Is Your Dentist Lying to You?

Oftentimes we take conventional wisdom we hear on the street for granted- we believe what we hear without verification and thus misinformation spreads rapidly and virally. While typically these fads are harmless and have no real world consequences, this shifts very quickly when we consider that at times the same principals can sometimes apply to “common sense” or facts that “everyone knows” and knowledge about our own health, and especially our teeth. This is why it is very important to verify things you think you know with dentists who are experienced in the practice.
