“People tend to take care of their oral health last. Preventive dental appointments can not only identify diseases, such as oral cancer or diabetes, but they can lessen the symptoms or occurrences of specific diseases,” said Dr. Austin. “The challenge in my industry is getting people through the door. If someone has the flu for 48 hours they tend to go to their doctor. If someone needs blood pressure medicine refills they go to their doctor. No one really wants to be in the dental chair, for the most part, more then they have to - so getting people in for regular checkups may propose challenges.”
Dr. Austin’s book is designed to help people with diabetes or pre-diabetes become informed on how diabetes impacts oral health and visa versa. The book also helps to prepare people for their dental visits. “The book addresses the reasons why diabetes and oral health are linked. I wrote this book to help people understand why they need to be checking in with a dentist on a regular basis and to help them understand what is to be expected during a regular visit,” finished Dr. Austin.
‘Your Dentist, Diabetes, & You: A Practical Guide to Oral Health for the Diabetic Patient’ was recently featured in Time Square on the PR Newswire. The book has been submitted for review by the top 100 literary editors in the country, is in review with Colgate now, and is available on Amazon.com as an immediate download.
