Nutrition Counseling

Today’s dental practice plays many roles in the realm of overall health. Not only do we provide checkups and perform a myriad of dental procedures, but we also serve as oral health educators. Most people are aware that daily brushing and flossing are essential however few realize how important what we eat and drink are to our oral health.

Nutritional counseling begins with an assessment of your diet including not only what foods you consume but also what you drink.  Learning about how the foods you eat and drink affect the bacteria and plaque in your mouth can help our clients make better choices.   Dr. Shah-Khan and staff help guide you on optimal nutrition practices and how to mitigate the risks of splurging on treats every now and then.
