous capabilities. Ozone is a natural way to kill bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungus. These pathogens thrive in an oxygen poor environment. Ozone is a powerful oxidant, delivering oxygen to the body. The cellular membrane of bacteria, viruses, parasites, and fungi do not have antioxidants to protect them from this powerful oxidant. Healthy cells on the other hand have antioxidants and are unaffected by ozone and remain intact. An oxygen-rich environment is created where healthy cells thrive and pathogens die. The bi-products of ozone are simply water and oxygen, two elements essential to life.
